dj finesse the mixtape king
Starting out in the early 90s as a party DJ and selling mixtapes to all my friends at school, it was then I realized that people need music and I was going to be the one to provide it for them. Not just the regular shit you hear on the radio, but mixed, scratched, and twisted so that your listening to something completly different than what you would hear on the radio.
How it all started....
After being grounded for getting suspended from school, and on pretty much house arrest, I was locked in my basement with my tv and phone taken away. So with nothing to occupy my time i decided to pick up an old Rob Base and DJ Easy Rock record and start scratching it on my old wobbley turntable table. As time went on I got another wobbley turntable and a crappy radioshack mixer for like $50 and started practicing.
As time went on, I started making mixes with the my dads old funk records and mashing them up with whatever new music i had. I started rocking them in my walkman at school and dubbing copies for my friends. As the word spread, I was getting requests to make personal mixtapes for people on a regular basis for $10 bucks a tape.
After that, I gained the confidence to start djing our school dances and parties. It became a good living and it was guarenteed that any party I was playing was going to be HOT. I even was playing some nightclubs, even though I was under age.
When I turned 18, with my name now establised, I started focusing larger parties in clubs as well as still rocking teen jams. At this point I was selling mixtapes by the boxes and it was hard to keep up. That is when the technology came available to burn CDs! It was on from there....
Now you have the convenience to download my mixes right to your phone in a matter of minutes! So im going to keep putting them out and making sure everyone has the hottest mixes to rock to. So im counting on you to show me love by following, liking, and sharing my mixes on your social media to keep the ball rolling!
