About Me

Carolina Sound Machine started off 13 years ago.  As a seventh grader, I started DJing my school dances with two standard home cd players (one single disc and the other a 5 disc changer), a set of speakers from the pawn shop, and a 3 channel mixer from RadioShack.  It wasn’t much, but it was enough to get people dancing.  My name was DJ Carat.

 

From there, I continued to DJ my school dances and build experience.  Once in high school, it was time for me to look for a job.  Instead of looking for your typical high school job, I looked through the phone book for disc jockeys around the area.  Sound Technique caught my eye.  They had a huge ad so I thought I would call and see if they needed any help.  The owner, Keith Richardson, said he would give me a shot.  It was like a tryout.  The DJ gig went flawlessly, and Keith began hiring me for more gigs.  Not only was I working a job I absolutely loved, I was also gaining valuable experience.  Keith taught me the basics to being a DJ, how to treat your clients, how to act, etc.  I worked for Keith for 8 years.  He booked me for 10 year old birthday parties, high school proms/homecomings/sock hops, college dances, weddings, wedding anniversaries, and much more.  I wouldn’t be the DJ I am today without all of the valuable experience I learned from Keith.  Thanks Keith!  I stopped working for Sound Technique when I moved away after college.

 

Now I have started my own DJ company named Carolina Sound Machine! My DJ name is DJ Whiteshadow.

Over the years I have gained valuable experience.  I am sure I can make your next party memorable.
