In the past couple of years, a lot of celebrities and athletes have come out of the woodwork to most people’s surprise as a DJ. Kristian Nairn of Game Of Thrones, Elijah Wood, Idris Elba, Ruby Rose, Shaquille O’Neal, and more have all donned headphones and stood behind the decks in the past – now you can add Usain Bolt to that list.
Usain St. Leo Bolt is a Jamaican sprinter and generally regarded as the fastest person ever on foot. He’s also been DJing since at least 2010. Videos of him performing exist on YouTube, with varying degrees of skill and spanning multiple trends and genres. In the beginning, he would spin reggae and a lot of Jamaican-themed music, showing off his heritage. Over time, he found EDM.
THUMP chronicled his time as a DJ from 2010 to the present. Check it out here.
