Glide into the party and you’ll hear the pulsating sounds that will instantly make your entire body want to sway. Song after song you don’t lose the beat, or your consistent rhythm. No it’s not a coincidence, it’s DJ FiTTD sending you into an auditory explosion. Ryan ‘DJ FiTTD’ Washington was born and raised in Southfield, Michigan, a suburb of Motown, Detroit. From the tender age of 11 he knew that music was his true love when he started playing the trumpet. The influence of his stepfather supported his respect for music and included 15 years of classical training on the trumpet. This all led to eventually receiving an instrumental music scholarship to Kentucky State University. While in high school he started to DJ and knew that this was the road he wanted to travel. Debuting at age 15 as DJ MOMENT, a name derived from the adage, “living in the moment”, he began to perfect his new found craft. Although the moniker didn’t last long — DJ FiTTD evolved and was born.
