“DJ Bishop is one of the Best DJs in the Game. He has a real love for music and he knows how to put it together in the mix. He will stand the test of time! He is a real DJ to watch.” – Sir Charles Mixin’ Dixon (WBLS Master Mixer)
DJ Bishop, also known as “Dat Eclectic DJ”, has built a strong reputation in the biz as one of the most dynamic and diverse DJ’s to ever master the 1s and 2s. Originally from Brooklyn, New York, Bishop has been influenced by many of the greats that have also originated there. This explains his Hip-Hop and Gospel roots, but now residing just twenty minutes outside of Philadelphia after relocating from Smithfield, Rhode Island and Hartford, Connecticut, Bishop’s musical tastes have also been influenced by the Club / Dance / Techno scene of New England. And by keeping his ear to the streets, Bishop doesn’t neglect any form of music that’ll “keep ‘em on the dance floor.”
Bishop started his career in 1994 as a radio DJ on WJMF 88.7FM (Rhode Island) by hosting two radio shows: “Wakin’ Up With Tha’ Buttas” on Saturday Mornings and “Gospel Flava” on Sunday Mornings. While hosting both shows, Bishop branched out and became a freelance DJ for Bryant University’s home basketball and volleyball games. Shortly thereafter, he became the resident DJ for the Bryant University Cornerstone – Bryant’s campus pub.
Upon graduating from Bryant University in 1998 (where Bishop earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Computer Information Systems), Bishop relocated to Hartford, Connecticut to regroup and earn the cash necessary to invest in his own equipment. After guest spinning at several clubs in Downtown Hartford, Bishop became a self-sustained mobile disc jockey spinnin’ at weddings, sweet 16s, family reunions, etc.
In 2001, Bishop made a well needed career move and relocated to Philadelphia where he became the resident DJ for “The Groove Shack” located in the Jillians Entertainment Complex (now Dave & Busters). At the same time, he also joined the talented entertainment staff of DJ’s Available Sound & Light in Moorestown, NJ as a DJ-For-Hire. Working for both companies have given Bishop exposure not only to multiple styles of music, but to multiple types of parties. It’s this style that branded him the nickname of “eclectic” from his friends and family.
In 2005, DJ Bishop made his return to radio by producing, mixing, and hosting a weekly Internet radio show called “ENTER THE ECLECTIC“. Due to the show’s impressive popularity, it has been picked up and syndicated on several radio stations across the country and overseas including where it all began for DJ Bishop, WJMF 88.7FM, Bryant University Radio. Word about DJ Bishop’s mixing talent has spread so rapidly, he was made an official AOL Radio DJ. His mixes were listened to in rotation monthly on AOL Radio. From time to time, DJ Bishop will guest mix for other stations as well. DJ Bishop was a guest mixer on the syndicated Michael Baisden Show where his mixes were heard on over 60 FM stations nationwide.
DJ Bishop has spun at some of the hottest spots in the South Jersey / Philadelphia area and has made guest appearances at clubs in Atlantic City and Las Vegas. He spins open format music (dance, top 40, hip-hop, R&B, commercial house, rock, disco, Latin, reggae, 80’s, 90’s, and more) and music videos. DJ Bishop currently resides in southern New Jersey, and is the Vice President of The Mix Syndicate, a worldwide DJ organization.
Today, the 2010 IDJ Internet DJ of the Year can be found in the mix heavy. He has a weekly podcast and is part of the rotating staff of DJs aboard the Spirit of Philadelphia.
Whether it’s at a private gig, a club, or on the radio, you can count on musical experience like no other.
