Making waves in the industry DJ XO has become a name that we have grown to love. As one of the CEO’s of NoSleep MG (Music Group), DJ XO is redefining what it is to control your narrative. A living definition of Trendsetting, DJ XO has taken his natural love for music and turned it into a curated source of fame, fortune, and fun.

Taking a moment away from Tour Lyfe as he is currently on the Soulfly Tour with Rodwave, DJ XO allowed me to go beyond the music and dig into what has brought him to this point as well as what keeps him going. From his ability to read sheet music, to life as a single parent, DJ XO is more than a talent, he is a Trendsetter who specializes in the curating of ear pleasing, party jumping, mood setting, genre blending, unparalleled artistic creativity.
