2Nite: What’s your real name? Play in HD: Ed Alexis. 2Nite: De­scribe Play in HD? Play in HD: He’s a cool, calm, hope­fully hum­ble… with a great sense of hu­mour.

2Nite: What mo­ti­vated you to be­come a DJ, and how long have you been rock­ing turnta­bles?

Play in HD: I grew up in a mu­sic-lov­ing house­hold. And I mean all kinds of mu­sic. I didn’t ac­tu­ally plan on be­com­ing a DJ, but I fooled around with my fa­ther and brother's equip­ment when­ever they went out to work. It was my brother who en­cour­aged me to give it a shot. The rest is his­tory. I've been at it pro­fes­sion­ally for about 15 years. 2Nite: Have you come as far as you can go?

Play in HD: Ab­so­lutely not! Not even close. I learn some­thing new ev­ery day and I’m con­stantly try­ing to im­prove on my craft. As they say, the sky’s the limit and I’m reach­ing for it with a pas­sion! 2Nite: If not a DJ, what would be your next pick as a ca­reer? Play in HD: I'd prob­a­bly own a video gam­ing store. Or I’d be work­ing for some­one who owns one.

2Nite: DJ’s are al­ways sur­rounded by groupies? Fic­tion or fact, and how do you han­dle that?

Play in HD: It hap­pens, and hey, it’s flat­ter­ing. Who doesn’t like hav­ing ladies around? The best part is know­ing they like what you do enough to stick around. 2Nite: What's your favorite meal? Play in HD: It must in­clude a slice of lasagna, mac ‘n’ cheese, potato pie and chicken wings. 2Nite: If you could hook up with a celebrity who would it be? Play in HD: That’s easy: Ri­hanna! 2Nite: Which mu­si­cians have most in­spired you? Play in HD: Pop­caan, Mavado, Al­ka­line and Red Bull World Cham­pion Dee­jay Puffy. 2Nite: What’s your favorite mu­sic? Play in HD: Pop (edm), Hip Hop and Dance­hall. 2Nite: What does your fu­ture look like?

Play in HD: In five years I'd like to be tour­ing the world, hav­ing cap­tured the ti­tle as the best all-round DJ. I'd also like to help young DJs achieve their goals via work­shops or even a school for DJs. 2Nite: Most peo­ple don’t know that you’re… Play in HD: A pretty sim­ple guy, very ap­proach­able with zero ego. 2Nite: Short and fast or hard and long? Play in HD: Thick and sweet! 2Nite: Do you have any crazy DJ fan­tasies? Play in HD: Who doesn’t? My crazy DJ fan­tasy is to be a house DJ for one of the most pop­u­lar U.S. night­clubs, tour­ing while signed to a ma­jor Amer­i­can la­bel.

You've ei­ther heard him on the ra­dio, or danced to his club­stomp­ing mixes. This ver­sa­tile DJ is known to turn it up loud on the ones and twos but who re­ally is Play in HD? 2Nite took some time this week to get the skinny live from the man him­self.
