Born in the 70's at the peak of Motown Records, Big Strick was heavily influenced by the Temptations, Marvin Gaye, 4 Tops and a host of other extraordinary acts that blessed Detroit with great soulful music. As a youth Big Strick starting taking to another unique Detroit sound. P Funk (Parliament Funkadelic), who's style of funky guitar, bass, keyboard, funky synthesizer and drum players lead to a style of music that would change the face of music.

As an early teen Big Strick was introduced to house music. At the time The Wizard ( Jeff Mills) was the DJ on 92.3 WDRQ. Big Strick recalls sitting listening in amazement to the radio and would not move until his set was over saying "man this guys fast" Spending hours at a time taping on cassette and walking the 12 blocks to Buy Rite Records which was the only house music record store in Detroit at the time.

The sound Big Strick was more attracted to was the sound of Track Records(Chicago), Metro Plex(Detroit). Big Strick and some friends start throwing around the city(Detroit) where they would DJ ( Patrice Scott/Sitstrum Records, and sometimes lil cous' Alex Omar S/ FXHE Records who would tag along).

Big Strick continued to do parties throughout the years with his family beginning to start in the mid 90's he slowed down but still kept the music going. Now that his family has started to bloom he is back with his old school flavor and new school style! « hide
