“I started djing in 1979 @ the age of 9 yrs old with my cousin John (R.I.P.), in Manhattan, New York City. He was a bartender / busboy, working for Studio 54 discotheque / nightclub. One night @ 54, no one was able to spin & my cousin asked if I could play tunes for a while. They said yes. I was extremely nervous, but once I got started playing tunes, everything went well. Helped out there with the resident DJ’s: Richie Kaczor & Nicky Siano til 1982, when my cousin passed away. From there on, I decided to continue as a DJ & make my cousin proud.
I spun at the following venues / discotheques / nightclubs / bars: Studio 54 (Manhattan – The Original), Rock-A-Bee’s, Gazander’s, Centrum Hall, A. C. Club, La Village Cafe, T.K.O.’s, Cairo’s / My Sister’s House / Club 720, Cafe Kallisto, Merecedez, Crobar, Marianna’s & Excaliber. Also spun at various venues for rave / underground parties between 1991 through 2002. Stopped spinning at those parties in early 2002, after the drugs were becoming the focus, instead of the music & I let them go entirely. It’s 2019 now.
Update: I am part of Viral-Mental Records’ street team for promotion of the label, which is based in Bristol, UK. Also, I am a member of Sucka Free DNB Crew, based in Sacramento, CA.” Phobik
