Before there was mp3(s) on heavy rotation, before there were immeasurable parties, before I had my first drink… I had a profound love of music. I am not famous to the mass of common denominators that scourge the earth, but I’m omnipotent in spirit of beats. Music has always been a magical place that I could go when the real world seemed excruciating. Music has always been a lover that continued to hug me when my soul was shattered. Each one of us has a rhythm and mine happens to be 4/ 4 on the floor. Before I was a dj, I was in love with music. Before I was a dancer, I was in love with music. Everything that I am is a Blessing, but one of the irrefutable building blocks of my overwhelming persona is my undeniable passion for harmonious sounds and beats. Though I grow older and wiser, there will always be an image of me at 7 years old with my pig tails flying in the wind, looking at the clouds, summertime in Chicago, listening to Thelonious Monk and having my a dad say in the background… “The piano solo is next, listen for it”.
F---- all other djs, artist, muso(s), if you wanna know where I am … I am in this moment. My head is always filled with music. This is who I am. There are NONE that can match MY fervor in life and music.
I now return you to your regularly scheduled program of life.
