DJ Eric Forbes

Eric Forbes started DJing at age 18 in a friend’s garage. At first the young DJ spun hip-hop, because he only had a limited selection of records to practice with, but once Forbes had got the hang of the tables he started buying his own vinyl, branching into house and breakbeats. After working a few small house parties, Forbes met some promoters for the growing early ‘90s rave scene in the San Francisco Bay Area, and had the opportunity to open up huge local parties. When he was 21-years old, Forbes moved to Las Vegas where the music scene was just starting to take shape. He began spinning at underground events, getting his name out. Soon Forbes was traveling out of town for gigs a few times a month. In June of ‘98 Forbes was hired at Studio 54 as a barback where he met some key players in the nightlife industry. After letting his managers hear his mix tape, Forbes was booked to spin at Eden, Las Vegas’ first Industry night. Today Forbes remains great friends with the people who gave him his big Vegas break and credits them with making his career as a DJ what it is today.
