HISTORY: Teddy first got his start when he first started going to clubs and events in the late 90’s, where he got inspired by such dj talents like MIXIN MARC, CAFFEINE, ERIK K, BOBBY D, TKC, MARKSKI, SUPREME, INPHINITY, PHANTA-C, CHRIS B, JOHNNY QUEST, BAD BOY BILL, JULIAN JUMPIN PEREZ and all the original B96 Mixmasters and more…..
Teddy always had a passion for music since he could remember (he even played in a Rock band as a drummer/percussionist with Rock being his first love), but when he got exposed to Dance music and saw some of these local djs tearing it up in the clubs, he knew he wanted to be a dj! He finally found his calling! Teddy would stand by the dj booth and just watch what these djs and what they could do, so he wanted to learn how to do those things himself!
The fire was lit! At first Teddy bought cd-djs and started to practice and pratice, and started to play at house parties and after-parties all over Chicago & suburbs. Teddy started getting his name out and built a devoted following. He then started to build his musical talent, and his knowledge of the hottest tracks! So slowly the name Teddy was being known all over Chicago! Known for the music he was so passionate about, and the energy he brings every time he spins!
It was not until he was invited to spin at TWITCHIN SKRATCH’s house that he fell in love with VINYL!! He starting learning from Twitch and to this day uses the skills the dj thought him! Even though Vinyl is Teddy’s first love, he now has advanced his equipment to include being able to play cds and his main set-up he uses is TRAKTOR SCRATCH PRO, which is used to control digital music with time-encoded Vinyls! (You have to see Teddy rock it with a set of Vinyl Turntables, a laptop & his massive collection of music! It truly is awesome!)
Teddy’s new passion is music production! He is always learning and cant wait to finally spread his passion for music, by making his own! Check out his first collaboration with Twitching Skratch on the MURKY BEATZ label, “By your Side.” More tracks by Teddy & the rest of the Murky Beatz artists coming soon!!
