It started when I was a child... I found some choons by Adam Freeland, The Chemical Brothers, Two Bad Mice, Oakenfold, Dub Pistols and the like. I was the kid who built speakers out of scrap components people were throwing away. By the time I got to high school people knew they could find me in the back of the cafeteria during lunch with a pair of speakers I had stashed away in my locker. Wandering Ann Arbor one night (as I was prone to do in the summer) I came across a group of people playing house and tech house. They approached me and the next thing I knew I was part of the student group known as MEDMA. (Michigan Electronic Dance Music Association) Having just turned 16 I was the youngest member to ever be accepted. I found myself practicing on a pair of cdj's in the basement of the student group's president.
By the time I returned to school the next year I had already played a slew of UofM frat parties. I would expand my party repertoire to include country ragers, barnyard bashes, house parties, and warehouse parties. While parties are my specialty I also took up more fiscally rewarding work at weddings, bars, grad parties and such. In time I grew tired of being the human jukebox and decided that I wasn't in it for the money.
Around the time I graduated high school I would go out to Jackson MI to play at art gala event called District 7. There I would meet nthogen for the first time. A few weeks after we would run into one another in Ann Arbor. Not long after that we were broadcasting b2b sets and working towards something bigger and better.
