Los Angeles born, Las Vegas raised, and now Los Angeles representative, Theory began like any dj, in the bedroom, but at the age of 12 years old! With strong musical influence from his family background, whose father has played jazz bass and guitar with some of the greats such as Stanley Turrentine, Minnie Ripperton, Pointer Sisters, The 5th Dimension, and countless others. Theory started mixing his dads old jazz record collection with some hip hop beats. Because of his dedication to hip hop music, he began sharpening up his scratching and mixing skills first before bringing his style out to the masses. Now Theory has spawned off into many other genres of music as well. Growing a strong love for deep funky house music and abstract organic rhythms, he is set to make a mark in the dance and music industries with his superb music selection and keen mixing/programming skills, not to mention his amazing scratching capabilities and turntable wizardry. Theory has performed alongside artists and dj's such as; Krs-One, Medusa, Aceyalone & Freestyle Fellowship, Dr. Oop, People Under the Stairs, LA Symphony, Shapeshifters, Kerri Chandler, Joey Beltram, Little Louie Vega, Deep Dish, Jesse Brooks, Eddie Amador, Gene Farris, David Alvarado, and the list goes on!
Currently Theory is performing live dj sets in Southern California and surrounding cities as well as working on a career in music production and recording engineering. He is also working with a live band entitled "PooPanHooligan" who also strive to fuse different styles of music (mainly hip hop, funk, jazz, electronic, and reggae) into their funky undertone. PooPan has already taken a battle of the bands and performed alongside groups such as The Pharcyde, Souls of Mischief, Pennywise, MixMasterMike, MOP, Styles of Beyond, etc... Theory now has combined with other talented dj's, artists, and producers in a like minded collective called "Open Minds". Theory, PooPan, and the rest of the Open Minds are currently working on demo projects. They seek representation as well as solid show dates.
