Biography

Biography
Richard Vission’s musical career started when DJ culture was taking flight in Los Angeles. There were no superstar DJs to follow. It was just two turntables, a mixer and hours spent perfecting mixes, buying records, and making mixtapes. In 1994 Vission Co-founded the indie-label Aqua Boogie Records based in Los Angeles with long time friends and partners AJ Mora and DJ Tony B! The label had domestic and intentional success with club hits like The Feeling by Sugar and Energy by Devone’. Vission’s DJing style was so addictive that when he and his friends starting throwing house parties - literally, in someone’s backyard - 2,000 kids would show up and be happy to pay $3 to get in. Local club promoters couldn’t help but notice, and booked the DJ responsible for them. As his club DJ career took off, Vission began working at a local radio station. He started at the bottom, working his way up for two years, building his street credibility at local events, always a mixtape ready in his pocket, until the chance came: “They didn’t have a DJ to mix so they played my tape. More than 100 people called in asking, ‘Who was that mixing?!?’” The response opened the door to hosting and mixing Power 106’s POWER TOOLS. Now at fourteen years, it’s the longest running underground mix show in America, and it won Vission the 2003 DanceStar Award for Best Radio Show.
