Veteran turntablist and producer Raphael Valentino continues to move crowds from coast to coast, playing alongside the biggest artists on the globe. Sparking his career at a young age while still a freshman in high school, Raphael Valentino passionately transformed this hobby into a career after his parents gifted him a pair of turntables, a few albums on vinyl, and a mixer. When it comes to music and technology, RV is exceptionally versed in both. Raphael received his first big break in 2008 when KTU was broadcasting live from a nightclub that he was working. Raphael Valentino currently holds residencies in clubs across the globe and can be heard on KTU and other syndicated shows as well.

Born and raised in Queens, New York, StacieSpins, is a DJ and radio personality. Stacie grew up in a strict West Indian household; one in which her mother, the typical Caribbean parent, persistently encouraged her to become a lawyer or a doctor. However, Stacie’s dreams took her into the City College of New York (CCNY) where she successfully majored in Public Relations and Advertising.
With little knowledge of how to get into the entertainment industry, StacieSpins, as she is now referred to, felt that the closest she could get to where she wanted to be was to do something in Entertainment PR. On recall is the fact that, during her Junior year at college, Stacie landed a Publicity PR internship at Hot97. It was so instrumental in the decision-making process for her that, after interning at HOT97 for a number of weeks, Stacie felt it in her heart that she was meant to be behind the microphone, front, and center, rather than function behind the scenes.
Her internship having ended, StacieSpins started her career at iHeartMedia a few short weeks after her graduation. Presently, Stacie can be heard nights on Party105.3 or mixing at a club or event in the city!
