DJ Sleep Ez
Originally from Chesterfield, VA, Reginald Williams discovered his hunger for the turntables in 2003 after coming into the game in 2001. This hunger began after moving to Petersburg, VA and becoming affiliated with “Petersburg’s Unofficial Mayor DJ Foot”. After working with DJ Foot for a couple of years, Reginald’s ambition to learn the game grew. Now being on the tables and with his affiliation with ‘Foot’, DJ Sleep Ez (aka Sleep), an he officially joined the DJ coalition called the Footklan.
To enhance his ‘street credibility’, Sleep began to flood the streets of Central VA with club banging mixes and though there are many DJ’s affiliated with the Footklan, DJ Sleep Ez has also become the most highly recommended and requested. He has mastered the art of keeping the club live at many clubs such as: Godfather’s (Chesterfield), Panchos (Hopewell), Cotton Club 2.0 (Richmond), Bojangles (Richmond), Club 17 (Petersburg), Beaux Twenty (Petersburg), and definitely don’t forget The Regimental Club aka The NCO (Fort Lee). You can catch Sleep now, still grinding in the streets and doing events with the number one radio duo, previously known as “The BadBoyz of Power 92.1 Jamz”.
In July of 2008, Sleep signed with the ‘Coast 2 Coast Mixtape DJs’ Coalition’. After seeing another area in which his skills would again take him to another level within the game, Sleep became a co-founder of VACEG (Virginia Coalition Entertainment Group). In addition, he has also taken on many collaborations with founder and owner of Ainigriv Adorn, Arbriel Winfield. It is no doubt that with all of the power moves that this man is making in order to elevate within this ruthless game called the music industry; someone was going to need to have his back. This is where Sleep decided to get with Savion “Slain” Hayes of YD Entertainment as his management. While still building street creds and affiliations, Sleep has added new venues to his club bangers. These venues currently include: The Virginia House Of Comedy in Hopewell, VA on Wednesday s and Saturdays & it’s sister location in VA Beach, VA on Sundays; Club Fuego (Richmond, VA)-Tuesdays; he’s still turning out The Regimental Club a.k.a NCO (Fort Lee, VA)-Fridays. Each month he drops a new mix for the Footklan Radio mixtape series, along with his Ainigriv Radio mixtape series.
Also you can find DJ Sleep Ez broadcasting live on WRFE Radio with his radio show called SLEEPZ PEEPZ RADIO which broadcast each and every THURSDAY at 7pm to 9pm Eastern Standard Time!!!. Plus he collab with V. A. S. K. own artist DOE THE PAPERBOY. So it’s no secret that DJ Sleep Ez is not one to reckon with in the 804. From the mixtape mixes, to the live ‘get crunk’ crowds of the club, combined with his skills on the tables and his collaborations… if you don’t know about DJ SLEEP EZ by now, ‘you betta Google him
