After messing up his dad’s turntable, he received his first one and started collecting records.

During the 90′s Hip Hop Golden Era, he soon started to share the stage with the noteworthy greats of the Hip Hop & R&B french scene, and international artists such as Buckshot LeFonque, The Roots, Das Efx, just to name a few.
