Records it may be one of his tracks making you move while he is not even in the building. Keep your eyes and ears open, for here comes DJ Rob-E!
Security was interested in music since he was 3 years old listening to his father mastering the 12 string guitar. He was always blown away by the ability of a person's skills to mesmerize a musical instrument.
Before he discovered turntables he was "pause and recording" old school rap and bass tapes, as if he were remixing, at the age of 12. What really started it was his first club job at the age of 18 yrs old; at the legenendary EDGE as head of security, he heard the sounds of DJ Icey, Babyanne and STYLUS. Blown away with the beginning of the breakbeat movement he was interested in learning to spin. One night at Babyanne’s birthday she handed him an old school record "feel the bass" and told him to play it. He did and that’s when it began. Picking up on pointers from Babyanne and Stylus, he practiced 7-8 hours a day, 7 days a week, for 6 months and became a well skilled and intelligent DJ.
Playing at clubs like the Edge, the club @ Firestone, Ultra violet, and head resident DJ at Cyberzone for 2 1/2 years. Security was the first to bring the dark Euro electro bass sound to the Central FL area.
Now teamed up with the infamous DJ Rob-e they are traveling form coast to coast. A master of engineering and production this team will be a force reckoned with.
