Rocking the Chicagoland area since 1999

 

D.J. OuttaControl, or better known as OC, started out spinning the Chicago scene at the age of 19 while attending college at Purdue University. What started out as a weekend hobby with some Vinyl,  2 Turntable's, and a Microphone has evolved into a much longer and amazing career. He has transitioned from the way it was to the way it is by rocking Vinyl and CD's to now rocking Serato with either the control Vinyl, CD's, or USB. OC landed his first 21 and Up residency after graduation while living in Orlando, FL at the Rock & Roll Beach Club in Pleasure Island at Walt Disney World. He came back to Chicagoland and has played guests sets in Las Vegas, Seattle, Arizona, Puerto Rico, Wisconsin, and Indiana. 

​​

He works with outstanding entertainment groups such as Lettuce Entertain You, Imperial Entertaiment, Ala Carte Entertainment, & Day And Night Entertainment. He started out as an Interactive Entertainer and worked his way up the ranks to hone his skills not only as a DJ/VJ but as an MC as well. He is the Founder of Xtreme Entertainment Chicago, which, specializes in wedding entertainment and music, and is Co-Founder of Xplosive Sounds Entertainment. He has rocked the decks with well-known Chicago D.J.'s, such as Bobby D (BMX Radio, B96 FM & Dance Factory FM), Mixin Marc (B96 FM/Movement Music & Juicy Music), Alex Peace & Brian Boncher (TRU Musica), Tim Spinnin Schommer (BMX Radio & B96 FM), Billy The Kid (B96 FM), Tony Arzadon (Juicy Music), DJ Flipside (B96 FM), DJ Spin (B96 FM), Steve Smooth (Fly Records), Nick Rockwell (Skam Artist), & Kings of Class (Afterlife Productions) to name a few. 

In addition to working with Chicago DJ's, he has worked with major national country acts for their live performances as well as album release parties. Recently, he set the stage for Cole Swindell, Kip Moore, Adam Craig, Kelsea Ballerini, Lee Brice, Brother's Osborne, Cadillac Three, Locash, Old Dominion, Dustin Lynch, Morgan Wallen, and Randy Houser. He was honored to open and perform at the Windy City Smokeout 2018 for Brett Eldredge, Aaron Lewis, Riley Green, Cale Dodds, and Ashley McBryde. He also partners with Big 95.5FM and US 99.5FM for special country appearances and pre-concert parties.

Music and gear have evolved over the years and so has DJ OC. OC has built a library capable of rocking any age group with over 6,000 tracks/videos from Big Band/60's to today's hottest and most current hits. This library allows him to either go completely audio or a nice mix of both audio and video.

OC primarily prefers mixing EDM/House music but is also one of Chicago's top Country DJ's. He is well versed in most genre's of music including Top 40, Pop, Rock, and Rap/Hip Hop. He is available for live shows, bar/nightclub, wedding/corporate, and special events. He been in the music industry for over 20 years, and is a premium DJ, Entertainer, and MC.
