Ricky Sixx (Chicago, IL) - Live Video Mixing
Born and raised in the greater Los Angeles area, DJ Ricky Sixx was exposed to a plethora of different varieties and genres of music (raised on the post-punk, punk, and industrial genres of the '70's and '80's while being a child of the '90's). Now, in Chicago, IL, Ricky Sixx brings you music from all over the world.
Since making his first official club debut at Play Dance Bar in August 2012, his unique style for music has broadened, incorporating a large assortment of variety; ranging from house and dance in the US, to electro-industrial and Eurodance, to Asian remixes and rock mixes, incorporating a wide assortment of genres of electronic dance music and beyond, including remixed music videos to give a visual ambiance along with the audio experience.
It wasn’t until 2013 when Ricky garnered his first official residency at TSC (a social club based in Nashville). The following month, he was invited to host a two-hour radio mixshow for CARDIOfm, based out of Louisville, KY, which ran for almost two years. Following the same flow, he later began doing mixshows for DanceMixUSA.com on Friday nights, along with three other powerhouse DJ’s from the Music City.
2016 also marked his return to his roots: Los Angeles and the Inland Empire. While in town, he made a debut at Hunters; a Palm Springs hot-spot for dancing, owned by the same Hunters that is in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.
Currently, Ricky is based out of Chicago and has become a traveling DJ, making frequent guest appearances at The Lookout in San Francisco, The Port Bar in Oakland, and The Endup in San Francisco, and holds many radio shows on various international stations.
