In Business Since
The name Undercover is on a very short list of entertainment industry influences in Antigua that have maintained the highest standards while remaining relevant through the rapidly changing times of the music business. Nearly 30 years ago when you could only achieve a collection of your favourite music by recording a cassette to today’s ease of building a playlist from a seamless computer download, DJ Undercover, whose real name is Dorian Carty, has not lost a beat. He fell in love with the art while attending high school, the Princess Margaret Secondary, and found that he had a real ear for beats and mixing.He is a talented product of the old school. He was raised from the foundation of turntables, literally scratching his way to fame as he was the first to introduce that particular skill live on radio in Antigua and across the Eastern Caribbean. Undercover was among the first club DJ to switch into Radio, becoming a feature on GEM Radio, SUN FM, and more recently HitzFM and Vybz FM. He was able to transition between Abracadabra, as its first DJ, to the Zone Night Club. To do both was a test of his versatility and no one else has done it that well. He was the go to DJ in the 90’s when the club scene was probably at its very peak in Antigua with Club Ribbit and the Web Night club drawing hundreds on a weekend. Always willing to share, he takes credit for teaching the fundamentals to the likes of DJ No Limit, EZ P, Charlie and Tuffice, who is now based in Miami. He was a judge in the Heineken Green Synergy DJ competition. Undercover has opened for shows featuring major international acts to include Beenie Man, Cisquo of Dru Hill fame, Machel Montano, Diana King, Beres Hammond, Technotronix of the international hit Pump up the Jam and Born Jamericans.Still very relevant, still in the game, even more versatile, DJ Undercover.
