omfGrav3y

This is my introduction post to OMFG! I am very excited to see this fruition start here : ) I wanted to make this post to let everyone know a little bit more about me, and how I know the rest of our lovely contributors. I've been living in Atlanta, GA since birth and dont mind stayin for a little while longer. I love the city and all it has to offer. 
Growing up I've been an avid fan of musical formats. Mostly vinyl though :drools: Collecting since around 1999 I've accumulated around one thousand pieces of vinyl. Thanks to a lot of people including Brian Flis, David Whitaker (and his Father), Roy Graves III, Billie Jo Robbins, Amos, April, Dixie Sound Works, Wax N Facts, Satellite, Rewind, Criminal Records, More Dusty Than Digital, Virgin Megastore (NYC), and Breakbeat Science. Now with almost every cent I earned from 1999 to 2007 I am surrounded by music. Whether it be in my room, on my computer, in my car, in my dang head. I have been playing records on two turntables since 1999 as well.    
With a focus on drum and bass music from 2002-2008 I was able to start a series of complex dj mixes, play at the world reknown Transit club night at The Mark Ultra Lounge on numerous occasions including notable times like opening for Teebee, Fierce. I also placed in the finals for the Test Your Fucking Locals dj competitions. Joining Resource and with the guys, holding down the dnbtv.com radio show was fun, but after a year or so I took my leave. Other memorable times in the recent past include playing as Technolojesus (dvdeath,grav3y) for New Years Eve at Lenny's, then re-forming featuring Obskure one year later for East Atlanta Love. 
Lately Atlanta has seen a lot of amazing talent come through and its mind has been thoroughly blown in the process. Ive had the pleasure to have had some fun with the other contributors! First off, Mark (Obskure) is my older brother. S is pretty much my sister by now. P.A.T.T. is my long time friend and spiritual advisor. Steph Geezy is my cuz for real. Mo is my partner in crime on the omfg. Kate is my friend I see randomly at Buddy's at midnight. Markos! is my past present and future deciphering of life mastermind hey man poopoo! Nat Nat Nat Nat Nat Nat Nat Nat.... Hit The Ducky! And Fozzy, well thats between him and I. 
Thanks to OMFG. Thanks to You. Keep your eyes open for special interviews with some of Atlanta's deepest crews and for the latest news on the shows you should know about. For instance:
