1990年代初頭のクラブカルチャー黎明期から大阪のHipHopシーンを支えてきた、日本を代表するパイオニア。

キャリア初期に敢行したナイトクラブの本場・アメリカ、その中でもHipHopの聖地として知られるNew York訪問をきっかけに、今や伝説とも呼ばれ、自身の名を世に広めるきっかけとなったParty『SOUL FREE』をスタート。

盛況ぶりは各種メディアにも取り上げられ、絶大な影響力を誇った。

国内での自身のキャリアアップと並行して、New Yorkを中心に、観光スポットさながらの動員数を誇る大箱から、現地住民がライフスタイルの一環として音楽を楽しみに来る小箱まで、大小様々な場所でのDJプレイを毎年のように経験。

'05-'06年には、アメリカ東海岸ツアーを2年に渡って行い、自身の音楽観や揺るぎないバックボーンを築き上げた。

その後も、MiamiやLas Vegasなど世界最大級のナイトクラブがひしめき合うホットスポットへと足を運び、本場の空気を常に肌で感じ吸収。

刺激を受け、常にアップデートを続ける自身の音楽観と、幾多の渡米を経て形成された確固たるビジョンを以て、日本のダンスフロアーに本場・アメリカさながらの空気感を提供し、自ら先陣を切って、日本有数のパーティータウン・大阪のナイトクラブシーンの舵を取る。

この道20年を超える豊富な経験と、楽曲に対する確かな審美眼で、ダンスフロアーを常に盛況へと導き、シーン最重要パーティーのヘッドライナーを歴任。アメリカはもちろん、近年では、韓国・上海・台湾・ベトナム・シンガポール・インドネシア等、アジア諸国でのギグを敢行。

そして、2014年から「日本から世界へ発信」をテーマに掲げ開催がスタートした音楽フェス【Music Circus】への連年にわたる出演と、キャリア初期から現在に至るまで、断続的に活動の幅を広げ続ける、クラブシーンを語る上で避けては通れない業界最重要人物である。
