Derrick "DJ Dezerk" Grimes was born and raised in Raleigh NC, and fell in love with music at an early age. He remembers playing outside as a kid with his friends in historic Raleigh North Apts, and hearing a neighbor practicing on his turntables playing the newest rap songs. Dezerk was drawn to these sounds reverberating through his neighborhood...And even though he couldn't afford turntables at the time, he knew he had to get some. While navigating through the challenges we all face growing up, Dezerk might have taken some wrong turns here and there, but he stayed on a musical path. By any means necessary, he was on the grind until he was able to get his own turntables. As he was perfecting his skills, his brother Lil V Nature started rapping and needed beats, so Dezerk started buying equipment for recording and producing music. Then one day a friend named Brad also known as Damage from local national rap group Yaggfu Front introduced Dezerk on how to record and make beats on a computer, it was like a whole new world had opened for him and Dezerk has never looked back. Mostly self-taught, Dezerk is one of the most sought out deejay, producer, and engineer in Raleigh. He is constantly looking for the next opportunity to bring people and music together. ?He often humbly brags and says ,"I have deejayed at every club in Raleigh...The club may now be called a different name since the last time I was there, but I rocked there too"... You currently can hear DJ Dezerk spinning on 92.1 Choice FM in Raleigh every Monday at 12 noon for the "Lunch Mix", as well as at clubs and events all over NC and VA. Dezerk also does a DJ demonstration at Duke University for a hip hop class each semester, and has launched a record label/entertainment business called G.L.O.W. Entertainment. Do you know DJ Dezerk? Well you should....
