DJ Loot grew up listening to a variety of genres. This variety led to an interest in playing several instruments at an early age, as well as a curiosity for how music was recorded. He would routinely take apart cassette players and other gear to discover how they worked. After high school, he began collecting various recording gear and recording his own hip-hop and rock music. As a student at CSU Chico in California, he found out about the Recording Arts program there, and switched major immediately. He graduated in 2004 with a BA in Music, with Recording Arts option.
After graduating from college, DJ Loot started his own audio production business in Sacramento CA, and has been a factor in the West-Coast music scene ever since. His goals are to enjoy mainstream success through mix-work and beat/song placements, while remaining as accessible to emerging indie talent as possible.
