Born, and raised in the great city of Chicago, I started playing around with audio samples, and making cassettes for friends in Florida. We used to build skits, play our favorite songs, mix sound effects together etc. It was a time before cellphones, email, and facebook and a way to melt distances between friends. Later on in 1998, I met a DJ by the name of "Gemini" who introduced me to vinyl, and mixing music. I continued listening, making mix tapes, and collecting records well into the 90s when I got my first set of real turntables and mixer in 1996. I experimented throughout the 90s until I got a job at a local cable company running the public access station Channel 4 that served over 100,000 subscribers in the Chicago-land area. I used to play music during breaks of shows produced by local talent. After receiving fantastic feedback from the masses I figured I had a talent for mixing music. 1999 I attended and graduated from the Illinois Center for Broadcasting as my career seemed to be heading in that direction. I produced hundreds of shows "The Basement Sessions Live" and started posting them on Myspace and Internet as it was developing. I spread many of my mixes throughout South America, Canada, and Europe by placing them on public FTP sites, bot-serving them on IRC, and bulletin board systems. It was fun to meet people that tracked me down and have heard my mixes. During the middle to late 2000s, I held residencies at The Zoo, Zentra Lounge, Tini Martini, Champs Sports Bar, Bottom Lounge, Winchester Club. I've played in well over a hundred venues as a guest DJ and MC working with some of Chicagoland's best talent and hustling promoters. Today, while my career sadly has not gone anywhere near broadcasting, my house-music heart still beats loudly and proudly. I still produce weekly shows each more technically embellished than the last. I try to make every show special than the last. I produce all my own content using internet clippings, memes, and photoshop. Flyers are produced for every show, and no mix is ever the same. Today in 2015 I still produce mixes, work with various producers, and align myself with the amazing Chicago House Music Community. It's been a family to me for all these years. The people within the community help me make Chicago home. They are the reason why I'm still here. The people that listen in, say hello, thank me for my mixes/music, and generally give me constructive feedback is why I continue to rock the decks. While I try to use the latest in cutting edge technology, every show I produce is NEVER synced, completely improvised, no set lists, completely random, and I try to keep talking to a minimum. I want the music to present itself in the smoothest form possible. I strive for the perfect mix every time, yet I never am satisfied. My goal is your enjoyment, and the spread of Chicago house to the masses. Thank you for taking the time to check out my profile, listen to my mixes, and PLEASE feel free to download my tunes. I do this for you, I do this for me, I do this for Chicago House Music. I love you all, thanks for being you, and thanks for any additional promotion you provide. Without my fans and followers, I am truly nothing. For this I'm humble.
