playing music in the south of France on the Rooftop Les Jardin Suspendus







playing "Hot Music" usually caused chaos.


Remixing for Sade really made the bell ring.


My first remix in 1989, done at Power Play Recording Studio in L.I.C. New York.



 Productions landed me my first travel Gig to London, England to produce and remix songs for Dave Lee's label Republic (AKA Joey Negro).



and making beats, living in the basement in Astoria, New York and it was on!

 


 

  Working part time at Power Play Recording Studio in L.I.C. New York. Assistant engineering sessions like Eric B & Rakim "Follow The Leader", meeting KRS-1, producing "Love's Gonna Get'cha",
 

studying recording techniques,






 

Working at Vinylmania Record Shop in N.Y.C. Larry Levan would hang out in the store in his pajamas.

  House Music all over the walls of the store, the streets, the clubs, cars.

The FIRST record I made in1988. Its a medley. 4 track reel 2 reel and editing with the razor blade patterns that I would make on a drum machine mixed with an accapella or a portion of another song, then do another mix, splice them together and make a smooth transition. I gave the medley a title
 “Something Special” I did not do the other side of the record, side B. I took the subway to the Rock and Soul record shop in Manhattan to buy it. ;-)

Breakdancing, handball...



The first cassette he gave me. He has ears of gold. Cesar Rodriguez (Dj-losdos).
We would borrow speakers from Robert Clivillés and rock parties.
2nd Ave and 27th...Spin Fierce crew...
Timmy Regisford lived close by.

Mixed by Cesar by Pal Joey on Mixcloud

My first Amplifier with pre-amp. Bought 1982, and used for parties and home studio. Still working, still using it. Any songs made in my home studio were heard through this amp. It came in kit form as well.






My first DJ Mixer.




Borrowing records from everyone in College was a great way to get them to come to the parties.


"I Remember…My old stomping grounds - Central Islip - New York. Parties at the Rec Center. Breakdancing, handball... Who had the biggest box? The loudest? I hooked a turntable into a box (Boombox) and did my first scratch. "Lets Dance To The Drummers Beat". I started making pause button tapes. Mixed tapes from Amityville with breaks being cut up, I was hooked. Blasting the music in the house, the candy dish fell off the speaker, fell to the ground, broke and I got my ass wooped.

Marantz Superscope. My first boombox. I hooked a turntable into it and recorded my first scratch.
