Davizm started learning how to read and perform music on the guitar at the age of 10. Not being very happy on the guitar after 2 years, he was encouraged by his music instructor to pursue a different avenue and introduced him to the world of percussion. Falling in love with the drums his Dad bought his first drum set for him, being a former drummer himself. Growing up he was involved with Jr. High / High school marching and concert jazz bands to learn theory and principle and various rock bands to throw all that into the wind and go wild. After many years of unspeakable events and crazy fun his drums were stolen and his love for music stolen with it. Years after that he was introduced to a friend’s friend who happened to be a DJ in the Dallas club circuit. The energy, music style and dance scene of the historical West End of Dallas at the time was all it took to bring a rocker to the electronic age.
Industry Sounds became his favorite place to duck into, listen to vinyl and hang out on his lunch breaks. They moved to a new location, opened a bar / café and started hosting open deck nights where he decided to cut his public teeth. It wasn’t long after that he started making connections in the underground world spinning at various warehouse parties and after hour clubs.
