1994: Inside of a dump truck storage facility at the garbage dump in Green-Point Queens, NYC is where Hectic got his first taste of the East Coast Underground. The East Coast rave scene of the mid-nineties was ruled by street legends and run on the strength of the underworld. Its sound was raw, unique and as urban as the culture that spawned it. A tower of speakers and a glimpse of the future was all that it took to change the course of Hectics life and the dance music scene in America forever. 12 years later DJ Hectic has made himself a Philly legend.
