J.R. Lingad, best known as "deejayskitz", is a native Los Angeles DJ who is highly sought after for his unique style behind the turntables. Seamlessly bridging classic hip-hop, r&b, old school, electronica, reggae, and everything in between, he has created a unique lane for himself that differentiates himself from the rest.
Deejayskitz currently holds a residency called, "TheChill" at Amor Y Tacos in Cerritos, where he plays every 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Friday's. Also, he is a resident DJ at Lock n Key in Los Angeles every 1st Fridays and occasionally plays at the Line Hotel and Escala on Saturdays.
He is best known for his extensive and classic collection of music videos, which he mixes and manipulates on the fly. These videos leave his guests feeling nostalgic and bring back a feel good aesthetic. The videos transport them to "back in the day"; reminiscent of their adolescence. His guests don't just hear the songs they listened to on the way to grade school, they're also able to enjoy the videos they grew up watching and recording on The Box channel, MTV, and even watch music videos their parents never even knew existed. If you've never seen the music video to "93 Til' infinity by Souls of Mischief", "Rock with you by Michael Jackson", or "MaryJane by Rick James", you're encouraged to pay a visit to the venues mentioned above and let him take you back to when music was fun, fresh and inviting.
Deejayskitz also has the pleasure of working with friend and rising artist, Anderson .Paak, with whom he shares a music studio with in Los Angeles. Some of his past event flyers are also featured in a book called, "I design Flyers Vol. 1" by Lee James. He also has an Internet Radio Show, where he ventures off to more of an eclectic style of mixing, stuff that's not really played on the radio.
"Being able to do what you love is a blessing. Not everyone has or has been given the opportunities I've been blessed with and I'm very thankful for all the support everyone has given me over the years. I take pride in what I do and consider myself to be the backbone of the party. If people aren't dancing and having fun, I'm not doing my job."
