Joel began as a DJ and turntablist, later producing breaks for scratching and writing galactic beats. While other DJ’s were very into WuTang at the time, DAM!BEER was jamming to the influences of Godzilla Space Breaks and Atari 2600. He then started slowly to get more involved with hip-hop, uniting his wackier ideas with the maturity of the boombap.
He eventually started paying more attention to MIDI gear than he was to buying more records, and decided to start playing around with new ideas. Eventually he met up with the crew, providing beats, scratches and whatnot alongside the Botanico liveshows, and terrorizing clubs alongside more of his friends under the ‘Basik’ moniker. Make sure to check out more of him, be it as a DJ or beatmaker.
