Biography

MY NAME IS DAVID STORM RUFFIN. SOME PEOPLE SAY THAT THE EYES ARE THE KEYS TO THE SOUL. I THINK IT’S MUSIC…WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF “STORM”. FROM THE AGE 5 I STARTED TO GET THE FEELING I WAS GOING TO DO SOMETHING WITH MUSIC BUT I DIDN’T HAVE ANY IDEA I WOULD BE CREATING IT. MY MOTHER AND FATHER INTRODUCED ME TO MUSIC IN THE EARLY 70’S. THEY HAD A BAND AND I REMEMBER SITTING ON MY FATHERS LAP AND HITTING THE COWBELL. I THOUGHT THAT WAS THE GREATEST FEELING IN THE WORLD. MY MOM USED TO SCOLD ME FOR ALWAYS TURNING THE TREBLE AND BASS KNOBS ON THE RECEIVER BUT LITTLE DID SHE KNOW YEARS LATER I WOULD BE GETTING PAID FOR DOING THE SAME THINGS I GOT IN TROUBLE FOR AS A CHILD. TODAY WE CALL IT TWEEKIN THE KNOBS…HAHAHAHA! I’VE BEEN DJ ING FOR 20+ YEARS PLAYING GREAT MUSIC BY OTHER ARTISTS IN THE INDUSTRY. NOW I AM PRODUCING AND REMIXING AND IT’S MY WAY TO GIVE BACK TO SO MANY PEOPLE WHO PAVED THE WAY FOR ME AND GENERATIONS TO COME. COMING FROM THE CITY WHERE HOUSE MUSIC WAS STARTED (CHICAGO) I CAN ONLY HOPE AND PRAY THAT MY MUSIC IS GOOD ENOUGH TO TOUCH A SOUL LIKE SO MANY OF THE ARTISTS AND PRODUCERS BEFORE ME. MY DJ ING CAREER BEGAN WHEN I WAS ABOUT 11. MY UNCLE “JESSE JONES” OF MASTER C&J FEATURING LIZ TORRES TOOK THE TIME TO SHOW AND MENTOR ME IN MY EARLY DAYS OF SPINNING. JESSE TOLD ME ” IF I WANTED TO BE SUCCESSFUL IN THIS BUSINESS YOU HAVE TO PUT IN THE WORK”. ” NO ONE IS GOING TO GIVE YOU ANYTHING YOU HAVE TO PROVE YOURSELF”. SO AFTER YEARS OF PRACTICE MY JOURNEY BEGAN WITH A FEW GUEST SPOTS AROUND CHICAGO.
