DJP is an American DJ and turntablist from Springfield, Missouri. He is best known as one of the pioneers of "mash-ups," a style of blending different genres and eras of music that became popular in the early 2000s.

In 1999 DJP competed in and won the midwest regional DMC Championships in Lawrence, Kansas and went on to compete at the 1999 DMC U.S. Finals held at San Francisco's Palace Of Fine Arts. That year, he also toured with MTV's Campus Invasion Tour with Garbage and Lit.

In 2001, DJP collaborated with DJ Z-Trip from Phoenix, Arizona to create the "Uneasy Listening, Vol. 1" mix CD, which paired classic and ‘80s rock tracks with hiphop staples. Though its original pressing was limited to 1000 promotional-only copies, within a year the mix had been widely copied and shared across the internet, and became something of a cult classic for its pioneering of the "mashup" style of combining songs from different genres and eras. "Uneasy Listening, Vol. 1" eventually appearing on many critics' year-end top ten lists in the likes of Rolling Stone, Spin Magazine, Entertainment Weekly, URB, the Los Angeles Times and New York Times.

In 2003, DJP toured U.S. as with the band 311 from Omaha, Nebraska as their supporting DJ.

In 2005 DJP relocated to Las Vegas to be a resident DJ at the MGM Grand Casino playing its Studio 54 and Tabu Ultra Lounge venues. Along with DJ AM, DJP was named one of the city's top Hip-Hop DJ by City Life Magazine. In 2007, DJP signed a two-year contract with the Palms Casino playing its Club Moon, Ghost Bar and Playboy Club.

During that time he was also inducted into the American Hip Hop group Rock Steady Crew and collaborated with breakdance pioneer Mr. Freeze. He toured the U.S. with DJ Jazzy Jeff and Gangstarr's DJ Premier as part of a tour sponsored by Toyota's Scion car company.

In 2011, DJP appeared as a contestant on the second season of the BET reality show "Master of the Mix" sponsored by Smirnoff Vodka.[3] DJP distinguished himself by using vinyl records for many of the challenge events, while his competitors used mostly computer-based digital formats. DJP won the first place title of "Master of the Mix," earning a $250,000 price and a year contract with Smirnoff where he was featured at promotional appearances.

Since 2008, DJP has been based back in his hometown of Springfield, and continues to travel all over the United States.

Sativa Prophets are an American music and art group from Oklahoma City. Banding and expanding together in late 2014, the Prophets have grown into a full octane live hip hop.
