About DJ Era

DJ Era has emerged as a top spinner on the 1s and 2s in Atlanta, GA. A master at mixing music and people, he brings crowds to their feet through his song selections whatever the event, venue or occasion. Whether working a fashion show at Neiman Marcus, wowing party-goers into the night at a local club, or sharing the stage with recording artists performing in the U.S. and abroad, DJ Era always brings it. He’s deejayed at parties, concerts, events, clubs, colleges and universities in major U.S. cities including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Miami, Washington, D.C., New Orleans, Atlanta, Detroit, and more. Internationally, DJ Era and his turntables have entertained audiences in Germany (Kaiserslautern and Wiesbaden), Italy (Naples and Sicily), Greece (Crete), Spain (Roto), and Canada (Nova Scotia). He’s spun at listening parties, and ‘meet and greets,’ for recording artists including Sean Paul, Mary Mary and The Game; and he’s worked as a tour deejay for artists Monica, Lloyd, Sean Garrett, Yung Joc, Donnis, Bertell, K’La, and others. DJ Era’s also served as a house deejay for concerts and/or parties hosted by Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, Erykah Badu, Kevin Hart, Lupe Fiasco, Young Jeezy, Kendrick Lamar, Yo Gotti, Bobby Valentino, Raheem DeVaughn, and more. And he’s been a video host promoting talent and events for Gorilla Zoe, Soulja Boy, Gucci Mane, Keri Hilson and others. On the political scene, DJ Era’s talents have serviced events for Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed, Atlanta City Councilman Lamar Willis, and Senior Advisor for President Barack Obama, Valerie Jarrett. DJ Era and New Era Flagship are co-creators of the “Music Is My Life” artist showcase in Atlanta, which spotlights some of the hottest musical acts of today’s new generation. Together, they present an in-store showcase on the first Tuesday of every month premiering local Atlanta talented acts within all genres of music. Born Kevin Cox in Los Angeles, CA; DJ Era moved to Atlanta to attend Morehouse College in 2005. Hanging out at local college parties and clubs, he found his way to the deejay booth where he watched and learned the techniques of other DJs. Soon he began honing his skills and getting jobs deejaying at college events, house parties, clubs, car washes, whatever gigs he could land. Before too long, DJ Era was born. An internship at Interscope Records in Los Angeles taught Dj Era promotions, marketing, and A&R work. He also did promotions and assisted the program director at 93.5 KDAY, a local radio station in Los Angeles. In Atlanta, he was a street promoter for Disturbin Tha Peace (DTP), Ludracris’ label under Def Jam; and he worked as a college representative doing promotions for So So Def, Jermaine Dupri’s label. Since graduating cum laude with a B.A. in Business Administration from Morehouse College in 2009, DJ Era, a.k.a. Kevin Cox, has set out to raise his profile and reputation as a promising young deejay in Atlanta. He’s been featured in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, XXL Magazine (April 2012), the CW Network, on Hot 107.9 FM (WHTA) website - HotspotATL.com with the “20 Minute Workout” Mix, on WDKX 103.9 FM Radio in Rochester, NY; and ZACH 105.3 FM Radio in the U.K. (2012). DJ Era’s turntable talents garnered accolades in January 2012 when he was declared winner of the V-103 2012 Smirnoff Ice Master of the Mix Atlanta competition, following a heated battle on the 1s and 2s with local DJs decided by celebrity judges including Kid Capri and Amber Rose. Today, he is a familiar face on the local club and music entertainment scenes where his talents on the turntables are both respected and in demand. DJ Era works Ludacris’ annual “LudaDay Weekend” in Atlanta; he’s been featured on V-103 FM Radio “Frank Ski and Wanda Morning Show (January 2012),” guest DJ on “The 9’O’Clock Mixtape with Greg Street” on V-103 FM Radio (WVEE) in 2010, 2011, 2012; and DJ for The Source magazine cover release party in Atlanta (April 2012). In 2011, DJ Era joined platinum recording artist Yung Joc on a 12-day European tour where they entertained U.S. service men and women, and their families. “Music is my life,” says DJ Era. “I’m truly blessed to be living my dream.”

Adrian Peterson sponsors Nike, Castol back away from NFL star

Adrian Peterson has lost one of his most significant endorsement deals over child abuse charges, and he’s at risk of losing the other.

Nike (NKE) announced it was suspending his deal with the running back because of the charge that he injured his four-year old son while disciplining him.

And Castrol motor oil, a unit of BP (BP), said late Tuesday that it was dropping him altogether.

"In light of recent events, Castrol has decided to end our relationship with Adrian Peterson," Paul Giblett, a spokesman for the company said Tuesday.

Peterson is the star of the NFL’s Minnesota Vikings and has defended himself against the allegations he injured his 4-year-old son. He said Monday he is “not a perfect parent, but I am, without a doubt, not a child abuser.”

The Vikings announced early Wednesday that Peterson will not play until his legal issues are resolved. It was another reversal for the the team — after he missed the season opener when the charges were announced last week, the Vikings had welcomed Peterson back to practice and said he would be eligible to play this Sunday.

Unlike Ray Rice, the former Baltimore Ravens running back who was suspended when a video showed him knocking out his fiancee, Peterson has yet to be suspended. He will collect nearly $700,000 a week in salary despite not playing.

Castrol used Peterson in commercials for its Edge performance oil product and on social media. Many recent social media posts of his likeness had been pulled down, and the commercials were no longer available on YouTube.

Nike did not explain what it meant by suspending Peterson’s contract — whether or not he is owed any payments from the shoe and sports equipment maker that would not be paid, or appears in any current advertisements that would be pulled.

The company has by far the most extensive range of endorsements in the industry, with $4.7 billion in deals on its books. It is no stranger to its athletes facing criminal charges and scandals and has a reputation for sticking by them when other sponsors flee.

It never dropped its deal with basketball star Kobe Bryant when he was charged with sexual assault, charges that were eventually dropped. It also stayed with Tiger Woods, the star golfer who admitted to marital infidelity, when many other sponsors dropped him.

And even though Nike dropped quarterback Michael Vick when he went to prison on dog-fighting charges, it was was one of the first to pick up again once he was released.

On Monday, the Radisson hotel chain suspended its sponsorship of the Vikings and said it would “evaluate the facts and circumstances.”
