Hailing from Appleton, Wisconsin and growing up on mostly rock and hip hop, DJ Hooraa discovered the world of EDM after returning from a military deployment in 2010. It was then, that he was inspired by the likes of Hardwell, Skrillex, Avicii, Dada Life, Armin Van Buuren, Bad Boy Bill, and my others.
After being invited to an open deck night in 2014 and experiencing the music culture, Hooraa began spinning at Appleton’s OB’s Brau Haus. Since then, he has held residences at Third Base Sports Bar, Mixer’s Lounge, Four Seasons Bar and Banquet Hall and played in Florida, and Dallas, Texas. Winter Warmer, Go Ham 3, Bass Harvest 2, Imaginarium, and Even Furthur, are just some of the festivals Hooraa has been a part of.
This head of EDM of the international Pure Truth DJs has opened-up for the likes of Figure, Downlink, Dieselboy, Midnight Tyrannosaurus, and Ray Volpe. His worldwide Ravers United Mixshow with DJ Hooraa may be heard every Saturday from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. CST on Pure Truth Radio.
In 2018 DJ Hooraa was the first to receive the CaJoKai Entertainment Business Conference (CEBC) Midwest Rising EDM DJ of the year award.
DJ Hooraa continues to be an inspiration to many, as he helps to diversify the Pure Truth DJs, Pure Truth Radio, and the CaJoKai Entertainment Business Conference, which is held in Dallas, TX every year. This year, he finds himself digging deeper into production and hopes to release some tracks he has been working on.
