20 years - 02 Apr 2007

Right about this time - 20 years ago - I began my carreer as a Radio DJ at The Voice in Copenhagen. Man, I can't believe that it's been TWENTY Years! As described in my biography I had a few shows, but focused mainly on my weekly hip hop show with live in studio mixing and commenting.

I collaborated on the show with Copenhagen mix DJs TNT and Chief 1 and we had a great time. Some of the artists we liked were Kool G Rap and Polo, Boogie Down Productions, The Jungle Brothers, and Marley Marl.

In many ways, my years as a radio DJ were a catalyst for my career as a songwriter, producer, and remixer. Station managers Lars Kjær and Dan Rachlin were instrumental in helping secure my first ever studio and record gig - a remix for Danish band Danseorkestret.
