DJ Ryan Live

His brother did not continue to on this route, but is still Ryan’s biggest influence in the DJ industry and continues to support him to this day.
Although he has been DJing for over 12 years, it has been an up and down road for Ryan. He initially started DJing house music in the late 90’s with the boom of L.A.’s Power 106 Powertools late night show. As his skills progressed, Ryan worked his way into the hip-hop scene and landed his first major gig in Orange County in 1998.
