Meet The Curator: Doran Nelson

Doran Nelson musicto Playlist Curator

Doran Nelson hailing from the Bronx, New York, upon hearing his first rap record, it was love at first listen. At a time when hip hop was still young, fresh and new he began DJing. Initially Inf began blending his father’s soul records with hip hop instrumentals purchased from the local record stores that his pocket change had become so familiar with. Now, amongst a neighborhood following and growing demand, his freestyle mixes suddenly became valued. Spinning heads as well as records, before he knew it, Inf found himself hosting block parties, school dances, talent shows and as he proclaims “wherever there were people and music…so was I.” 

Naturally, Doran's appreciation for authentic HipHop music has him in the mix of a lot of tastemakers depending on his distinctive taste for up & coming artist. Today Doran is a DJ over at www.dtfradio with partner and friend named Doggie Diamonds Tv which airs live every Wednesday night 7-9pm via tunein app under DTF RADIO.

MusicTo Rep NY gives you guys the listener a taste of what up & coming as well as established NY artist are doing for the New York Hip Hop scene. This playlist is packed with the embodiment of capturing New York's thriving underground Hip Hop scene with pure lyrics.banging production with clever and witty wordplay that gets over looked in this dreary low frequency sound that has the Culture by the balls and is on its knees begging for "TRAP MUSIC" to let it go. 

As an ardent fan I seem to always question why certain hiphop records are never pushed to the forefront, or why a certain artist that has put so much work in their craft but never get recognized for all their hard work. That's what Music To Rep NY is all about, giving the underdog some shine in this cluttered cyber world know as the WILD WEST of the Internet.
