Born and raised in the greater Los Angeles area, DJ Ricky Sixx was exposed to a plethora of different varieties and genres of music (raised on the post-punk, punk, and industrial genres of the '70's and '80's while being a child of the '90's). Now, in Nashville, TN, Ricky Sixx brings you music from all over the world (pictures, right, with Nicky Romero, and DJing at Play Louisville).
It wasn’t until 2013 when Ricky garnered his first official residency at TSC (a social club based in Nashville). The following month, he was invited to host a two-hour radio mixshow for CARDIOfm, based out of Louisville, KY (2013 to present). Following the same flow, he later began doing mixshows for DanceMixUSA.com on Friday nights, along with three other powerhouse DJ’s from the Music City.
Since making his first official club debut at Play Dance Bar in August 2012, his unique style for music has broadened, incorporating a large assortment of variety; ranging from house and dance in the US, to electro-industrial and Eurodance, to Asian remixes and rock mixes, incorporating a wide assortment of genres of electronic dance music and beyond, including remixed music videos to give a visual ambiance along with the audio experience.
Starting in March 2015, Ricky has frequented the Winter Music Conference, helping conduct interviews with music producers, DJs, singers and divas for ClubPlanet.com and NexusRadio.fm. At WMC 2016, Ricky caught the ears of the crowd with his set for the Turn Table Masters Mash Up at Señor Frogs in South Beach. Being the opening DJ for the event, he set the mood for the crowd, as well as opened the night for some big-name DJ’s and singers (Klubjumpers; pictured left, Dark Intensity, Emii, Liz Scott,
Dominic King, DJ Sama). In 2018, during music week, he and his DJ mentor (DJ RonS), performed in a tag-team DJ set at Hunters in Wilton Manors, Florida; a Ft. Lauderdale suburb.
Also in 2015, Ricky made his way to the west coast, debuting in San Francisco at The Lookout, a second-story bar that overlooks quite a bit of the Castro district from its balcony, and has since been a frequent guest DJ. In 2016, his west-coast fever broadened with a debut at The Port Bar in Oakland (an industrial-atmospheric bar on the Broadway Strip) and at Shangrila at The Endup (an event held in San Franisco twice a month, showcasing his arsenal of the
hottest JPop and KPop mixes and hits).
2016 also marked his return to his roots: Los Angeles and the Inland Empire. While in town, he made a debut at Hunters; a Palm Springs hot-spot for dancing, owned by the same Hunters that is in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.
2017 held a prominent upswing. After more travel to the west coast, at a Shangrila event, he was asked to produce mixshows for Power 107.4 FM out of Miami, and Rhythm 105.9. Coinciding with these stations, he has garnered airtime on three of the stations run by Sobel Promotions, working with DJs from all over the world. He also began a weekly mix Thursday and Friday nights at Tribe (Nashville’s hottest video bar, and one of his home residencies). He has also been promoted in several magazine publications, including GLOSS Magazine (Year 13/December-January and Year 13/August) and Left, as well as being interviewed several times on-air with House Of Pride Radio. Venturing to Illinois, he made his debut at Mary's Attic, the second floor bar atop Hamburger Mary's.
2018 has also started with a bang, including Ricky Sixx making one more debut: Greg's Our Place in Indianapiolis, Indiana. This was the first time he had DJd in Indy since the closing of Talbott Street, three years prior. Upon that debut, he was also asked to submit mixshows to Sweet98.org, and Indy-based internet radio station.
Currently, Ricky is based out of Chicago and has become a traveling DJ, making frequent guest appearances at Greg's Our Place in Indianapolis, The Lookout in San Francisco, The Port Bar in Oakland, and Icon in Kenosha, WI. He also holds many radio shows on various international stations. His music video and remix video editing has allowed him to create videos for various major artists and fashion businesses, as well as independent artists.
