“How Bad Do You Want It”? Is what always goes through the mind of this DJ. Coming from a rural upbringing and overcoming the odds. This South Texas raised Filipino-American farm boy established himself as a globally marketed brand name DJ by 2007. Starting out by wanting to get turntables in his freshman year of high school, his father was totally against him becoming a DJ with the hopes that his son would someday become a doctor. Taboo knew in his heart that he wanted to rock enormous parties & feel the energy of a festival. So… with 4 dollars a day, he saved up for months at 20 dollars a week lunch money and you do the math! Technics 1200 turntables are a not cheap set-up.
Some of his accolades include:
Sharing the bill with Guns N Roses, Corey Taylor, Drake, Pauly D, and many more in Las Vegas
2013 WMC Mix-Off Runner Up
