D-Styles learned to scratch first in 1984..."It was my dad's turntable. The platter was a little 45rpm. It was a horrible turntable. You had to be real gentle. It actually helped in the long run because I had to be real gentle with the record. After that I learned to mix. In junior high I was doing little house parties 1985-1986." He can be heard mixing, "music that I like whether it's rock, blues, or hip hop. I like to play a lot of instrumental stuff." Catch a glimpse of D-Styles & his crew: Turntable Troopers (w/ RPM, DJ Ruthless), ISP, Beat Junkies, and Gunkhole, you sure will be dancing all night long!
