From mega-events of thousands to intimate house parties, DJ/Producer Randy Bettis is among the most sought-after mixmasters in the dance-music industry. Recently voted DJ of the Year by JustCircuit subscribers, the buzz about his dancer-centered style continues to grow.
Bettis broke through the clutter in 2005 with back-to-back acclaimed performances at 3 of the largest dance parties in the world: Saint-at-Large New Years Day Event, The Black Party and the Heritage of Pride Pier Dance in New York City. Since that time, he has been a featured DJ at events and clubs across America and abroad.
For three years running, Randy’s GayDayS Tour has brought the spirit of the legendary celebration to cities nationwide. The GayDayS Tour has become an annual summer phenomenon, voted Circuit Tour of the Year by members of JustCircuit.com in each of its first 2 years. This past summer, Randy continued the magic, celebrating the release of his Party Groove: GayDays Volume 5 (Centaur Music) with another nationwide award-winning GayDayS Tour. He is proud to be a resident DJ for RSVP Vacations and the official DJ for the New York City Anti-Violence Project.
2008 saw the expansion of Bettis’s discography with the release of two new mixed compilations. In addition to Party Groove: GayDays Volume 5, Randy mixed In An Absolut World, the centerpiece of Absolut Vodka’s “Absolut Disco” gift pack.
Randy Bettis and composer/arranger David Boyd form the artistic force behind BetBoyz, who broke into the Billboard Top Ten for the first time in 2008 as part of the remix package of Ari Gold’s “Where the Music Takes You,” named Song of the Year by Logo. BetBoyz has created remixes for a number of other exciting artists such as Taylor Dayne, Jason Walker, Sarah Atereth, Ari Gold, Erin Hamilton, Andrea McCardle, and Brian Kent. Plans are already underway for original and remix productions with Inaya Day, Simone Denny, Amber Dirks and more.
Having played in some of New York’s most legendary clubs (Limelight, Sound Factory, Stereo), Randy can be heard frequently at clubs such as Splash in New York, Pavilion in Fire Island Pines, Town DanceBoutique in DC, Pure in Philadelphia and Steele in Fort Lauderdale.
Randy produces a weekly mixshow that can be heard Monday evenings & Saturday nights on G.I.R.L. (GayInternetRadioLive.com).
