With local celebrity bassist Dave Clark, co- founder of Taylor Made. After moving to Orlando, Ed was later christened "Special Ed" by local talk radio hero Drew Garabo, a nickname that stuck. Ed soon transitioned away from daily band practice in steamy warehouses to settle into a family suited life style. still desiring a musical outlet ,Ed immersed himself in the burgeoning Orlando dance music scene. before long his friend Keith Kreiner introduced him to 2 1200's, a mixer and a phat vinyl collection. soon Special Ed had tables of his own, records and not long after that he was moving crowds wherever he could find speakers and decks, around 92-94. later he made a name for himself by pioneering the groundbreaking FOUNDATION RADIO 96.9FM, underground pirate radio station in Orlando Florida. later signing to and releasing records on Kaleidoscope records, Florida's most recognizable label for dope electro and funky breaks, special ed was able to capitalize on his success, and he has enjoyed gigs all over central and north Florida. then moving to south Florida, the self titled home-of-the-motherfucking bass, and they were ill prepared for the pirate radio guru's blend of high energy electro breaks and higher energy live shows and dj sets. don't blink, or you might miss what this crowd pleasing over-the-top performer will do next;now in 2010 he is living back in his childhood home of Merritt island, Florida with the love of his life and partner-in-crime M. Fine(real name!), and to his surprise the kids with the systems are blasting funky breaks and dance music. will special ed attempt to conquer the space coast? or spend all of his time fishing? if you've seen his family fishing pictures. it's obvious ed has channeled his inner central Florida native"fisherman" self. ed is still in recovery from a "near death experience"(a C.V.A.) in 2009, now Ed has returned to music again to provide healing and self-comfort and in honor of that renewal on 03/07/2010 Ed released to the public a FREE preview here on Soundcloud.com. it's an exclusive advance track from his upcoming concept album "the Breakers Code". the track titled" "Breakdancers ready" epitomizes Ed's desire to produce dj friendly music, rooted in the older artistic expressions that made an impact on him at an early age. from the days of scoring a refrigerator box, tagging it, and blasting "Siberian Knights" through an old boom box, and trying to master the windmill until long after the street lights flickered on. to the days of special ed the family man, still passionate for music, and with something artistic left to say. please message Ed for bookings.
