Los Angeles born Theory began like most djs, in the bedroom, but unlike most djs he began when he was only 12 years old. At a time when dj and electronic music culture was at its early stages of development. However at the age of 12, Theory was no novice to music. He had been performing in musical recitals & playing various instruments such as the drums and violin since 5 years of age. Theory has a strong musical influence from his family background, whose mother is a professional singer and father is a well respected musician who has performed bass and guitar with artists such as Stanley Turrentine, Minnie Ripperton, Pointer Sisters, The 5th Dimension, and countless others.
After gaining much praise for his opening house and second room (patio/lounge) sets, as well as underground rave and warehouse events, Theory is now set to make a mark in the dance and music industry with his superb music selection and keen mixing/programming/scratching skills!
Quote: “I believe that you can either have the talent, or not ... I respect the DJs that are crossing boundaries and coming up with new ideas.”
Thus far, Theory has opened and performed with artists and djs such as; KRS-One, Little Louie Vega, Doc Martin, Kyoto Jazz Massive, Deep Dish, Eddie Amador, Gene Farris, David Alvarado, Aceyalone, Johnny Fiasco, Dj Sneak, Mark Farina, Dilated Peoples, The Pharcyde, Pennywise, Hoobastank, MixMasterMike, Turntables on The Hudson, Bugz In The Attic, Music For Freaks, and the list goes on!
Currently Theory is performing dj sets all over the US as well as pursuing a career in production & recording engineering. He also has a few collaborations such as; the hip hop group "Mob Zombie" (myspace.com/mobzombiemusic), and live bands like Modern Groove Assembly (Live acid jazz nu soul collaboration between LAs top studio musicians and the unbelievable Sy Smith, backup singer for Usher & countless others) as well as a house music collaboration titled "The Silent Salesmen" with one of cali's hottest upcoming house producer/dj's Bobby Valentine (of guided methods fame). The Silent Salesmen project is now being featured on DJ SNEAKS new "Ministry of Sound Sessions" double disc mix hailing out of the UK. Modern Groove and Mob Zombie will have tracks available very soon!
Theory is also a new addition to the "www.Limachips.com" resident dj lineup, along with super talented names such as Rich Medina, Bobbito Garcia, Dj Center, and much more!
These projects are sure to shine light in the coming years. Theory, along with his partners & affiliates in The Open Minds Collective are here to make a difference, creating an integration of quality music, talent, and a forward thinking attitude.
