DJ Erick La Peau had an early introduction to various musical genres and began spinning by the age of 15. In 1996, La Peau landed his first big break, as a regularly featured deejay for New York City’s popular New Music Café, at the suggestion of fellow rising star DJ Mark Ronson. Not long after, La Peau began to receive requests from other notable Manhattan nightclubs and lounges such as 90’s mega-club Life, Spa and the trendy Suite 16. By 2000, La Peau had a national following and was the premier deejay at clubs throughout the nation, including the regions of Miami, Los Angeles, Canada and New York’s ultra-posh summer retreat known as the Hamptons.
By early 2000’s La Peau was requested as the sole DJ for two of New York City’s most elite events: the 29th birthday party for rap superstar Sean “P. Diddy” Combs and the Benefit Life Concert hosted by music legend Prince. Other stars would soon take notice, and to date, La Peau fulfills regular celebrity requests from some of today’s most relevant personalities, including Jennifer Lopez, Wyclef Jean, Kimora Lee Simmons, Ciara and Jay Z.
Securing coveted jobs for such corporations as Nike, T-Mobile, Emporio Armani and Apple, gained La Peau international exposure. And although the Big Apple serves as La Peau’s main residence, it is not uncommon to find the diverse deejay spinning at some of the most exclusive venues across the globe, maintaining consistent international contracts with major discotheques in Tokyo, London, Zurich, Munich and Copenhagen.
