Check out this Kelly Clarkson Remix I did with my good friend DJ Reidiculous. Stay tuned for more collabos with Reidiculous.
In 1996, while working at Tommy Boy Records, I was asked to put together a Megamix for the Platinum Selling Jock Jams Compilation. I enlisted the talented Chicago DJ/Producer Bobby D who was with B96. After 6 months of clearing samples, going back and forth, flying to Chicago and back to New York, we finally came up with what eventually became simply called The Jock Jam. The single sold over 500,000 copies by itself and became a National Sports Anthem!
The Jock Jams compilation series ended up selling more than 6 Million copies and was arguably the compilation series that caught the attention of the Major labels which was the pre-cursor to the NOW!, Dance Hits USA, and other Platinum selling CDs. The Video was recorded at club Palladium in New York City before it was turned into NYU Dorms. It also featured Michael Buffer.
This was one of my proud moments in my career as it was my First GOLD Single and First Platinum Album. It was also the first Fully-Licensed Legal Commercially available Mash-Up. I am honored to help create something that has become a Classic in Sports and Music.
