Watch: That Deaf DJ Aka Robbie Wilde

Written by Kiel Egging on April 6, 2012

An American DJ who only has 20 per cent hearing in one ear is starting to gain attention outside of his homeland.

DJ Robbie Wilde – who goes by the name of That Deaf DJ – is able to mix music by counting beats and responding to sonic vibrations.

The 26-year-old started spinning turntables at his father’s restaurant when he was a child and hasn’t let a lack of hearing get in the way of his creativity and ambitions.

“The response from everybody gave me chills through my spine”, he told news.com.au.

“It’s something I wanted to do after that.”

That Deaf DJ has also made waves with a cover of Duck Sauce’s Barbara Streisand and has more than 1400 ‘likes’ on his Facebook artist page.
