Robbie Wilde, the open format DJ, has rapidly become a respected force. His name caught fire for his talents in New Jersey / New York’s music scene in the early 2000s. At first, it was difficult for music fans to grasp the concept of a deaf DJ, let alone one that can challenge some of the front-runners of the music scene. Eventually, word spread and curiosity took the world by storm as his story gained traction across an array of publications and industries.
New tech movements are increasingly showing interest; from futuristic wearables to next-level sound devices, engineers and brand marketers alike seek his advice and story. Projects with teams at Intel, Google, HP, Cisco, Hereplus, Subpac, Bayer, and more continue to grow press coverage from all sectors, including BBC Radio, Fuse, MTV, Insomniac, BuzzFeed, CNN, FOX, Elite Daily, and more. Alliances with the deaf community include the Deaf Professional Arts Network (DPAN), the Able Kids Foundation, the Starkey Hearing Foundation and Able Planet, along with national tours at schools and universities for the deaf with other creative visionaries from the deaf community.
Hollywood began showing interest in 2015, as Robbie found himself performing high-profile gigs, covering film releases at Paramount Pictures and 20th Century Fox, and featuring in large-scale films such as Before We Were Kings. Clubs and industry events have began taking stock in the open format movement with Robbie spinning at world-famous nightclubs such as Surrender Nightclub (Las Vegas), Tryst Nightclub (Las Vegas), Pacha Nightclub (New York City), 10AK (New York City), Webster Hall (New York City), and Daddy O’s (Cancun), along with Madison Square Garden, NYFW, Miami Music Week, CES Vegas, NBA events, and the list goes on.
It all started from humble beginnings … his love for the turntables and ability to give the freedom-seekers of the night a journey to remember.
