DJ Slink was born in Knoxville,Tennessee. He began his love affair with music early in life. As early as 5th grade he had already destroyed his grandparent's old turntable, scratched up their Lawrence Welk albums and accumulated a pretty impressive collection of 45's. Then along came the dual cassette boom box. What started out as a means to make breakdancing practice mixes, soon became a full-on obsession with the pause mix tape. Even then, Slink had an affinity for cutting and pasting.
Raised on Run DMC, LL Cool J, UTFO & Whodini, early Hip-Hop was a large influence. In the early 90's Slink was introduced to electronic music. Groups like Altern8, Meat Beat Manifesto,The Klf, The Prodigy and others soon became a huge influence. The turntable seemed like the natural next step. Thus, DJ Slink was born.
Slink began his career spinning underground warehouse parties. Playing in cities like Atlanta, Nashville & Asheville.
Later, Slink joined forces with some other like-minded people to produce music as "The Speed Freeks." High-tempo, high-octane breakbeat music. Signed to Stratus Records, The Speed Freeks released several
tracks on vinyl.
