◊ Musically influenced by the innovative sounds of Michael Jackson, Prince and James Brown, at the early age of 5 Infa-Red fell in love with many genres of music, particularly Hip Hop. Originally from Brockton, Massachusetts, Infa-Red learned to Dj at the age of 14 in Brooklyn, New York, where he spent his summers with family. Not necessarily wanting to breakdance or rap, his affection for Hip Hop and listening to the genius of Jam Master Jay, DJ Scratch, and Kid Capri was his driving force to learn. After he heard the likes of radio DJ pioneers such as Red Alert and Funk Flex and Dj Enuff on the radio, he knew he wanted to dedicate 110% into the art of DJ’ing as his career.
◊ Infa-Red made the move to Orlando, Florida in 2001 and began playing small parties in 2003.

In 2007, Infa-Red was selected to do an internship with Power 95.3 and was named as the official concert DJ for all of their sponsored events. In 2010, he was added as a full-time DJ for their mix show and is officially part of the Power 95.3 family. The year 2012 was a break through year for Infa Red. He was selected out of thousands of Dj’s across the country, to be on VH1’s Master of The Mix.
