As a dedicated entertainer, Andorian "Beatific" Ramsey has been moving and entertaining crowds since he was 10 years old. Although he was born in the early 90's, his roots in music date back to the "80's Funk era" seeing his grandfather and uncles ( Zapp and Roger ) perform and entertain. As he developed, Beatific grew into the philosophy that everyone is connected through music– regardless of age, race, gender, or creed. This is the mindset that led him eventually to become the "World's most Versatile DJ".

A few notable figures for which he has rocked the ones and twos include the first woman U.S. Vice-President, Kamala Harris, the Mark Twain Prize winner Dave Chappelle, and Japanese contemporary artist, Takashi Murakami.

“I'm my own worst critic so I consistently work on my mixes and blends to ensure I always bring something new and impressive to my shows. Simply put, if you don't evolve you won't last.” says Beatific.

In the climate of COVID-19 Beatific ensured he would never stop providing his service to the public and began his virtual takeover.
