The Queens-based Arubian DJ has opened for Brand Nubian, Nickodemus and Jazzanova and has spun at storied NYC institutions The Rub and S.O.B’s.
Recently, Lil Tiger has helped organize parties and events as a member of the Sound Liberation Front, a Brooklyn-based, non-profit music and culture organization devoted to the power of music as a liberating and unifying force capable of catalyzing positive social change.
He also co-hosted two of Texas’ seminal underground Hip-Hop shows, the House of Phat Beats (Austin/KVRX) and the Dolla Holla Show (Austin/KO.OP).
He has released five mix CDs: Na Mundo (house + broken beat), Night Groove Vol. 1-3 (live broken beat mixes), and Chainsaw Juggling Vol. 1 (dancehall), all under the Parakitachi umbrella.
