Bio: Argonaut started dj'ing in the 7th grade and credits that 100% to his older brother who was in high school at the time. MVP was born in 1988. His first pair of decks were belt drives silver BD-24s. While others were busy getting into mischief and gang banging dj'ing became a safe haven for Argonaut. While fights were breaking out at house parties, MVP was behind the decks and staying out of trouble. Then UCSD came along, met DJ Bojo, then came Jo_iLL, TTL was born in 2000, met a bunch of all around dope djs, Killa K, Pauze, JABA, Li, Gav, HGB was born in 2002, Koopa, Spag, Gayta, Ronald, Kris, CSH.... HGB is reborn everyday...

Philosophy: Having 1200s, maybe a decent record collection, or a harddrive full of music that you play on your serato doesn't make you a good dj. So maybe you actually play an all vinyl set. So maybe you put out a decent mixtape and your friends like it. Maybe you got up on some club or on the radio. Maybe you can scratch real well. You've won battles. Mixed in exotic places. Stay humble and keep your ego in check because you aint nothin' special. Do you know how many djs have already been there and done that? Too many djs get a minute of fame and think they're hot ish. We'll see where you are in 20 years. If you don't have the love and passion for it or anything then, you were nothing but a sucka dj.
