High #INRGI (enərjē) is what you get from Dan “Dilemma” Thomas whether it’s in his production, musicianship or DJing. Cultivating his craft at the legendary Sigma Sound Studios in Philadelphia, Dilemma has worked as a producer with artists like Meek Mill, Black Thought, Bizzle, Ray J, Migos, and Jazmine Sullivan on her GRAMMY-nominated project “Reality Show.” His recent work on “Man on Fire” with Def Jam artist, Earl St. Clair charted on Billboard’s Spotify Viral 50 chart.

His keen ear for music is what puts him at the top of the list for innovative performance DJ artists as he incorporates not only his own production, but samples and his Fl!ps remixes from deep in his bag. From touring with R&B crooner Aaron Camper to ushering in the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia at the Democratic Governors Association reception, he’s been in high demand.
