With constant praise, coveted jobs, and a budding public presence, DJ Suga Ray seems to be getting hotter by the minute.
Born in Jamaica, Raymond Chambers’ parents relocated to Florida when Ray was a toddler.
With a father who was a DJ in their native Jamaica, Ray was deeply influenced by the soulful and Caribbean-inspired sounds on the streets of Miami.
He attended North Miami Beach Senior High School and in 2000 left for New York to attend the School of Visual Arts.
His love for entertaining heightened, and Ray started spinning in his dorm room and began to notice a newfound passion and respect for his father’s treasured art form.
After securing a couple of local and university gigs, Ray found joy in learning how to mix and scratch and studied the turntablists of the 1990s hip-hop movement..
Through focus and determination, Ray sharpened his skills.
In 2002, Ray was hired by superstar Britney Spears to DJ a charity event in Cape Cod and was booked as an annual DJ for the singer’s summer camp for children.
In 2004, Ray was offered an opportunity to DJ for the after party for the prestigious Tribeca Film Festival and has been DJ for Mayor Bloomberg’s picnic for every year since that same year.
Local club gigs soon followed, and Ray began to develop a reputation around New York City’s entertainment, fashion and political elite.
