DJ SPEN'S BIOGRAPHY
At age 14, DJ Spen began his career in music by producing radio edits and supermixes for WEBB AM in Baltimore. During that time he founded the regions first hip-hop/mix production group called Numarx whose popularity carried them into performing with national acts like LL Cool J, Run-D.M.C., and Eric B & Rakim.
In 1986, the group recorded its first full length LP entitled "It's Our Time" on Studio Records which featured the hit record "Girl You Know It's True" which was later covered by Milli Vanilli.
Spen became an on air personality and mix show director for WEBB, and after graduating from college, secured a job as late night personality for Majic 95.9 FM. This job landed him a late night hip-hop/house show on Friday nights, and the ol' skool formatted Flashback Saturday Night Dance Party for the station. Later, with the acquisition of two new stations in Washington D.C., Spen became Mix Show Director for the company.
While his radio career was changing constantly, Spen worked with the Basement Boys as a songwriter, drum programmer, and pre-production assistant. Involved with the company since 1989, his influence on early Crystal Waters and Ultra Nate projects can be heard.
With the start of Basement Boys Records in 1994, Spen formed the Jasper Street Company and released his first full production called "A Feelin'". Later, along with his partner Josane, Spen completed the Jasper St. Co. L.P. entitled "IN A SPENSANE WORLD". Spen is now a full time remixer/producer and a nightclub DJ worldwide.

Help us celebrate the return appearance of one of Garage 416's favourites, DJ Spen! Also rockin' the spot will be T.O.'s own Blueprint (Jason Klaps, Mike K. & Alan Lo) and Moreno (Hot Stepper Productions); plus Jeremy Beckman & Mike Sitchon (JMK) spinning an all-classic dj set.
