You can find him spreading his gospel through open minded DJ sets, original tracks & remixes, weekly radio broadcasts, and colorful design work. As a DJ, he can easily whip the most mainstream crowd into a frenzy, but he is at his best when he digs deep into his crates for funky grooves, broken boogie, and thumping bass. When it comes to making music, lil’dave’s productions draw from his hiphop roots, as well as his love of house, afrobeat, uk garage, salsa, jazz, synthesizers, and soul.

DJ Shango
Bringing indigenous and world sounds that uplift, enlighten and open the chakras, Shango brings his vision to life through the motion and raw power on the dance floor. Art and music collide, healing the audience of their traumas using movement, chanting, mantras, crystal vibrations, live drummers, and tribal body art. Shango’s ancient futuristic artform creates a constant flow of physical and ethereal release within the audience, purposefully increasing the power and influence of the healing energy directed toward the crowd each event, creating a massive healing movement in Philadelphia and beyond.

Shango is the founder of The Organic Mindz Tribe(The OM Tribe) consisting of spiritual healers, energy workers, Dj’s, and volunteers, all in sympathetic resonance, journeying towards one aligned purpose: healing themselves in order to heal the world. Together, The OM Tribe host Spirit Quest, a monthly Ecstatic Dance and Sober Healing Party that combines crystal meditation, sound healing, live Dj’s, guided indigenous movement, and Yoga, introducing the participants to complete mind, body, and spirit alignment.
