He goes by Diesel in the clubs. But because of his world-famous skills and presence on the basketball court, most of us know him as Shaquille O’Neal, NBA Hall of Famer and World Champion basketball player. And, not a lot of people know this, but he is also an EDM Hall of Famer – a DJ who jams with the best of them.

Diesel – most of us know him as Shaquille O’Neal, NBA Hall of Famer.

He performed at Denver’s own Temple Night Club at 1136 Broadway last Friday, and his majesty fit the place to a tee. If you haven’t been to this amazing club, when you do go you’re gonna get transformed and welcomed into a realm lit up like suns and stars, and with an awesome and sound system that made everything vibrate, and throb. I always feel like I’m in a spaceship ready to take off there.

Like I said, it was a fitting place for this artist. When you meet Shaq up close, all 7’1″ and well over 300 pounds of him, including two size-23 feet, you realize that he is a massive human being. His stature – physically and spiritually – had the whole club buzzing and dancing, vibing through driving beats.

I missed Shaq – um, Diesel, I mean – in Denver for Decadence in January 2019. But not this time.

I even got a fist bump, and jammed so hard after he took the stage.
