DJ Morse Code
Join us this Saturday for live music by DJ Morse Code!
Growing up in San Francisco in the 90’s, Nathaniel Morse was captivated by the diversity and quality of the burgeoning local DJ scene. Witnessing DMC and ITF battles for the first time and subsequently learning the history of hip-hop and djing, he became obsessed with mastering the craft from then on. After getting the opportunity to open for one of his childhood heroes DJ Premier, he decided it was time to pursue DJing as a full time career. Upon releasing a string of classic mixes that earned acclaim from DJ Jazzy Jeff and others, Morse then set his sights on Los Angeles. It was DJ AM who encouraged him to make the move and worked closely to help get him established in LA. Since then he has cemented himself in the local scene, maneuvering easily between Hollywood clubs and the increasingly eclectic parties on the East side and Downtown. He is a master of true open format DJing, having immersed himself in many styles of music over the years, from dance music to hip-hop to disco to rock to pop and much more. It is his impeccable ear and technical skill that has earned him international acclaim and the respect of many reputable figures in the DJ world.
With frequent dates on the road in addition to his LA residencies, Morse stays busy. In LA you can find Morse DJing at venues such as Adults Only, The Study, The Dime and 82. He has guest DJ’ed numerous times at the legendary Do-Over party in Los Angeles, Miami, and Portland. His notoriety has brought him to 1Oak in NY, The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas, and Studio Paris in Chicago. In 2010, he won Red Bull’s first United States “3style” DJ battle in LA. In 2014 he was awarded “Best DJ in LA” by the Sun Times, who subsequently also awarded him “Best DJ in America” in 2015.
On the production side, Morse’s disco and downtempo project with (Thee) Mike B, POOLS, had a double vinyl album release on the Razor-N-Tape label out of NYC in 2015, entitled “Innertubes” which has garnered support from the likes of Disclosure, DJ Spinna, Bicep, and DJ Cam among others. They have more music on the way soon, and Morse has also been hard at work on new solo material set to release in 2017.
With a firm belief that you have to be a nut to get into the entertainment business and that a serious love for what you do is essential to longevity, Morse Code’s lifelong journey as a music junkie has prepared him for everything along the way. It is clear that the best is yet to come…
