You may have seen the MTV special True Life: I'm a Muay Thai Fighter, which chronicled the times of Ben Garcia as he trained and traveled to Thailand for a bare knuckle championship. While the experience and win was a huge honor, the more accessible-to-an-MTV-audience portion of the show dealt with his alter-identity, the versatile and sought-after DJ OB-One.
Raised on healthy helpings of rock and hip hop, embraced by punk, groomed through drum & bass, and enamored with reggae, its 23 years in the game and DJ OB-One possesses the skills and selection to deliver you an auditory beating.
Originally hailing from Chicago, OB-One moved to Las Vegas over 2 decades ago with his eye on the nightclub industry, then in its infancy. He made his bones as the resident at the first nightclub to reach legendary status in Sin City, Baby's inside the Hard Rock Hotel, and from there its been a week-in-week-out passion. He's played at every hot spot in Las Vegas, and the frequent jaunts across the US & Canada, as well as recently taking it worldwide to Peru & Singapore; have put his name on the lips of every person of note in the nightlife industry. He's also touched millions over the airwaves with his radio career starting at Wild 102 then moving on to Las Vegas' heritage station, KLUC. He refuses to stop there & has moved into the production & record label game. His current project w/his partner J.Paul, HavocNdeeD, is quickly becoming a household name in the heavy bass electronic world with official remixes for Linkin Park, She Wants Revenge, & most recently Cypress Hill & Rusko. And is if that weren’t enough to keep him going, he’s also a co-owner of the underground electronic music label 119 Sound.
OB-One has played at venues from one end of the strip to the other. On the hottest nights, you can find him serving songs to nightclub divas and high rollers or frenzied bass hungry ravers alike. This has placed him in the limelight, rising high above the masses of Las Vegas's over-saturated DJ game. But it doesn't go to his head; he utilizes that discipline and calm required of a Muay Thai boxer. Brush up on your martial arts:
