Dj Spotlight: Dj Tony B (Bangkok, Thailand)

Made in Chicago, Illinois, born in Bangkok, Thailand (November 1976), and raised in Southern California. Being a 70's baby, 
of course I heard my relatives playing Bee Gees, The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix etc. My cousins were on that Black Sabbath and AC/DC joints. 
But when my parents decided to move to Pomona, California some time in the early 80's thats where I discovered Hip Hop/Rap. Thanks to my 
neighbors bumpin' N.W.A and The Fat Boys all day! (R.I.P Buff Love) From then on I knew that that's where my heart was at. Falling in love 
and tapping into all of the elements of Hip Hop, I made sure this was permanently tangled into my DNA.
When we moved to Rancho Cucamonga, yes, Rancho Cucamonga, in the late 80's somebody gave me 'The Adventures of Slick Rick'thats what 
made me curious about the final element, Djing. But mixing with 2 tape decks on a Fisher stereo and no funds to buy Dj Equipment, that idea was out the window.
Then in 1995, I moved to Bangkok, Thailand.  Thats when it got serious.......
