Captivating, this word alone defines what it feels like when your senses go on a magical journey while you groove the sounds of D ROYY. Roy Restrepo, better known by his followers as D ROYY, was born in Bogota, Colombia of Chinese and Colombian descent. Music was instilled in his mind since birth as his older brother was a known guitarist in the Bogota Orchestra. However, guitars and strings were not what caught this artist attention. He only heard the drums. At the tender age of 10 he picked up his first set of drumsticks and never looked back. His influences range from heavy metal bands such as Metallica and Megadeth, to Latin pop artists like Juanes and MANA, making his sound and delivery truly unparalleled. His journey into the music world began at 15 years of age as he toured the upper east coast with his second band The Troublemakers. The drums were his passion, yet something was missing. It was time for a change. After a deep exploration into the house music scene his creative and musical fire was reignited but with a new direction, combining the skill of a drummer with the allure of being a DJ/producer. ‘07 was his introduction into the DJ world putting together his own events at various venues throughout the New Jersey area. In ’09 he exploded into the NY house scene tearing up venues all over Queens and Manhattan. Places include Soel Lounge, System, Play Lounge for the Queens Music Festival, Pure Nightclub, Z Hotel, Glazz and more and thats just Queens. In Manhattan D36, Pacha, WIP, Greenhouse, Mansion, Le’Souk, Branch, Dream Hotel to name a few. From Dream Nightclub in the esteemed Hamptons area to Mekka in SOBE back to Elite Nightclub in Stamford, CT this artist has kept the people moving and the energy unmatched. His understanding of the connection between someones vibe and the collective vibe of an event distinguish him from others and gives him an insight into how to alter those vibes and bring a party to life. Music is only the beginning. At the moment D ROYY is focusing on expanding his creativity through video editing and producing as well as collaborating with the top artists in his and other genres. Take a listen and be engulfed by the the aura, the passion, the mystique of the sounds that is D ROYY and let your feet do the rest to the beat of the drums.
