SOME BIOGRAPHY ON RENE HEWITT
Helping to start one of the first New York dj record pools, the International Disco Record Center, with Eddie Rivera (President), Rene Hewitt landed his next dj job and stayed at New York's famous "Inferno" for four years. During his days at the Inferno, he dj'd at New York clubs such as: Starship, Illusions, Bubbles, Club X, and Ice Palace 57 to name as few, as well as many of the top music industry parties. For many years he was a regular guest dj on WBLS-FM's weekend night dance parties. In conjunction with I.D.R.C. and KISS-FM, Rene also dj'd for the radio station's summer weekend outdoors street concerts throughout New York City for several years. Then, KISS-FM and WKTU-FM's midnight dance parties also requested Rene as one of their dj's. After some time, Rene opened his own dj record pool, Associated Promotions.
During this time he had residency at the Warehouse on the upper west side of New York as well as the legendary, 96 West for five years until it closed. It was here that he was approached by one of the publisher from the international "Michael's Thing" Magazine and was offered a job as editor for his own page, "The Music Box". It featured reviews of record and artist interviews each month. Because of this, promoter "Mike Stone" of "Bonds" and "Studio 54" asked Rene to guest dj at Studio 54. He has also dj'd at "One Hot Spot", "Side Street", "Club Exodus", "The Warehouse", and promoted JoeyBoy Promotions and Barefoot Boyz Productions New York.
Rene's talents continued and was booked to dj in Washington D.C. for Pride '98 at, "The Edge". Mike Stone who also promoted, "Vinyl", and Charles Jackson, promoter of "Track's" and "Sound Factory Bar", offered Rene to dj house and classics music at their international club, "The Warehouse" in the Bronx New York and still spins there as a guest. In addition, Rene asked to d.j. live on WNYU-FM's BPM in 1999 and he was booked by Beat Management to spin on New Year's Eve of 1999, at "Club Kaos" in Springfield Massachusetts. Rene has spinned with noted d.j.'s, Andre Collins (The Warehouse), Ken Terry, Kenny Carpenter, Danny Krivit (Body & Soul), E-Man (Bang The Party), The Tin Room (Residency), Louie Lou (Excalibur), Club Noi, Float, and Busker Brown to name a few. John Davis of the Body&Soul fame had him spin classics at his weekly party "Legends". Rene had reached his all-time dream and asked to produce two house records to be released on Prime Groove Records, USA. He also reviewed Kult Records entire record catalogue (300) and has finished a mixed compilation for the label to be released by the end of 2003.
