He also makes a good amount of music in his in-house recording studio. Rasheed is well versed in multiple genres of music and uses a number of styles to mix and blend songs during a set. Rasheed tries to introduce new music by doing live remixes and mash-ups when appropriate. He has experience with radio, clubs, and private events. Some of Rasheed's most recently attended event locations have included Kimpton Tryon Park Hotel - Charlotte, NC, Sun City Lodge - Fort Mill, SC, Fields at Skycrest - Cleveland, NC, Medaloni Cellars - Lewisville, NC, Free Range Brewing - Charlotte, NC, SpringHill Suites by Marriott Charlotte Uptown - Charlotte, NC, McGill Rose Garden - Charlotte, NC, and many more! His number one goal is to take you and your guests on a musical journey that will make your event one to remember. This goal preparation begins when he meets the bride and groom or the group that hired him for an event. He is able to get a good feel for the type of energy they are looking for and the type of music and party they envision. He begins to prepare his thoughts for how he will control and move through the evening to ensure everyone is enjoying the journey.

Take a look at what others have said about Rasheed:

  • Split Second Sound was great to work with from the start. We chose the package that included the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. We chose DJ Rasheed and he did not disappoint. He was able to meet with us before the wedding and walk through our plans for the big day. He's very easy going and professional. He is engaging but not to the point where its too much. He definitely exceeded our expectations on our wedding day. Everyone had a blast and we were on the dance floor all night. I would highly recommend Rasheed from Split Second Sound.

    I definitely enjoyed Rasheed Owens as our DJ recently at the Callonwood Adult Spring Dance on May 2, 2015. He did a wonderful job of mixing up the tunes and also had very good interpersonal communication skills with all ages of dancers. He even got out there and showed us how to do a number of line dances. I would recommend using him at any future function we have.  Also, he was professionally dressed and represented Split Second Sound excellently. He was on time and very open to suggestions and tried to satisfy all the requests that he had from us.

    Split Second Sound was amazing to work with from the very beginning.  The moment we met with Steve and Rashaad, we knew we had nothing to worry about.  Our reception/party was in good hands.  All our our guests have called us and said they had an amazing time and that the music was perfect.  The only downfall was that we didn't plan for a longer reception, we could've danced all night. :)  The introductions and MC work was tremendous and memorable.
