Night Train Radio Freestyle

about

One of my fondest memories... The year was 1998 and my boy Dave had taken it upon himself to fund my new single "Elektro". We were pounding the pavement in Manhattan as we searched for Bobbito Garcia so we could hand him the vinyl and hopefully get my record played on the radio. Finally, we caught up with him at his store (Bobbito's Footwork) and he gave us the lead to go up to a radio show called Night Train that was going on that night.

When we got up to the station, Dj Eli was on the mix and Kinetic from The Arsonists was one of the MC's in the cipher. "Elektro" debuted on the air that night, and the on air freestyle session will forever hold a warm place in my heart. A lot of opportunities arose for me after that night. It was a truly great experience, and more evidence that persistence and hard work pay off.
