Brought up on hip hop.New to DJing. Old Skool EDM fan. I was a hard core raver in Tampa back in the 90. My first exposure to EDM was back in Tampa Bay when I first moved to Tampa at a teen club in Brandon called OFF limits. . Tracks like James Brown is dead,dominator,out of space, and go speed racer. First time I heard it I was like wow this is incredible. I started hitting Tampa night clubs like the Krush in downtown Tampa where mostly hip hop and booty music was being played.

In 2001 after many arrests, probation and house arrest I was finally forced into early retirement by HCSO and the FDLE. I ended up with a 10 year prison sentence. I came home in early 2009 with a large list of things I wanted to do with my life. Djing was one of them. I realize I my never play a big club or event. I dont care I look at it as a passion. Things were different when I came home. I went to the clubs I use to go to and they no longer played the music I partied to. It was a different scene bottle service,dress codes and hip hop clubs.. I use to be able to go out every night of the week and have a choice of which clubs I wanted to attend that played my music. Now its had to find a club that plays breaks at least one night a week. So now I don't go out unless its a planned event to see DJs that are in town.
I learned a trade on my own while I was inside. About three weeks or so after I came home I was offered a job making decent money in the keys and jumped at it and I have been living in the keys ever since.
Being home now for over a three years I am comfortable and have most of the things in life I want. I met a wonderful women and her amazing son and both have really been a blessing. I wanted to start djing but did not know where to begin. I had no records no decks. I do have a fairly large digital music collection. So I did some research and bought an entry level controller and read as much as I could. I loved it. I could not stop. I quickly out grew my first controller and wanted to spin vinyl. But with limited space for a record collection. I decided to buy a Numark NS7 which is about the closest you are going to get to vinyl in the digital world.
