Catch DZA (real name Adrian Douzmanian) on Thursday, November 11 from 7-9PM. D.Z.A.began to DJ because of his love for hip hop and the hip hop culture. Inheriting and collecting a solid amount of records made him want to take it to the next level: DJing. At first Adrian would just mess around in his room and try to make mixtapes to drive to, but eventually he met local Miami DJ's who changed his mind. At first wanting to open at chocolate sundays just so he could get in, D.Z.A. is now a resident for miami's longest lasting classic hip hop parties. Through Chocolate Sundays he's been able to branch out, and is now playing at various parties around the city. Over the last year he's been DJing with Mr Mauricio regularly at clubs such as the Wall, Pangaea Lounge, Mokai, etc... Adrian's main musical influences include DJ Shadow, Pete Rock, J Dilla, Cut Chemist, DJ Krush, IAM, Supreme NTM and Boards of Canada.
