With over 14 years of DJing under his belt, CeaseDays has continued to surpass expectations on and off of the turntables. In 2013 he was recruited to be a DJ and show host for UIC Radio in Chicago, and is still considered one of the most successful alum from the station. In 2016 he joined KRYC Rhythm 105.9FM where he was part of the "Street Party Mix", a weekend mix series with other DJs across the nation such as Richard Vission, DJ Prince Ice, & YellowClaw. CeaseDays can best be described as being diligent and persistent.
His experience in college radio has earned him national recognition as being a finalist for the Best Show Promotion for the Thumpin' Thursdays name. Guests on the show have included top stars which he keeps a close relation with such as Taylor Bennett, King Louie, the Typical Cats, Alex Wiley, The Original Rick Ross, Vic Spencer, DJ Gant-Man, DJ Deeon, Boi Jeanius, Fancy Fux, Gettoblaster, DJ Metro, DJ Non-Stop (DMX’s DJ) and many more over its 6 year lifetime. A collection of events have been branded as Thumpin' Thursdays events, including (but not limited to) an Open Mic series for spoken word and hip hop artists to showcase themselves for fun, feedback and possibly some recognition.
As of 2017, he is the organizer of 'House of Sol', Chicago's only free outdoor festival highlighting the homegrown sound of Chicago House Music. House of Sol is part of the annual Fiesta Del Sol festival. Notable DJs on this bill have included Terry Hunter and Alan King of the Chosen Few, Ron Carroll, DJ Heather, Colette, Gettoblaster, KE (pka Kid Enigma), Ed Nine, DJ Clent, Traxman, DJ Deeon, Paul Johnson, Gene Farris, Iz & Diz, and many more.
CeaseDays could be heard across all parts of Chicago, whether it be DJing, on the radio, or hosting different events in the nightlife, educational or social justice field. As of 2017, he is part of a social club by the name of “Los Desvelados” (DSVLDS), who have been taking over the streets and radio stations of Chicago. In late 2019, CeaseDays was recruited by "La Mezcla" which is a collective of DJs from across the world whom each have radio programs and share a spotlight on their DIY network.
In 2020 , he co-founded "Dem Werkz Records", which can best be described as an appreciation to Chicago; representing everything that is Chicago HOUSE inspired. This was created with DSVLDS member Francisco "Syko" Hernandez. Both being born and raised in the Southside of Chicago, they decided it was time to form a label to express a sound created for Chicago Artists and by Chicago Artists.
As of 2021, he is a resident DJ and co-curator of "Tribe", a social creative collective of a body jacking, grooving, bass loving individuals, family and community linked by House Music and Culture.
