Music has been a place of inner peace and I hope you enjoy my sharing of it! Born and Raised in NYC and now in the ATL.
I have been mixing since I was 14 years old. As a young fella I can remember watching DJ Starski, Grandmaster Flash, Kool Herc, DJ The Red Alert to name a few hooking their equipment to the lamp poles in the parks in the South Bronx and Harlem it was on. The MCs were hyping or moving the crowd for the Deejays. When I moved from the Bronx to Queens, I joined the Gemini Crew and I was DJ Johnny Quick on the 1 and 2 with the cross fader. My Dad owned a night club in Brooklyn, so music was everywhere. As I got older and started going to the club scene in NYC there was one DJ that was such a technican and I often called him a Scientist the Legendary DJ Larry Levan famous for the Paradise Garage. He told a story when he mixed — depending on current events, highs and lows in the City. As a DJ we must feel the mode and pulse on the crowd and provide them with a theme…Thats enough of the old days. In my maturity I evolved to DJ Extra Mayo. I am no longer a professional DJ and sure not an Amateur…I guess I am just a retired DJ playing music…lol.But if duty ever calls me…I will be back in Prime Time Action…lol….
I hope you enjoy my many forms of pure music. Please add them to your playlist for work, driving or just needing to chill. Peace and God Bless!!!
