William Buchanan, better known by his stage name Yahru El Guru Dj (YEGDJ) was born in Walnut Creek, California. He is a House, Heavy Bass, Reggae, and Dub-Stepping Dj, who has shared stages and Dj booths with, The Wailers, Mad Professor, Collie Buds, DJ Peanut Butter Wolf, and Israel Vibration, to name a few.
YEG.DJ began his career as a professional Dj in 2006 by landing himself a residency at Martini Ranch Denver, one of Denver’s Co. busiest downtown clubs. Six successful months later, YEG.DJ, was offered to open up for Mad Professor, A disciple of Lee “Scratch” Perry and a leading producers in dub reggae’s second generation. Now inspired by one of the greatest and teamed up with Denver’s leading Reggae promoter, Reggaemovement.com, YEGDJ, earned himself a Friday night Residency at Kazmos night club, the longest running Reggae and Electronic Music Bar in Denver.
A Thursday night residency at Club101, the largest club in Boulder.Co., gave YEG.DJ the opportunity to experiment with crossing Reggae, Hip-hop, and Dub to a live crowd. He has also already shared the stage with international artist Sly and Robbie,B Side Players, Dr Israel at The Famous Fox Theater and Pop Reggae band, UB40.
Now geared with a host of fresh ideas and new sounds, YEG.DJ, has been in the studio with Arketech Music working on new Riddims, Remixes, Dubs and Dubstep .
YEG.DJ’s Remix Project is an eruption of styles and genres including Techno, Reggae, Salsa, Dancehall, Moombahton, Reggae and Soca. His beat matching, blending, and original mixing flair give the remixes an extremely high quotient of danceability and great sound quality.

From the first track Sizzla – Psalms 121 vs The Dutch Rudder – Don’t Make Me Wait, in collaboration with Raatib, YEG.DJ shows his ease of style and familiarity with the genre. This Tecno/Reggae track flows like water down a duck’s back. Its uplifting and tranquilizing at the same time!
YEG.DJ’s sets typically encompass a number of genres but are always tailored to suit the event, while his tantalizing tidbits of turntable skill will leave jaws hanging. Just listen to the sophisticatedly underplayed sound and pumping bass on, Jus Deelax And FiveAm – This Is My Fucking Flat Belly (Raatib & YEG.DJ Overtime Riddim RMX).
This Californian-born DJ’s running nights, performances with hot musicians, and his own dope productions, will certainly be pricking the ears of all, on the EDM music scene. And releases like this Remixes project from his http://www.beats4djsrecords.com, are sure to win over mad new fans with a taste for exotic dance-floor beats.
How can anybody resist the Dancehall influenced track, Rescue Me (Johannes Heil Trueschool) Raatib & YEG.DJ Bounce and Wave Riddim RMX)? The interesting thing about the YEG.DJ remixes is, that while they’re energetic and highly danceable, they’re never overpowering, staying cool and almost elegant throughout.
I have heard many DJ’s handle these crossover genres, and almost all have raw, grimy and overpowering sound mixes that are very hard on the ear. On the contrary, YEG.DJ’s remixes are characteristically elegant and off the chain.
Even YEG.DJ’s soca-styled remix, Kenny Ground – Balkalera vs Drummer Boy Riddim (Raatib & YEG.DJ RMX) is a showcase of his domination of power. Every sound is perfect within the aural spectrum, guaranteeing perfect listenability, over and above the danceability.
All in all, YEG.DJ is rocking the beats. So, pull up a chair, or make your way to the booth. Either way, your man Yahru El Guru Dj (YEG.DJ) means business.
