Biography

Stacy Kidd was born in Chicago in 1972 and started DJing in 1987 after being amazed by the music he was hearing on the radio. He started out recording Chicago house mixes off the radio, and would try to mix them together with 2 tape decks. He would even try to mix them together on one radio with 2 tape players on it. After doing that for a year, Stacy began to have a good ear for the music and started to buy records…. but didn’t even own a turntable yet. It wasn’t until 1989 when he finally got a single turntable and started to mix with one turntable and one tape deck. Having mixed for a while without a pitch control on tape decks, using the turntable came naturally.

In 1990 Stacy was invited to play at a house party where he first used two turntables. There he met Paul Johnson who was a guest at the party. Stacy was playing a lot of unknown tracks he received from other producers like Ron Hardy, DJ Rush, Armando and Farley JM Funk. Paul also had some unknown material so they stared comparing tracks. Stacy would play one, then Paul would play one. This went on for hours. Soon after, they began to hang out and work on music together regularly.

In 1994 Stacy completed his first record with Paul on Dance Mania Records called “Stacy Kidd & Pilly P Doing Thangs Vol 1.” They went on to do two more volumes before Stacy completed his first solo project called “15213 Loomis” on Dance Mania Records in 1996. Following Paul Johnson’s advise on musical styles, Stacy put out three club records that same year on Huge Records (Chicago), Relief Records (Chicago) and Peacefrog Records in London. In 1997 he started traveling with Paul and performing at different events all over the world.

    Hey Stacy, maybe You remember me. I built a track around Your vocals (The movement)). Since then I got great feedback on this track. I wanna suggest the following to You: You get all the royalties (money), as long as my name (RobinFranz) gets mentioned. I am not in for the money, i am just in for the fame. http://www.lastfm.de/music/RobinFranz/_/Kroozin%27 Hope to hear from You, RobinFRanz

    Hi Stacy, got one of Your vocal sound samples off looperman (by a guy called DJFunk) and made a track with it: http://www.lastfm.de/music/RobinFranz Hope this is fine with You. If not, please tell me, and I will take it off the net immediatly. If You wanna have it featured under Your name, its o.k. with me. Then it would be "The Movement" by Stacy Kidd (RobinFranz mix). Hope to hear from You soon, RobinFranz Please tell me, what You think of
