DJ Noumenon has dedicated the greater part of his life to the DJ world; teaching, consulting, and curating, all while currently working as an active DJ artist in New York City. While originating from Albany, NY, his career began in North Carolina, where his love of the art flourished. He started as a turntablist in North Carolina and pushed the envelope doing so, winning numerous battles, leading studio projects, and hosting some of the biggest events all over the state.
In 2002 he and long time DJ partner Slim Deluxe joined forces with North Carolina emcees, Konsci and Tronic to form the indie Hip-Hop group Mindsone. Throughout the last 14 years, Mindsone has released several singles and albums globally, and has worked with notable artists such as Kev Brown, Oddisee, Rhapsody, J. Rawls, Homeboy Sandman, John Robinson, and Illmind.
In 2005 Noms moved back to New York to pursue a career in teaching the art-form of DJing at the world famous Scratch DJ Academy. Within 9 years of working at Scratch, Noumenon educated over 8,000 students, held the title as both the NYC and National Academy Director, handled course curriculum and development, and managed 50+ instructors nationwide. In 2014 Noms decided it was time to step away from Scratch DJ Academy to dedicate his full time and energy to his craft.
Throughout his 20 year career, Noms has been featured in numerous national media outlets, including Fuse TV, Spike TV, MTV, and Forbes, among others. He has spun at major venues throughout NYC while sharing the stage with legendary artists such as Questlove, Mark and Samantha Ronson, Sublime with Rome, MF Doom, Pete Rock, DJ Qbert, Little Brother, and Dave Chapelle, just to name a few. His experience is endless, which shines through in his performances.
