Cyberfish started mixing back in 1995 on a pair of crappy belt driven no-names purchased at a garage sale. Soon after he moved on to a pair of Vestax from which he learned the fundamentals of beat matching, mixing, scratching, and went from there to evolve his sound and style. Initially Cyberfish played some of the heaviest bangin Chicago house he could find. He always chose the most aggressive and angry sounding tracks available because he is a firm believer in high energy start to finish. Cyberfish DJ'd lightly around the scene in Rochster NY in a few of the clubs, Freakazoid (R.I.P.), Marcella, Gotham, and several parties for about 4 years before he left Rochester in 2000 to head for Florida. While in Florida his notoriety for being a hard banging high energy artist gained him bookings with some large venues playing with some of the EMD industry's greatest legends including: Rick West, Sander Van Doorn, Fedde le Grand, and Bad Boy Bill. Cyberfish has played events in venues ranging from large1000+ people gatherings to small 25 person intimate audiences in clubs like Limelite and Dragon Room. In the last five years Cyberfish has gone all digital to reduce his equipment size and media size, which facilitates easier mobility and travel is far easier. Granted he feels that there is a loss of tactile connection with some of the mixing found in vinyl, but with new tools that have become available within digital equipment he has found even more avenues to evolve and enhance his sound. His passion for electronic music grows each day as he watches, observes, and studies the artists who inspire him. Building off of the techniques he learned many years ago, Cyberfish has grown to be one of the most talented DJs today that can rock any party any time with tracks that groove and bass that will certainly draw out your "O" face..

Whats In My Record Bag
Everything I can get my hands on since the inception of vinyl. I have around 15,000 tracks from back in the 80's right up to now.
Every single artist out there regardless of genre... all music have merit that deserves to be heard... but the man who got me into the industry was bad boy bill. His DMC performances and his early sound with House Connection and Bangin the Box drove me right in. Nothing beats stompin to some slamming beats.
