It was during the golden era of hip hop in the late 80’s when I copped my first tapes and records. Thanks to my friends in school and my elder brother I got into the records of EPMD, Biz Markie, N.W.A., Public Enemy, Eric B. & Rakim and many more. The hip hop scene in Germany at that time was quite small and I felt like I belong to a minority.

But anyway, I kept doing my thing and started emceeing in 1992 with my school friends from the “Enemy Crew”. Thanks to Zack Gramatic and Evil God for taking me into the crew.

 

A few years later I got into the DJ-ing when I saw the highly skilled Turntablists doing magnificent things at the DMC-Championships. If you saw e.g. Chad Jackson’s and Cash Money’s Routine at that time you'd know what I mean. At that time I was doing my first mixes and scratches on the 1s and 2s, I ran into this guy B-BASE.

He held up a recording workshop in a youth centre at that time, so we had a chance to record our songs in a really good quality. Until then our “studio” was a boom box with a built-in mic. B-BASE produced some of our songs and I remember that day during a studio session, where he chopped and looped up a sample and I was like: “Damn, I love what he’s doin’. That’s what I was lookin’ for all of my life.” Sounds cheesy right? But anyway, I started to look for gear for my own studio and finally I got my first AKAI S2000. A few months later my first SP1200 arrived! I was on top of the world. In 1999 my emceeing career came to an end. But I will never stop makin’ music. From then till now it’s all about authentic hip hop in its purest form!

If you need that neck snapping sound in your mixdown I can help you out. Just send me your audio files and let’s work on your new bangers.

No frills Boom Bap 24/7. The main ingredients are my SP 1200 next to some other nice vintage gear. Need vocals? Spit that fire into my Neumann U89i or the AKG C414.

In these days of video tutorials it may seem like there is no need to hire a DJ who’s giving you some lessons. But if you are stuck I can give you first aid in mixing and scratching at a good price.

Tired of watching artists on stage who just press play on their laptops? Me too! Improve your live shows with a real DJ on the decks who can also make your backup mc useless. Say hoooo!
