Throughout his tenure in DC for the past 20 years, Charles (DJ Dirty Hands) is a true testament to his work ethic and in reality, his philosophy on life. Whether it is mixing the latest hit on the deck or using his creative mind to develop a new business idea, Charles’ keen eye for design and driven personality has inevitably left a lasting impression on the competitive market of DC.
Years of honing his skills have lead to some incredible headlining engagements, from DJ’ing the Democratic National Convention for Bill Clinton to becoming a mentor at the Red Bull Music Academy. Whatever endeavor Charles decides to take on, he leaves no stone unturned in his quest for a successful outcome.
Using his extensive background in the business as a DJ, Charles went on to broaden his skill set once again by going on to open one of DC’s hottest nightclubs, Fly Lounge. An accomplishment he would repeat with Angels Rock Bar in Baltimore, MD; another iteration of Fly Lounge in Aspen, CO; and once more in DC's own, Heist nightclub.
DJ Dirty Hands has performed alongside the likes of Beyonce, Outkast, Stevie Wonder, John Legend, Rihanna, and the Black Eyed Peas; and headlined events like South by South Lawn, NBA All-Star-Afterparties, and BET tribute parties, to name a few.
Charles dominates any venue and infuses every party with his versatility, and his ability to read crowds. With such, he continues to captivate the entire industry by incorporating his love for music with an entrepreneurial drive to success.
