Duhamel Cassell aka DJ DU is an American DJ and remix producer from New York who lives in Tucson, Arizona but is in the middle of moving to Nashville as I type this post up. Being from a multi-cultural household, DU was exposed to many genres of music. Surprisingly enough, DU became interested in and making a career out of mixing country music songs after, while in college, he was offered the opportunity to DJ full time at a country and Top 40 night club. And really, the rest is history.
Since that time, his music career has ignited. During the American Country Awards (FOX), DU remixed “Something About A Truck” and “Beer Money” while country super star Kip Moore took the stage to a jam-packed arena in Las Vegas. Last year, he played to a Houston Rodeo BBQ Cookoff 80,000+ people over a weekend. He was part of the Grammy Block Party in Nashville in May, performed at CMA Fest both on the BMI Stage at LP Field then downtown on Lower Broadway for the late night party fans and has opened for Carrie Underwood. He was even part of Alabama & Friends At Sea’s 40th Anniversary Cruise celebrating one of the most prolific bands in country music historic milestone.
And it doesn’t stop there. DJ DU will be taking over Dee Jay Silver’s spot on Jason Aldean’s 2014 Night Train Tour for the month of January. Big things are coming this Du’s way for sure.
And a really big shout out to Duhamel Cassell aka DJ DU from fellow Tucsonan #CMchat creator Jessica Northey, who calls Du one of her BFF’s. Country Music Chat did a #CMchat Google Plus Twangout with DJ DU awhile back. You can watch it here
