New Jersey born DJ Dnial started developing an ear for music and a feel for rhythm at a young age. His tastes expanded and his interest in music went from leisure to hobby as he first got behind a set of turntables during college in Delaware. 

In no time, Dean became Dnial, with a relentless approach to master the craft that he quickly grew passionate for. Campus parties became club guest spots, and in no time Dnial was establishing residencies and opportunities to sharpen his techniques alongside legends like Rated R, Doc B, and Jazzy Jeff. Refined skills and a growing reputation allotted Dnial a chance to expand beyond his Delaware locale into a Mecca of elite DJ talent, in Atlantic City, Philadelphia, and into the huge party scene of Ocean City Maryland.
