Biography

Born in the 70s at the peak of Motown Records, Big Strick was heavily influenced by the Temptations, Marvin Gaye, 4 Tops and a host of other extraordinary acts that blessed Detroit with great soulful music. As a youth, Big Strick started taking to another unique Detroit sound, P-FUNK (PARLIAMENT FUNKADELIC), whose style of funky guitar, bass, keyboard, funky synthesizer and drum players led to a style that would change the face of music forever.

As an early teen Big Strick was introduced to house music. At that time The Wizard (Jeff Mills) was the DJ on 92.3 WDRQ. Big Strick recalls “sitting listening in amazement to the radio and would not move until his set was over, saying ‘damn, this guy’s fast’. Spending hours at a time taping him on cassette and walking the 12 blocks to Buy Rite Records which was the only house music record store in the Detroit at the time.”

The sound Big Strick was more attracted to was the sound of Trax Records (Chicago) and Metroplex (Detroit). Big Strick and some friends started throwing parties around the city (Detroit) where they would DJ. Patrice Scott (Sistrum Records) and lil cous’ Alex Omar S (FXHE Records) would sometimes tag along.

Big Strick continued to do parties throughout the years but with his family beginning to start in the mid 90s he slowed down but still kept the music going. Now that his family has started to bloom he is back with old school flavour and a new school style
