For over two decades, DJ Scratch has been everyone’s favorite DJ's favorite DJ. Acknowledged as one of the greatest DJs of all time and in 2006, he was honored in The Source Magazine as a Hip Hop Icon. Scratch is the man who provided the flamboyance to EPMD, Jay Z and P Diddy's stage shows. Throughout the years with EPMD, Scratch drove audiences into frenzies with visual and technical routines far beyond mortal DJs. One of his most famous routines is cutting Big Daddy Kane's "Friday the 13th Imma Play Jason" line as he emerges from beneath the turntable set wearing a hockey mask. Various DJ routines & turntable tricks created by Scratch over the past 15 years are still being duplicated by concert & Battle DJs today.
Co- motivator of the 90’s Timberland boots and army fatigues movement, Evil Dee sealed his fate in hip hop history beginning with one of the most noted classic hip hop albums, Black Moon’s Enta Da Stage. Thirty- one years prior to today’s success Brooklyn, New York native Evil Dee initially started exploring music through the influence of his mother, who was a pianist. After perfecting the piano, he realized he had a hunger for music. He went on to study the violin, guitar, bass, organ and the drums. At the age of seven he moved on to the turntables. What began as a fight for some of the attention Mr. Walt, his teenaged brother received as the neighborhood DJ, would soon solidified into a craft and major career of his own.
