Adrian is an independent DJ/Producer as well as a freelance production field mixer/recorder for documentaries, short films and ENG coverage. His venture into production sound started in 1999, where he assisted his older brother, Edwin with his student films as a boom operator. In 2005, Academy Award winning documentary filmmaker, Deborah Shaffer became interested in a poetry class in the Bronx that Adrian was an original and continuing member of. Her interest allowed him the opportunity to work with her on the feature film To Be Heard, a documentary about that class and three amazing poets that emerged from it. Since then, he has been contributing his skills and gaining experience on several feature documentaries, short films, events and promotional material, continuing to seek out more interesting and exciting projects.
As a DJ, Dooga aims to impress and has been working his craft since he purchased his first set of turntables in the summer of 2005. Since then, he has been expanding his play list, skill set and fan base, consistently impressing nightly skeptics and wallflowers with his solid mixing and well thought out song selection. All over New York City, he has performed at wild loft, house, and underground dance parties, benefits, fundraisers, weddings, bars, pubs, lounges and clubs. Recently, he has developed a relationship with Eye Productions and Bobbie Brown Cosmetics, producing custom upbeat mixes for their photo shoots intended at keeping everyone energized. In addition to DJ’ing, Dooga has been focusing on music production, teaching himself the use of various Apple based DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) programs and is currently working on remix-mixtape collaborations with NYC based DJ Gio Alex and local lyricists.
