The Sapphire Pool and Day Club Resident DJ Battle is around the corner, and each day we are giving you a sneak peek into each of our finalists for the battle on March 19th at 9PM! Meet DJ Zhaldee!
DJ Zhaldee grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area’s rich DJ Culture. He started the turntables in the summer of ’88 and quickly became the hometown favorite, tearing down all the local house parties and school dances. Determined to make his mark in the music industry, he pursued production and studio recording. After a few years hiatus, Zhaldee found himself practicing his craft again and agreed to DJ the “Spirit Party” for Southwest Airlines on the USS Hornet Aircraft Carrier in Alameda, CA. More than 5,000 party people screaming their lungs out on the deck of the carrier in the San Francisco Bay convinced Zhaldee that he needed to return to his first love (the turntables). Ever since then, the sky has been the limit.
Zhaldee holds residencies in some of the hottest clubs between San Francisco, San Diego, and Las Vegas. He has shared the stage with DJ Jazzy Jeff, DJ AM, Clinton Sparks, and DJ Shortkut just to name a few. Zhaldee has headlined events hosted by Kobe Bryant, Carmelo Anthony, Sammy Hagar, Sean Kingston, Trey Songs, Cali Swag District, and the list goes on.
