Been DJing for over 10 years and still going. I decided on making beats just because I've been playing other peoples beats for so long, maybe I can get a chance at other DJ's playing my shit. Who Knows?
Always DJ live. Local clubs out in Va Beach, Richmond, and occasionally out in NYC.
My brother became a DJ way before me, and I just ended up following his musical footsteps. As far as making beats, listening to almost everybody on records, to people I know, and to whatever's on the radio influenced me.
AKAI Pro MPC 2000XL, Vestax 07 Pro, Technic 1200, and a hand me down keyboard.
Hope you like it!
