Biography

Shortrock is not the typical guy you see scratching behind 2 mc's at a show.Growing up as a sponsored skateboarder,Shortrock would scratch at his fiends place but never thought it would consume his life.But at the age of 18 a bad fall off a handrail changed all that.Having his left arm snapped in half,needing metal plates put in to repair the injury,his sponsors dropped him and he had to teach himself to scratch all over with the opposite hand.With all that aside he developed a unique style and took off with music full throttle.8 years later and many albums,collaborations,tours,and shows under his belt,catch this "scratch musician" cutting violin,koto,flute,and synth samples.This is a genre crossing turntablist.Hear him with K-the-I??? and he's coming with some experimental/psychedelic stuff,hear him with The Presence he's coming with furious whirlwind east coast cutting.Bottom line is Shortrock is not your typical "DJ".
