Archangel started spinning in 1992 in the US Midwest, almost exclusively in raves and underground parties. He started to make the transition to club circuit while in University, at which point he was picked up by "By Association" agency and hired to work on game music soundtracks for a developing MMORPG company.
By this time, Archangel had enough local exposure to get steady local gigs and residencies in the town where he went to school along with occasional traveling gigs. His reputation for smooth and sexy deep house along with a respected flair for old school "true" disco was getting around.
In 2002, Archangel moved to Japan and became a resident DJ at Club Asia's NEO Lounge in Shibuya. This notoriety translated into him being a sought-after private party DJ for some of Tokyo's elite, as well as a hired music shopper for other deep house DJs in the region. Other DJs, club personnel, and club-goers alike agreed upon his impeccable music selection and silky transitions.
Hardcore club scenesters declared that it was always easy to tell his sets apart from all others just by the sound. (The expression commonly heard when he played a new venue was "今日は、めザらしくいい。”, meaning 'the music today is unusually good'.)
In late 2004, Archangel was asked to work on music for radio stations and independent movies in Japan. Since spinning is his interest more than production, he agreed only to requests, and has never marketed himself in this way.
Nevertheless, in 2005, he was commissioned to work on a US movie production after turning down offers for residencies in Seoul and Macau.
Archangel has returned to the US, both to be closer to the production of the movie project and to complete his graduate education (which is now complete). He has appeared on Mix the Vibe radio from the UK as well as numerous club and event appearances since coming back to the US.
Google has ranked him as the number one hit for "DJ Archangel" searches for almost two decades, and his new website has just now gone up. He is an officer and admin of the Deep House Experts group on Facebook where he helps artists, labels, and promoters try to network together in the interest of deep house music.
