Beatnick's love affair with music began at a young age with the heavy rotation of his parents' disco records (breaking their record player) and staying up late on weekends to listen in on DJ mix shows in grade school. Hearing the call of music, Beatnick would sneak out to attend underground parties, fascinated by DJ Mixtape's by Rob One (R.I.P.) & DJ Drez. DJ's ability to create a vibe and control the people's emotions facinated Beatnick. His lifelong love for music translated into a deep passion for collecting vinyl and sharing his love with others through DJ'ing. His style exudes all forms of soul music. A musical buffet of Hip-Hip, Reggae, House Midtempo & Soul make up his distinct sound.
