Need a gift for a gifted musician?
Over the years this artist has witnessed the progression of music first hand as it evolved in the 80's 90's and on while always dealing with an obsession for turntables that has been with him his whole life starting before he could walk with a little Fisher-Price portable record player that never left his side till he finally burned up the motor trying to scratch with a old lone ranger album after hearing Herbie Hancocks song rocket. he was obsessed! after breaking the second stylist on his parents record player and having to come clean that he had done it at the age of six. his fathers friend took him aside and informed him of the fact that those record players where not made for that and proceeded to show him the secret that would truly change his life from that day on! A sansui direct drive turntable and the slip mat!
he spent the next two decades working on traditional turntable skills first the scratch then transitions and mixing then by 1992 he was learning how to transform beats then came beat juggling and the art of the brake beats once he mastered the traditional art of the d.j. in came the og rave scene and after the first night in a strobe lighted warehouse witnessing what he thought as dj magic started trying to crack the code of the trans rave dj then he was introduced to digital programing and the learning began all over again!
after living with one of the singers of the so.cal hardcore band SICKLIFE from the late nineties to about 2004 he had enough of the party buses and rock star seen and started workin full time for the family and got his own pad. that was when he met his new roommate and great friend Mr. Johnny Mc Nasty of the still uncreated drum unit warning and world famous DUMB STEPPAZ who truly opened the world of digital production as his life came together and seemed as if he was set of course came the girl friend! after a 7 year roller coaster he jumped off the ride and is trying to get that magic groove back! with some luck and determination he will find his proper place at the round table but first he is sorting out some ISSUES" LOL
