Currently residing in San Francisco, DJ Worthy grew up around
Washington DC in the early days of Deep Dish, Scott Henry and the early
American rave scene. In the late 90’s after moving to New York City,
Worthy met his good friend Justin Martin and was exposed to the sounds
of people like LTJ Bukem, Stacey Pullen, and Sasha. All of these
influences made an impression on this young producer as he began to
play records of all genres from hip hop to breaks to techno and drum n
In 2001 Worthy set up his studio in San Francisco and began producing house music. He began DJing around the city at clubs such as The Top, Lit, and Anu. Soon a San Francisco tech house label called Dirtybird, soon noticed Worthy’s talent and asked him to be a resident DJ at their huge monthly summer event in Golden Gate Park along side of Claude VonStroke, Justin Martin, and Christian Martin. He has played along side other great DJs such as Jesse Rose, JT Donaldson, Lance Desardi, and Luke Solomon. In 2006 Worthy started his own label called Katabatic Records to give him a way to release his own music. Katabatic Records has been releasing a steady stream of quality tech house and has gaining praises for its edgy music.
2007 is looking to be a break out year for Worthy with two releases coming out on dirtybird including a remix of Claude VonStroke’s “The Whistler” and an ep on Matt Tolfrey’s label Leftroom Limited.
