DJ BlackHat (Jamar Smith) has been curating sounds for crowds in Charlotte for the last 5+ years. He started within the Hip-Hop/R&B community, and soon found a passion for playing different genres including House, Disco, Funk, Latin, Jazz, Top 40 and many more based on what inspires him in the moment. Born in Indianapolis, Indiana, Jamar was inspired at age of 10 to follow in his late uncle’s footsteps who was a well-known Vinyl DJ. Traveling to Nashville for college, he began networking with many of the well-known Radio & Event DJs on the campus of Tennessee State University. He credits most of his success to his appreciation of finding unique locations that deliver a great sound provided by local talent. Which also included festivals like the infamous Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.
