In 1994 I was playing Metromedia and 1997 I moved to the United States and started my international experience with Katarock Sound. Killaface sound was found in the month of august 2001 in Milwaukee then moved to Chicago 2003.

Consist of hardcore juggling style, meaning dubplates mixed with regulars tunes more geared towards dancehall and foundation music.
