Hello World


After years of being a DJ, countless motivational talks, and endless ball busting, I finally have the testicular fortitude to get my blog on. There are so many things that I could talk about, but first thing is first… allow me to reintroduce myself… the name is Mark Anthony Laqui aka DJ Lingo of the iRT crew. I’ve been in the DJ game since 1996 (first single I bought on vinyl, Jay-Z’s Dead Presidents). I grew up in T-neck, NJ, which is known for its diversity, and I’ve always loved good music; I was that dude who had the radio in school or in town blasting the new tunes. It wasn’t until I saw the movie Juice, that I decided that I wanted to be a DJ. So I saved up what I could, went down to Your Beat (a former record store in Englewood, NJ), and copped some wax. I went through endless DJ names like SNAFU or DJ Mark, but felt like nothing stuck. So one day at Manhattan College, my homey Jake, was like your name should be DJ Lingo because of the way you talk. He said I had a unique way of talking and had my own slang. I started working with other DJs around the neighborhood and linked up with DJ OnPoynt to form P-Noise (get it Pinoys), Vinyl Method (DJs Reason & JonyFraze) , DJ Kurt Kryptoknight, DJ Cuekut & DJ Swerve. Later I linked up with DJ Rik Guyver (Rik Cordero) at Manhattan College where we all decided to join forces and created iRT (interboro Rhythmik Turntablists) So here we all are doing our thing years later. It’s time to embark on an historic journey starting right now....
