From the age of 8 years old, Elekid has been completely submerged in electronic dance music. What started out simply listening to Techno and House jams on Chicago's B96, soon became somewhat of an obsessive compulsive disorder with recording late night mixes by Bobby D., and hitting up local record stores such as Jumpin' Muzik and Hip House for bootleg House cassette tapes. In 1997, Elekid took the next and obvious leap of getting involved with DJing. As Chicago Hard House evolved, so did his taste in electronic music. He would go on to add many different genres to his arsenal of tracks such as Hard Trance, Breaks, Jump/Tekstyle, Tech Dance, Hard Dance, Hard Techno/Schranz, and virtually the entire genre of Hardcore. Skipping ahead to 2005, Elekid begins produce and sets off to do what he only dreamt about as a kid. In 2007, his track, Tekno Drugs, became a widely requested tune by his American Hard House peers and other Hard Dance DJs across the country, but would not get an official release until December of 2010. Here we are in 2013, and in the last 15 years, Elekid has become a household name in the United States across all hard electronic music boards. He has played for and amazed countless crowds across America, at a staggering number of events, and has been picked up by two record labels, SoCalConnect Music (LA), and Noise Complaint Records (MN). You can check out Elekid's releases on junodownload.com, beatport.com, and many other digital music sites! If it's hard, it's Elekid.
I first started DJing in 2009 when I met my current girlfriend/ fiancé BaKpAk. She had been a DJ for almost a decade when I first had met her. She had all these vinyls on the floor in crates and in her record bag mostly all happyhardcore and jungle. So I asked her what did all these knobs and buttons do on the mixer. So she showed me the basics of trims, highs, mids, and lows. As well cross fader and effects and several other tidbit things on the mixer. Only having vinyl to play I learned how to beat match and scratch quiet quickly but not easily. It's been now almost 4 years sense I first started mixing. I have played at many events and now hosting some too. I mostly like to play freeform/ happyhardcore/ and hardcore mostly but I also enjoy hardtrance, goa trance, and several different types of hardcore. This will be my first time playing for a new crowd out of state. Very excited to see all your new faces and meet some amazing people!

In one gig you will get anything from disco to freestyle to techno to juke and everything in between. Having been so deeply involved in E.D.M. since the 90's, B-Rad is able to transition flawlessly between anything.
