Bio

"Funk the Antpile" originates from my existing production company 912 Music Co which was established in Brunswick, GA in 1998. Although going through a plethora of MC's, DJ's, Musicians, and supporters 912 Music was originally founded by Charlie Johnson and Wade Rozen. At that time I had no idea about what would eventually become the driving force of my life. I didn't know how to rap. I didn't know how to spin. I did know how to play the saxophone and tuba but that wasn't very hip-hop so the journey began. Wade worked with me and pushed me and told me I was good, although I know I really wasn't. We practiced on the most ancient belt-driven turntables. For anyone else it might have been a nightmare but for me it was just the motivation I needed to get me going. As my skills started to get better we began to diversify and added members to 912 Music. We added Mark,guitarist, and the Paxton, bassist, now we had a complete setup with Wade on the drums and turntables and me on the vocals. We were really on to something when the walls came tumbling down. We all ended up going our separate ways and at that point I had to start again from nothing. They owned all of the equipment so I was left with nothing. No house. No band. No equipment. I moved back home and started over with just a pen and a piece of paper. After everything cooled off me and Wade got cool again and he brought his drums over and we'd jam out but it just wasn't what it was. I had the bug now and I knew I had to progress on it. So I saved up and moved out. I hustled hard night and day and after I got caught up I was able to purchase my first piece of equipment, the Boss DR-202. From there I purchased my second piece of equipment, the Boss DR-5. Now I was officially in the production game. I worked and worked until I started to get it and when I got it I didn't stop making beats for years! Now, with the beats down I still wanted to fulfill my passion for spinning which had started to develop before the original falling out. I managed to scrape up enough money to purchase my first set of turntables in late '99. Since then I've been trying to figure out a way to mix my tracks into conventional mainstream tracks efficiently. In those days that was a very long drawn out process. Unfortunately, getting your music pressed to wax on a torn shoe string budget isn't really an option. So for all these years I've just kept spinning, producing, and writing. I've built a recording studio, and executive produced one off the press album "BlockStars Vol. 1."
Now back in Denver with new drive, determination, skill, experience and technology I'm not just here to be "just another DJ." I'm here to provide you with a memorable experience that you'll be dying to see again and telling your friends about for years! Watch out world cause "HERE I COME!"
