Not Your Average DJ… By the age of 10, DJ Forerunner already had a grasp on Hip-Hop, Funk, Rock, Soul, Pop & R&B and you can hear those influences when he’s performing. DJ Forerunner mixes lyrics and melodies to create a one-of-a-kind experience. Forerunner (or Melvin Lewis to many) is a self-taught DJ born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio and currently residing in Lexington, Kentucky. He’s always had an ear for music and always kept a rhythm in some form or fashion. He started off playing a variety of instruments as a child. In High School he became very involved as a drummer and continues to play to this day. The drumming skills he learned allowed him to easily transition to doing some music production in his late teens. But it wasn’t until the combination of watching a DJ Jazzy Jeff Video on YouTube and DJing his first event in college that he knew what he wanted to do with his life.
DJ Forerunner is an amazing Open Format DJ. He doesn’t stick to any particular script or formula when it comes to spinning records. This means you can hear him playing anything from todays hottest in Hip-Hop to Classic dance tracks of the 70s and 80s. Inspired by some of the great “forerunners” (pun intended), he brings their style, showmanship and professionalism to every gig. You can now catch DJ Forerunner traveling in your city DJing various clubs, corporate events, weddings and more.
Little did he know that blaring music from his speakers out the windows to the neighborhood as a kid would ultimately be a foreshadowing of the life he would one day lead
