Phoenix, United States
I got started djing in 1995 spinning funky house and breaks I heard throughout the Midwest, East Coast and Baltimore and Philly Scenes. I was influenced by DJs like DJ Icey, John Kelly, Kelly Reverb and The Bassbin Twins and others that pioneered the Florida and West coast sounds. Throughout my years of playing everything from local club nights in Columbus, OH to large scale parties and festivals throughout the Midwest and Southeast, as well as producing my own events and parties with my crew Collective Intelligence, my love for the music grew. As my career grew, so did my style as I discovered the UK sounds of Nu Skool breaks from producers like Stanton Warriors and Freestylers. Again,bass heavy beats and high hat snaps and the incorporation of brass horns and vocal sampling that kept it fresh and also reminded me of my break dancing days!!!
