Introducing the Subsoniq Crew, Part 2.

subsoniq_logoNext up is my man DQ: Co-Host of the show, and “The Muhammad Ali of Facebook DJ’s” (big thanks to him for getting back to me quickly, and my apologies for being so slow to get this posted). Here we go with: SubSoniq introductions, part 2.

“My name is Adam J. Levine, AKA Deuce Quattro or DQ. I was born and raised in The Boogie Down Bronx, New York City. Naturally when you grow up in NYC, Hip Hop culture is very relevant in everyday life. When I was about 11 years old, I let my cousin hear the new cassette tape I had just made by dubbing songs off the radio ( Hot 97, WBLS, and at the time 98.7 KISS ), as we all used to do. The next day he handed me a different cassette tape and said, " I think you will like this better ". The tape representthatcontained such artists as Cypress Hill, Public Enemy, Ice Cube, EPMD, Redman, Black Sheep, Rakim, Brand Nubian, and A Tribe Called Quest. My life was never the same after that day. Like Biggie said "I let my tape rock till my tape popped". I literally did, and THAT was my first introduction to Hip Hop.

Music in general has always been a big part of my family. Every Saturday morning I would wake up to my Mother cleaning our apartment in The Bronx with loud music playing. Usually it was either Salsa Music or any genre of Jazz, in addition to R&B and Soul artists like Anita Baker, Regina Bell, and Sade. Also, my uncle was in a Salsa band and was nasty on the Congas.

In the future you can expect to see more of me covering various events such as our annual visit to the Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival. I personally feel that if you hear Subsoniq one time, you will tune in on a regular basis. That is how much DQsubstance we bring to the table. We take the " mainstream" and " politics" out and replace it with "REALITY". It's Hip Hop you can relate to, from artists we all know and love, to artists you may not have heard yet. Either way Subsoniq will leave you wanting more, as well as discovering new music and artists on a regular basis.”
