New York, United States
I began collecting records in 1987….mostly 80’s new wave and freestyle. Picked up my first pair of turntables in 1989. The bands that have influenced my style of music are New Order, Depeche Mode, The Cure, U2, Blondie, and Alphaville. Believe it or not, those gay freestyle records got me into breaks. Then came the era of Acid House. My current musical taste is an infusion of all the shit I listened to growing up in the 80’s and early 90’s.
