Miami, FL (August 27, 2008) â€“ Returning for a second consecutive year with the University of Miami, DJ Entice of WEDR-99 Jamz (99.1FM) comes back as the â€˜Canes Football Official DJ for the season opener Thursday August 28 at 7:30pm for the first-ever meeting with Charleston Southern. Complimenting the energetic University of Miami band, you can hear DJ Entice mixing and scratching the hottest tunes straight from the stadium’s field.
This year inaugurates the first season the team will play inside the Dolphin Stadium which recently completed a $250 million upgrade seating nearly 75,000 people. The Orange Bowl hosted its last University of Miami football game on November 10, 2007. After an emotional and much anticipated decision, the team will embark upon a new era in its football history as the Dolphin Stadium becomes their new home.
“I am probably as excited as the players to step onto the fresh green of the field,” says DJ Entice, “this is definitely familiar ground to me after DJ’ng for the Miami Dolphins in â€˜05.” Entice made a ground-breaking surprise announcement on BET’s nationally televised show The Bassment in 2005, when he revealed the news that he had signed on as the first Official NFL DJ signed by a team.
Head Coach Randy Shannon called up the radio station and requested to bring in DJ Entice as their Official DJ in 2007. Shannon, along with the players, coaches and fans, took a quick liking to the young rising star from Miami.
“Being the first NFL DJ for the Dolphins was a great experience, but being part of the â€˜Canes really hits close to home. They’re a champion team and have extremely loyal fans; which adds to the flare of being part of the team. It also touches my heart in a special way. Sean Taylor, who was killed in a home invasion last year, was a friend of mine. We went to the same high school and we were teammates on the football team, I’m honored to wear an Orange and Green jersey out there.”
With a diverse background, half-Brazilian half-French, DJ Entice has an understanding for the melting pot that makes up Miami’s unique culture and proves it through his dexterity at the cross fader. He often references his passion for Brazilian Samba (of course) and the beats that originate from the motherland. “I have tons of family in Brazil and I love the country. But I attended Brazil’s Carnaval years ago which took it to another level. Let’s just say, you haven’t seen or heard a drumline until you go to Carnaval.”
His love for the American sport and passion for music fuse together and are manifested on the field. Entice is also an up-and-coming producer who works sleepless hours in the studio to perfect his craft. Another testament to the DJ’s commitment and passion for music.
