From Bangin’ the Boards to Bangin’ the Hype Beats, NBA Star Keeps the Party Going in Second Career

“Just keep bangin’” is what many people might’ve said then, and what they might be saying now. Most Miami Heat fans who watched Rony Seikaly play in the late ’80s and early ’90s weren’t aware that while their star center was banging the boards, he was also harboring a passion far removed from the basketball court.
As he battled for rebounds against the likes of Dennis Rodman and Hakeem Olajuwon, and as the ball thumped up and down the hardwood floor, Seikaly heard the unmistakable boomp-boomp-boomp of house and techno music in his head. He dreamed of someday stepping off the court and into the DJ booth.
“I started DJing when I was 14 years old,” said Seikaly, who will spin Tuesday night at Wall in South Beach as part of Miami Music Week. “I always had a DJ setup in my house, because it was something that I always loved to do. And I was always into house music. When I first came here from Europe, that’s all we listened to.”
