DJ Sound Off:
Stealth Bomber

Dj Stealth Bomber (Richard Santana) has been spinning music for over 10 years. Growing up in Brentwood, New York only blocks away from legendary artists EPMD & Keith Murray , he was exposed to music at a young age. At the age of 13, he began break dancing. His father was a dj as well. He would dig into his fathers crates for classic b-boy records and transfer them to cassette. This eventually lead to his passion to be behind the turntables. Stealth started out by spinning and break dancing at local house parties and high school events. He soon became the resident dj for pep rallies and dances. He also began making mix tapes to circulate amongst his peers. In his junior year, he landed a gig at the local hot spot ClubWaldos where he later became the resident dj. It was not until he reached college, that he began to focus on music at another level. Stealth received a degree in audio engineering and began recording sessions at major label recording artist Eric Sermons studio. He also ran his own project studio from his apartment. During this time, Stealth was also spinning at many universities throughout NY including SUNY Cortland, SUNY New Paltz, SUNY Old Westbury, SUNY Buffalo and RPI in Albany. This publicity landed him many gigs in the NYC club circuit.

Currently you can catch Dj Stealth Bomber touring worldwide with J Records/Polo Grounds recording artist Nina Sky. When he is not on the road, catch him spinning at numerous NYC hot spots. He has spun for the likes of Jay-Z, P. Diddy, Andre Harrell & Amourie Stoudamire. This has gained him much national as well as international exposure. Not only performing on stage, he has rocked parties in places like Africa, Spain, Qatar and several countries in Europe (Croatia, Macedonia, Austria, Albania & Kosovo). On a national level, Stealth has touched cities all across the states such as Minneapolis, Phoenix, Chicago, and Miami to name a few. In addition his mix tape portfolio, which includes the 60 Minute Drill series & the Jack Sparrow series, are some of the most creative mix tapes out.

Run This Town (SB Remix)

Although at heart he is a fan of hip-hop, when it comes to rocking a party anything goes. Playing everything from hip-hop, r&b, house, reggae, rock and classics ,his creative dj style allows him to adjust to any crowd assuring that everyone will have a good time. Even though he has lived his dream of spinning all over the world, Stealth Bomber has only just begun. With many places left to see and many goals not yet reached, his ambition and love for music will not let him stop.
