MaddJazz has been honing his innovative style Since 1996 at the age of 14. At first he started off DJing house, basement and garage parties but within a few years he was already DJing at raves, loft parties and clubs. Influenced by these early raves as well as his start in the turntablism scene where he won or placed in numerous DJ Battles including the Chicago DMC Heats, MaddJazz blends his favorite House, Techno, Rave, Hip Hop, Bmore, Jersey Club, Ghetto, Juke, and Latin elements in the attempt to find inventive ways to showcase the emergent Chicago sound.

in 2007 Maddjazz played an important role in forming the DJ / Production crew Ghetto Division. By 2010 his debut solo EP titled 'Mind Of A MaddMan' was released under the Ghetto Division Records label which gained support and recognition Internationally. MaddJazz has made raves and clubs bang across the Midwest, as well as WMC and SXSW. Recently, MaddJazz brought his sounds to Belgium, France, Germany, Mexico, Poland, Puerto Rico, Spain and has collaborated with and remixed a list of well-respected individuals.

In 2013 MaddJazz was invited to compete in the Red Bull Thre3style Chicago Qualifier where he was runner-up. Although he didn't win, MaddJazz still had a strong performance and made a statement that he is one of the best in Chicago.
