Biography:
As a young teenager, my deejay career began in the mid 1980’s, during the growth of the Chicago House and Detroit Techno movements. As a multi-instrumentalist (bass, guitar and trumpet) from an early age, I have always been passionate about listening to and discovering great music, such as the Funk, Disco, Fusion Jazz and Soul music released in the 1970’s. Needless to say, when I discovered the new sounds coming out of Chicago and, my hometown, Detroit, via radio shows mixed by Charles "The Electrifying Mojo" Johnson and Jeff Mills, it completely blew me away. This was not only attributed to the music’s infectious beats, but also the role of the deejay in the underground dance music scene. I wanted to become involved and knew that becoming a deejay was the best role for my participation.

Through the mid 1990’s, I was an active deejay under a different moniker. I loved every moment of the experience, and successfully played at various clubs, parties and functions. Furthermore, several of my mixes were played on a radio show, “Billy T in the DMZ”, and a TV dance show, “Contempo”, distributed via WGPR in the Detroit area.

In the mid 1990’s, I felt the need to focus more on educational and career goals, in addition to other musical interests. Therefore, in spite of the necessity, I regrettably discontinued to deejay with the intention of returning later in life, which transpired in early 2012. The primary reason for my return was because I missed the music that inspired me to deejay many years ago and finding it, in a world where commercialization has corrupted the dance music scene, proved to be difficult without prudent effort. Also, I wanted to share music with others that I enjoy and that they would not otherwise hear from mainstream sources.

With that said, I hope you enjoy the music that I offer to share and always keep your ears open for more!
