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.
