DJ LS One™ is “more than your average DJ”. Born in Brooklyn, NY as a young boy LS idolized his father also a DJ, as he would take him along on his DJ jobs. This is when his father realized there was no doubt of his first born son’s destiny. Continuing a legacy his father began, LS lead his brothers to DJ as well (DJ Dummy – Common & J. Cole’s DJ, & DJ Enigma). DJ LS One™ has steadily rocked crowds since the tender age of 8 years old. Being a quadruple threat, DJ LS One™ has definitely established himself as one of the industries most talented, sought after and energetic masters of the turntables by playing open format, house, dance & hip hop parties. His belief is a true DJ is not limited to what he/she can play. This is how the buzz about DJ LS One™ began.
In 1989, LS One’s raw and undeveloped talent was noticed in this young teen & led him to a spot on 91.5 FM WNYC, with Mr. Magic & DJ Mr. Cee, one of the hottest underground hip-hop shows in New York hip-hop history. After working at 91.5 FM, LS filled in for Mr. Magic’s Sunday Old School Show on Hot 97 FM when needed.

During this time, he interviewed the rap trio ONYX. This is when they not only recognized his talent but his professionalism. The group invited LS to meet The Legendary Late Jam Master Jay & to audition for the job as Onyx’ DJ. Many DJ’s tried out for the position but LS One’s skills, control & professionalism on and off stage led Jam Master Jay & Sticky Fingaz to choose him to be Onyx’ DJ. Jam Master Jay took LS under his wing & started to groom a young talent into a consummate professional. Thus began his ride with the DEF JAM family.
