Lounge -2009, Caramel Lounge-2008, Beauty Bar-2007-2008, V-Bar 2007-Present. Alpha Q, or DJ Lord Q, comes from a very rare group of DJ’s in Las Vegas who is prolific in the art of "Party Rocking" using 12 and 45 rpm vinyl records while embracing the new Digital DJ Era. He is also a part of the Turtablist Collective “High Definition” along with the much revered "First Lady of Hip Hop", Duwop Rose the Vinylist.


He describes himself as a “DJ and producer who plays an eclectic catalog of Feel Good Music. Hip Hop, Funk, Soul, Reggae, Disco...if you want to dance, I got you."

1997-2001: Early Career

Alpha Q found his love for turntables and drum machines at the age of 16. During high school, some friends, who were in a band, let him scratch on their record player during some downtime at practice. Soon after, he spent most of his free time painting, scratching records, and creating drum patterns using a Roland drum machine he bought from his neighbor.


Soon after graduation, he met Emcee Puro and began recruiting undiscovered talent to form a new hip hop collective. Alpha Q began making beats and DJing at local venues as part of a hip hop group known as Periodic Table(s); the group attained its name from their integration of most, if not all, the "elements" of hip hop culture.
