Derrick Reeves, known as Hype or DJ So Hype, is an open format American DJ and producer of segway music. "Hype", meaning extravagant or intensive publicity or promotion., suits his personality and skill-set perfectly when talking about his craft. This is due to his well-known ability to work with any genre of music, or combination of multiple genres at one time, to produce dynamic and high energy music sets. In addition Hype is quite known by most in the industry for possessing one of the most critical skill-sets of being a professional DJ, which is the ability to read the crowd and change a performance on-the-fly in order to keep the energy of the event high. It is because of these two aspects that the name "Hype" became perfectly fitting. But no matter what you call him or whether or not you've ever seen him perform, one thing is for sure, when he's performing for you, you will surely know it. A triple threat of music talent, personality, and fashion sense Hype has become a member in a class of his own.
Hailing from Las Vegas, Nevada Hype has rightfully established himself in the most elite class of DJs, continuously and regularly playing all venues and events ever worth mentioning in this global mecca of nightlife alongside just about any major artist you can think of in today's pop culture. As the resident DJ since 2004 of some of Vegas' hottest clubs and lounges including Rum Jungle, Jet Nightclub & Koi Nightclub inside of the Planet Hollywood. Hype has also resided at Town Square since the Grand Opening in 2007 rocking out on some Friday & Saturday nights for Nu Sanctuary & Blue Martini. Additionally, Hype is known for frequently playing in the past other venues like Revolution, Gold Lounge, Foundation Room, Neche, and Chateau. As you can see (if you are familiar with any of the hotspots in Las Vegas Nightlife from the last 12 years to present) there isn't a place in the Las Vegas area that he hasn't blown the roof off.
Additionally, when he's not tearing it up in Sin City he also regularly jet-sets all the top entertainment meccas that this country has worth mentioning (LA, Dallas, Houston, San Francisco, Chicago, NYC, Miami). 2018 marks his twelfth year running with a continuous residency on the Las Vegas Strip. Hype can also be found heating up tours across the country with some of your favorite artists to date. But no matter where you see him it's guaranteed to be a night to remember, so come prepared. And as you can see there is a reason why so many of his peers call him "The Hardest Working Man In The Business" (averaging between 300 and 350 performances a year, due to performing multiple times daily throughout the Las Vegas Club & Community Scene).
DJ So Hype is currently accepting booking for all events, clubs, corporate, weddings, residences and more. Specializing in Pop, Hip-Hop, R&B/Soul, EDM, Trap, Rock, Old School, Gospel, Reggae and more.
