Skinny Friedman




Splitting his time between New York and Philadelphia and with parties that run the gamut from 80′s funk gems to dubstep wobbles, Skinny Friedman’s trademark is his versatility.

After cutting his teeth in the St. Louis hip-hop scene in college, Skinny returned east in 2005 and started the Philadelphyinz party with high school buddy DJ Apt One. Starting at The Khyber and later moving to Medusa Lounge, Philadelphyinz is well into its sixth year. For the last two years, Skinny has teamed up with Sammy Bananas (Fools Gold/Telephoned) for The Players Club on alternate Wednesdays at Pianos in New York’s Lower East Side.

Skinny also travels frequently, picking up gigs in over 20 cities across the country, and sharing stages with Tittsworth, Das Racist, Wale, Juan Maclean, Cosmo Baker, Treasure Fingers, XXXChange and recent Maybach Music signee Stalley. He has also toured as rapper Izza Kizza’s DJ and put together mixes for Shade 45 Radio, Scion Radio, Discobelle and DJ Shadow’s Quanuum Projects label.

As a producer, Skinny’s talents are similarly varied.  He honed his chops as a vinyl-flipping producer of boom-bap hip-hop in college, but quickly diversified into house, Baltimore club, dubstep and UK funky as he explored new styles as a DJ. He was an early adopter of the quickly-growing hybrid genre known as moombahton. His tracks have seen support from Diplo, Sinden, Starkey, Nick Catchdubs, Dave Nada, N.A.S.A., DJ Ayres and Dillon Francis.
