The Vinyl Countdown Team

Experienced. Insanely Creative. Highly Skilled.

First and foremost

We’re professional DJs who take our work very seriously.

We might live in Maine but don’t let that fool you. We can deliver a big city club experience if that’s what you’re looking for. Vinyl Countdown was founded by DJ Rew and James Read with the sole focus of redefining what people should expect from a Maine DJ service. Vinyl Countdown is one part an insanely creative, highly skilled and experienced DJ from Kansas City and one part a cool sounding Brit from London. We’re owner operated so the people you talk to are the people you’ll be working with. No brokers here. Just premier DJs. Our goal is to be best and most recommended DJs in Maine.


DJ Rew

DJ Rew is a turntablist and premier DJ with over 15 years of club and party rocking experience. He has performed at a vast array of venues from the State Theatre here in Portland Maine to the Bellagio Resort in Las Vegas. He has shared the stage with many heroes of the DJ world including Grand Master Flash, Q-Bert, A-Trak, The X-Men, House Shoes, DJ Craze and many others. He specializes in blending and scratching all genres of music for any occasion and works tirelessly with venues/clients to shape the day/evening/night to fit whatever mood the client/club has requested.  He’s one of the best Maine DJs. No one brings the heat like Rew.


James Read

James aka “The Limey” – originally from London, moved to Maine in 1997 with his turntables and vinyl in tow. An aspiring DJ with a creative services background, James is responsible for the day-to-day operations of Vinyl Countdown. Favorites genres are the 80s, reggae and French electronic music.
