DJ Maître D' first picked up DJing way back in the 80s. These were the early days of Hip-Hop and Dance Music. And like so many other kids of the day, Epidemix wanted to be the next Grandmaster Flash or Jam Master Jay. Even before he picked up his first set of headphones, young D' would hear other DJs on the radio and say to himself: “I can do that!”
Maître D' honed his DJ and MC skills under the tutelage of Chicago legend David “Mixin” Dixon, son of late jazz great Willie Dixon. Soon, DJ Maître D' was spinning the "wheels of steel" at great 80s clubs like the Grand Central Station, The Network, and Florentine Gardens. More recently he has spun at various hot spots like Guy’s Nightclub in Beverly Hills, the Knitting Factory in Hollywood, and the Jonathan Beach Club in Santa Monica.
