In every human being and every child, we are all influenced by our experiences and we are molded into who we are today through our senses…sight, smell, taste, touch and SOUND…

The year 1980….
As a child growing up Eddie-Rey aka Aladdin was exposed to a melting pot of musical sounds TS_Headshotsuch as Soul, Funk, Disco & Rock, thus developing a wide rage of musical tastes.
Aladdin and his brother Tony would secretly remove the parent’s turntable player from the living room to a secret place in their home to play records.
They would emulate the sounds heard coming from the radio on then local radio mix shows: KDIA fm radio, Mixmaster Michael Erickson (Oakland California) & KSOL fm radio Mixmaster Cameron Paul (San Francisco).
The sounds they would try to duplicate were often described as abusive & looping sounds from the tweaking of the needle.
Today it is known as mixing and scratching…This would be the beginning of a venture created by musical fate.

DJ Aladdin first began his musical career as a mobile dj playing records before he was a teen during the 1980’s era & pioneering b-boy movement in the South bay area, playing records then to only commercial crowds.
He played everything from early hip hop, soul, funk, freestyle, Disco & early electronic pioneers such as Kraftwerk, Mantronik and more.
As electronic music evolved, he found himself veering away from a commercial sound and developed a lust for underground dance music.
An attendance to weekly underground house music parties injected a compulsive habit to collect house music. He soon became one these unsung house music heroes that so passionately conducted the dance floor.
Realizing in order to play the music he loved he would have to go underground and began organizing his own parties.
One of Aladdin’s claims to fame was San Jose’s very first early morning after hour party “eMERGE” @ ” 301 Stockton ” Founded & owned by longtime friend Paul Orozco.
“eMERGE” became the longest running underground weekly after hour party in the south bay.
This froze the attention of the local underground house community.
Soon after he was invited to perform among those unsung house music hero’s at numerous house music parties & clubs.
It was not long after this blazing trail he was asked to create a house music mixshow on 93.7 fm radio (1 of the Bay Area’s first pirated radio station’s)
“Underground transmissions” show would last a strong five years and spiraled weekly gigs and long running residencies among the south bay and San Francisco noted as: Dimensions, Big Heart City, 238 Columbus, 330 Ritch, Back Flip hotel, Club Ibiza, The Usual, Blue Lagoon, Holy Cow, Kelly’s mission rock, Cyberfest, Cool Word, Echo, Metropolis, Martel & Nabiel’s “Séance, ” and since his arrival to South Florida Miami’s Winter music conference, Jade Miami, Rumi Miami, Bed Miami, ” Jerry Kelly’s ” State club Miami, and Aquabooty rotating resident and much more.
