Satisfied Clients on DJ's Black American Voiceovers

Kat Skiles, Narrative Creative Agency CEO & Production Lead

"One of the best voice over artists I’ve ever worked with. The audio is superb in quality and DJ’s ability to read notes on tone and cadence are unmatched. He has excellent intuition about script flow and hung with me through a number of script changes with an awesome attitude and consistently prompt deliveries. You just don’t get service like this from other folks. DJ is amazing and I highly recommend."

Naomi K. Director of Operations

DJ's voice is smooth as buttah. He oozes confidence and warmth. Great to work with, takes direction and hits the timing with ease. I look forward to working with him again.

Gene Kamenez, Co-Founder & CEO, Uxcel

"Working with DJ was a fantastic experience! His excellent communication skills ensured a smooth collaboration, and the quality of the delivered voice-over for our video exceeded all expectations."

Walmart AV Team

"Perfect read for the project we were working on, DJ Dykes provided more than one take which helped tremendously as we did not have to go back and forth on inflection or pronunciation of some words. It was a fantastic and quick process working with him."


"DJ is absolutely amazing!! He is very professional in terms of script revision and of course voice recording. And his response is super fast. His expression is very clear so that there is no misunderstanding during the communication process. I’ll absolutely continue working with DJ and recommend him to my colleagues!"

Producer, National Ecological Observatory Network

"We had a pretty tricky foreign name in the script that took a few takes to get the pronunciation right. DJ was super accommodating and provided several different recordings till he nailed it! Great communication and a friendly guy. I think this is our 3rd or 4th time working together and will def hire him again!"

Brian Cameron, Senior Director of Product Strategy, New U Life

"DJ is by far and away the most professional and talented voice actor we’ve ever worked with at our company. We are a large company and have used a ton of people and DJ is head and shoulders above the rest. During our projects he’s communicated incredibly well on top delivering top notch quality content. And get this, every time we’ve done a project, he’s gotten our project on the first take. What that translates to is saved time, saves money, and the efficient use of resources. His personal touch and warm personality makes him so easy to work with. If it was kosher, I’d put my number here so you could chat with me and I could rave about our projects! Long story short, you won’t regret using DJ for your projects!"

Jonathan Klug, Co-Founder, Beluga Animation

"Really great. DJ is so friendly, responsive and professional. He nailed all the tones and all the emphases first time without any direction. You really get the impression that he took the time to understand what he was reading so the audience would too! Plus his voice is fabulous! Thanks again DJ."

Paolo, Operà Music

"Fast and professional. Very recommended, thank you!"

Mike Doyle Drive80 Studio
