Being that I was born in the very late 1960's I had the wonderful pleasure of growing up during the 70's and 80's when turntablists everywhere were on the verge of making there record players into actual musical instruments. By the time I was 14 years of age I received my first mixer and turntables and my older sisters (Those wonderful women that got me started) handed over all of their vinyl to me... of course it was comprised mostly of 45's. For those of you who only know cassette tapes and CD's these were the small records with the big hole in the middle... Ask your parents they probably have some buried somewhere.
Anyway, by the time I was 21 years of age I was working in a bar in Deer Park called Starz, This was one of the best alternative lifestyle spots in LI New York...It then changed its name to Voodoo when the industrial sound revolution began... This place was great. Due to the fact that it was located in an industrial area they were able to take over the warehouse next door and with the new space and the new promoters it was the birth of Caffeine.
I then joined the NAVY during Operation Desert Storm to fight for my American way of life and freedoms. I got to preform for and all different types of people and experience all different styles of music. When I came back to NY I immediately wanted to put what I had learned to good use and started doing weekly spots at all of the Gay spots on LI. The NY underground scene was up and running full force and I had to be right in the center of it. Having a weekly NYC International night at the legendary China club was also an experience that I will treasure always.
Through out my Rave career I have been fortunate enough to have shared the stage with the likes of Frankie Bones, Jam Master J (sleep in peace),DJ Venom, Commander Tom, Space Girl (AKA Elektra), and a host of others. I consider myself lucky and blessed that God has chosen to bestow upon me a gift that brings happiness to others. So enjoy the music, Visit my favorite links such as Ravers Only, and remember Raving is NOT a Crime
