Dj Dedan Bio

Dedan Anderson first got exposed to the creativity and energy of the underground dance music scene while growing up and clubbing in New York City during the mid 80’s. His musicality was formed by the DJ’s in the eclectic New York underground nightlife scene such as: Tony Humphries, Timmy Regisford, Frankie Knuckles, Larry Levan, Duke of Denmark, Frankie Feliciano, Louie Vega, Jellybean Benitez to name a few.

Originally a dancer, Dedan helped flesh out the bay area music landscape as a DJ after he arrived in Berkeley in the late 80’s by sharing the sound that he had been brought up with back east. He has had the good fortune of being a part of several succesful nightlife ventures: “the Beehive” at the Birdkage, with Dj Iz, where they spun an eclectic mixture of hip hop, soul, dancehall, house and classics; “what if?” at Zanzibar, with Dj Toks, where Dancehall met soul and house; and culminating with “Brothers & Sisters” at Luka’s and Vibe Lounge, with Dj Daniela, successfully introducing soulful dance music and house to the east bay.

Through his DJing he hopes to help expose more of the world to the amazing depth, awe and soul of the music and the dance.
