For a record to attain anthem status with DJs around the world is no small feat, but Prince Quick Mix accomplished just that with his 1996 independent house music interpretation of the Led Zeppelin classic "Babe I'm Gonna Leave You". This New York native has been influencing the world's underground house & hip hop scene since the late 80's, quietly creating a solid reputation as one of the first producers to blend hip hop, modern rock, house and now drum & bass music, creating his own "Amped Up" sound.
Prince Quick Mix began his DJ & production career spinning live weekly three hour radio mix shows on WNYU 89.1 FM, creating special remixes & edits displaying his "no boundaries" approach. Capitalizing on his ability to create sought after underground rhythms, Prince Quick Mix produced definitive house music classics for Strictly Rhythm Records under the pseudonym "The Crucibles" & "King of Swing" as well as other outstanding tracks for both Nervous Records and Slammin Records.
Prince Quick Mix has also made his mark on the underground hip hop community. Operating under the pseudonym "Nubian Crackers'' with partner Undercover Brother, The Nubian Crackers created many underground hip hop classics as well as the infamous "Cracker Beats Vol. 1-10". Nubian Cracker beats can be identified in the mix on Funkmaster Flex's radio show (Hot 97) and continuous mix compilations as well as the underlying rhythm track in hip hop recordings such as "Ready To Die" by the Notorious B.I.G.
Prince Quick Mix is a firm believer in showcasing vocals in his remixes, which led him to be chosen by Paul Oakenfold to remix the now classic Robert Owens club cut "I’ll Be Your Friend". It was his version on Perfecto UK which was added in rotation on Radio One, Kiss FM, and Choice FM in England, as well as reaching top 30 on the UK sales chart, top 5 on the Record Mirror club chart, and top 10 on the MixMag buzz chart. In January and February of 1998 his remix of Duncan Sheik "Reasons For Living" on Atlantic climbed to #3 and spent several weeks on Billboard’s Club Play Chart, as did his remix of Linda Eder "Something To Believe In" which hit #5. In June of 1998 his remix of Dario G " Sunchyme" climbed to # l.
