Been making beats for 4 years and DJin for 7 years when I was 14 years old. My homies Quarah and Desertion from Siege Crew were at my yard to visit my brother, and they heard jungle playing in my room. So Quarah said hes got turntables at his place, to come check it and try it out. In 2006 i heard dubstep and that was the energy that inspired me to make beats too , but of course Siege Kru was a huge inspiration as well. we had sessions at Q's yard almost every day until he moved away from my ends.
