Pass The 40

PassThe40 is a DJ from Arlington, TX, whose passion for music shows in his performances, production, and mixes. A student of music from hip hop, to jazz, to edm, and everything in between. He fell in love with house music during his early years in high school, listening to the now-defunct radio show, EdgeClub102 on 102.1 KDGE in Dallas. Inspired by DJ Merritt and various other names in EDM that appeared on the show, he got his first pair of belt-driven Nu-Mark turntables in 2002. From that point, he developed his craft. Getting into production in 2005 under the name Wavey Dave, he turned his focus mainly to hip hop. His production is reminiscent of Madlib, J Dilla, and Fat Jon, with sample-heavy rhythms and an emphasis on drums. In 2011, PassThe40 took the Dallas Club scene by storm. Given a chance by DJ Yosh from the duo Yosh &amp; Pierre, 40 played his first set and the rest was history. His popularity grew, booking shows by the week, while still maintaining a party lifestyle, and a 40 hour-a-week job. Some might say he's burning the candle on both ends, he would tell you he's doing what he loves. He's played with and opened for some of electronic musics best dj's and producers including:&nbsp;<span style="font-family: inherit; font-size: 1em; line-height: 1.6; background-color: initial;">Chris Lake, Zed's Dead, Uberjak'd, Autoerotique, Trippy Turtle, Wave Racer, Leon Bolier, Marco V, Lange, Ape Drums, The Hi-Yahs, Juyen Sebulba, Paul Van Dyk, Ben Gold, Cyril Hahn, Ryan Hemsworth, Flosstradamus, The Disco Fries, Kennedy Jones, Paper Diamond, Supervision, Jaytech, Gareth Emery, The PartySquad, Sex Panther, DJ Muggs, Mayhem, Panty Raid, Devin The Dude, Datsik, Getter, GTA, Valentino Khan, Heroes x Villains, Cedric Gervais, Mightyfools, The Fat Rat, Bobby Duque, Torro Torro, James Egbert, Brillz, Dillon Francis, Clockwork, Baauer, Candyland, Schoolboy, Luminox, CRNKN, Aylen, Lazy Rich, Kids at the Bar, Crizzly, Mustard Pimp, and Paul Anthony</span>
