Bio

Already a fan of "tha funk", young Whizlam's musical world was turned upside down in 1978 when he saw the rock band KISS on television for the first time. From that moment on, KISS served as Whizlam's primary inspirational influence. A natural born DJ/Producer, young Whizlam would spin records at parties that his mother would hold almost every weekend.

He reveled in the ability to make people change their moods by the music he would play, and also how he had the whole party under his command. This love for being the sound party provider reached its climax in the winter of 1979 when Whizlam heard the hip hop classic "Rapper's Delight" for the very first time. From that day forward, Whizlam would spend the next 6 years learning more about the culture of Hip Hop.

Whizlam cites "Leader of The Pack" by UTFO featuring Mixmaster Ice, as the deciding factor in him choosing the turntables as opposed to the microphone in 1985. He saw the DJ as the most important element in Hip Hop just as the founding forefathers intended. Other major DJ influences include; Grandmaster Flash, Terminator X, DJ Jazzy Jeff, DJ Magic Mike, DJ Sugar Shaft & DJ Quik.
