DJ Scientific

It’s been 11 years since DJ Scientific started collecting records and getting familiar with the turntables and 10 years since he started producing beats. Today, the Albuquerque, N.Mex. native is as comfortable spinning on air as in the clubs – having spun for KUNM 89.9’s “Street Beat” show for 10 years, as well as in some of Las Vegas’ top tier nightclubs. Scientific has opened for countless hip-hop shows and flipped it at B-boy jams everywhere and anywhere. Catch him Friday nights in the midst of all the action at The Lounge in the Palms Casino.

I still love to look for records, so records, and kind of like a house party DJ gone berserk. I'm not really like a big club DJ, but it fits in there.
