DJ Revolution began his career at the age of 13 on some dusty, old, mismatched, beltdriven turntables his grandfather pulled out of the attic. After hooking them up to a mixer ol’ grandad built from scrap metal in his garage, he started selling Top 40 and rock mix tapes to his sixth grade class. When he first heard “The Adventures of Grandmaster Flash on The Wheels of Steel ” which had already been out a few years – his whole idea of what a DJ was turned upside down.

Since then DJ Revolution has spent 15 years perfecting his craft on the 1200’s. You’d be amazed at how much one can do with records in 15 years, and Revolutions has done just about everything you can think of. Spun ’em, scratched ’em, juggled ’em, sampled ’em, collected ’em, produced ’em, sold ’em, distributed ’em, promoted ’em and so on. But in 1996, after sending an outdated mixtape to King Tech, he could add one more item to the list of things he’s done with records; played ’em on the “Wake up Show”.

Two weeks after Tech contacted DJ Revolution, Rev was on the show doing regular guest spots. In 97′, when a friend and crewmember Prince Ice left the show, Rev took over the wheels, and has been holding ’em down ever since.

Aside from his duties on the air he has lent his now infamous scratch techniques to countless records and his production skills to many established artists. Revolution has also released 2 of his own Full Length LP’s (In 12’s we trust/R2K) and 1 with his partners Sway & Tech (This or That). He now owns and operates his label Millenia Music, on which he will continue to make classic contributions to the hip hop world thru the material it puts out.

However, no matter how involved in the business of Hip Hop DJ Revolution becomes he will always be most comfortable standing behind two 1200’s

DJ Revolution’s new mix compilation “Wake Up Show Mix Archives Vol.5&6” featuring live mixes of 2002 & early 2003 show highlights will be released in April 2004 on French record label Nocturne.

DJ Revolution hosted an exclusive lecture at the United DJ Mixing School in July 2002. Sections of the lecture can be viewed here:
