Swamp toured with Beck for years and later broke away into a solo career with the album "Never is Now". Alterenative Press gave never is now an 8/10 rating. His follow up a Drum n Bass EP called "Instruments of Torture" was recorded with Jack Dangers of Meat beat Manifesto. His current album "Vinyl Disciple" produced several music videos including four 3D music videos. The music video for his song "The Leaders will Follow" is the first music video in history to incorporate 3D video scratching. His music video for Rock Rollin' features Dave England of Jackass fame.


Swamp built a loyal following around the world appearing at raves, festivals, hip-hop shows and even rock shows. His stage performance consists of him Mixing, Scratching, Magic Tricks and even Emceeing. Crowds are often overwhelmed by his stage presence, heavy bass sound, crowd interaction and give-a-ways.


DJ Swamp has invented several DJ tools that are considered standards, including his infamous "skip-proof scratch tool" records which have the same sample repeated over and over in a straight line so that if the needle is bumped it will land on the same sample. A technique that has been copied by most battle breaks and scratch records and are a staple in many turntablist sets.


DJ Swamp's scratch at the beginning of The Crystal Method track Name of the Game is one of his most recognizable scratches. The song is featured in several motion pictures including Tropic Thunder and Blade II.
In 1996, as a first time entry, he won the US DMC Championships. He showed up dressed in all black with a beanie cap and long hair. His set ended with Swamp using a technique called a pitch manipulation to play Deep Purple's "Smoke on the Water" on a guitar tone.


As a solo artist DJ Swamp has opened for such artists as The Prodigy, Bassnectar, Nero, The Crystal Method, Fatboy Slim, The Chemical Brothers, Mix Master Mike ,Datsik, Diesel Boy, Outkast, Fuel, Methodman and Redman.
He was also featured in the DJ documentary "Scratch" and The movie "CLOCK STOPPERS"
After winning the 1996 US DMC Championships a few weeks later Beck called Swamp and he joined the tour as Beck's DJ. They toured the world together throughout out the peak of Beck's popularity promoting the songs Loser and Where it's at (2 turntables and a microphone) and headlined the very first Coachella music festival.


After years of touring with Beck, Swamp decided that he wanted to explore his own creative ambition. He released his first album, Never is Now, which was supported by the successful single "Worship the Robots." The song featured Simple Text voice Fred as the rapper. The text application vocals were chopped up and manipulated to make it more like rap than just spoken text. Also on the album was "Disintegrator" which was featured in the movie Orgazmo and appeared on the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack.
He formed Decadent Records in 1996, which allows him to distribute his scratch tools vinyl and digital releases.


DJ Swamp's scratching can be heard through out the movie "Thirteen" which won an academy award and was the first movie for dIrector Katheryn Hardwicke of Twilight fame.

Residing in Los Angeles yet living in a twisted world of sound, this young artist stays dosed to the eyelids in chopped-up samples, meticulously tweaked beats and obese waves of bass.
Sugarpill seamlessly merges his techy sensibility and immaculate production skills without ever losing the inherent sexiness of the beats, and this multidimensional musical approach unites EDM fans across a vast spectrum of genres. His original tracks combined with explosive live sets confirm for the producer a powerful spot at the forefront of West Coast future sound. Crossing genres effortlessly and employing a rich variety of styles, his lively and intense sound is best described as a party- and that is exactly what Sugarpill brings to the dance floor.
