"To be a DJ is an art that requires the balanced use & amount of music, technology & psichology, 3 of my favourite likings"
I come from the hip-hop & acid-jazz scenes. In
1995, at the age of 15, i meet the Veneno Night Club in Barcelona, discovering the jazzdance,
tropicalia, the rare grooves & funk music, as new styles like acid-jazz, trip-hop,
jungle. Obsessed by these sounds, i began to visit that club almost everyday
and at the same time, i started to work in anything for buy
black & groovy music compulsively till 1999, when i began to organize some
underground parties (Groove
X-Perience, Last Vibes Of the Year, Voodoo Club), mixing these sounds under a
british concept (jazzdance, funk, rare grooves, latin, brazil,
jazzy hip-hop, soulful house, jungle-jazzstep). During that period, i
collaborated with some local hip-hop crews as turntablist,
making concerts around my country and in the south of France.
