So what's your story, in 100 words or less? I spent my early years in Chicago where I formed my love for house, juke and freestyle. When I was 18 I moved to Miami Beach where I fell in love with Miami Bass culture and started DJing electro bass and IDM. Meanwhile I honed my craft of production and turntablism as well as formally studying music business and marketing strategies. I traveled back to the Midwest and was a part of several hip hop groups and crossover indie bands and started remixing high-profile artists. While on tour I visited San Francisco, and a few months later I was living here, now with a new hustle, a new company, and a new palette of sounds.
