More info:

You may not have heard of him, but he sounds kind of familiar. You may not recognize him, but you feel like you’ve seen him somewhere before. If you’ve been involved in California’s hip hop scene all your life, chances are you’ve either seen him at a show, been to his club, DJ’d alongside him, or bought music from him.

S.T.A.T.I.K. became a turntablist at a young age and Hip Hop had naturally become his life. In high school, he organized and hosted the first DJ battle on campus ever to take place during school hours. He was responsible for throwing phat concerts and giant parties, also new for the school. While taking a few community college courses, he hosted a Hip Hop radio show on a local station. Being booked gig after gig throughout the Bay Area with or without his former SwingSet crew, S.T.A.T.I.K. was ready for a change of scenery and headed south in 1997. It seemed like Riverside was just waiting for S.T.A.T.I.K. to come along. With a few partners, he founded Red Light District at Incahoots on Thursday nights. He brought in such acts as Cotton Mouth Kings, Incubus, and the Luniz. From Riverside, he made his way toward the city, still spinning at various gigs, and worked alongside Chuck of Hollywood Hip Hop, stocking the record store with independent must-haves like Planet Asia, Living Legends, and the Visionaries.
