I am a DJ, turntablist, remixer, music producer, and visual artist. I first touched the turntables as a breakdancer at 11 years old, and in 1986 became the 1st DJ to mix for commercial radio in Spokane, Washington – at just 14 years old. As a turntablist, I won the 1993 Inland Northwest Battle of the DJ’s and began mixing with Tobin Costen on Spokane’s then only all rap show that same year. The following year I began mixing for music legend Nasty-Nes on Seattle’s KCMU Rap Attack until retiring from music in the mid-90’s. However, I picked up the needles in 2020 to reunite with Nasty-Nes for KFOX Nightbeat where I can be heard mixing every Sunday night from 9-11pm on RainierAvenueRadio.world. In 2020, I became the 1st Spokane DJ to mix on “Sway In The Morning” – the world’s #1 Hip-Hop radio show. My mixes consistently rank in the top 10 on Mixcloud’s Global charts – even hitting #1 on multiple charts – and after working with former Eazy E artist, Tairrie B, on her recent album, “Feminenergy,” I became her DJ/Remixer.
If you want to learn the art of mixing, I am more than happy to share my techniques and experiences in this craft where you’re only limited by your imagination!
My latest mix reached #1 on multiple Mixcloud charts worldwide:
No. 1 on the Global Mash Up chart,
No. 1 on the Global Old School Hip Hop chart,
No. 1 on Germany’s Hip Hop chart,
No. 1 on Austria’s Hip Hop chart,
No. 1 on France’s Hip Hop chart!
I also hit No. 4 on the Global RnB Music chart and No. 4 on Romania’s Hip Hop chart!
