Salt Lake City- Las Vegas, United States
Jonathon Drink Alderink
Raised in downtown Las Vegas, Drink was influenced by Hip-Hop music from the young age of 5 years old soon after taking up graffiti writing and B-boying. At 15 years old, he formed a Hip-Hop crew of dj’s, breakers, mc’s and graff writers. Drink started collecting various records including jazz, samba, funk & soul, and hip hop and began producing one-of-a-kind Hip-Hop beats combining the groups’ diverse artistic styles with beats featuring samples of artists ranging from James Brown to Rage Against the Machine. During the late 1990’s Drink took on an interest in house, techno, and most of all, UK garage & drum and bass. After years of djing and doing promotions for various club events / raves in & around the Las Vegas strip, and getting into clubs well before the age of 18, Drink inevitably took on dj’ing at events along side various Producers & dj’s such as:Skrillex, Von D, Dieselboy, 12th planet, 6blocc, ak 1200, emu,havocNdeed and many more.
