DJ Lazy Eyez is a Denver based award winning DJ with over 25 years of experience.
DJ Lazy Eyez got his start as a producer, co-host, and DJ for Colorado’s legendary Basementalism radio show, which during his residency, was one of the top search results on the internet for Underground Hip-Hop. During his college years, he was also the General Manager for the student run CU-Boulder Radio station, Radio 1190. During these years, he honed his business skills, event planning, and industry connections.
From there, he has literally worked his way from the basement to renowned stages nationwide.
With his work as the DJ for The ReMINDers, DJ Lazy Eyez has opened for an extensive list of hip-hop artists including Snoop Dogg, Nas, Big Boi (Outkast), Lauryn Hill, The Roots, De La Soul, Mos Def, Anderson Paak, Wiz Khalifa, and more. He has performed everywhere from The Fillmore Auditorium in San Francisco to the Kennedy Center for Performing Arts in Washington D.C. to Colorado’s famed Red Rocks. He has been on several national tours with artists including Brother Ali, Thievery Corporation, and more. He has also been fortunate enough to fill in as a backup show DJ for famed Hip-Hop MCs such as Rakim, Brother Ali, and Killah Priest (Wu-Tang Clan).
At this stage of his DJ career, DJ Lazy Eyez is not one to play at just any nightclub or bar.
He is a strong believer in curating his own events that bring a diverse and inclusive crowd together in the spirit of Hip-Hop but with music that spans across all genres. His experience putting together events ranges from throwing famed Hip-Hop events such as the DMC DJ Battle, working renowned brands such as Red Bull Music Academy, throwing concerts for countless up and coming national acts, to throwing cherished local events. Through his events, he is a believer in providing opportunities for other DJs, mentoring the next generation, and fostering Denver’s diverse community in the spirit of music and dance.
