SIMAHLAK became immersed in the hiphop culture at a very young age, when ma dukes gave him his first record, "Adventures of Super Rhymes" by Jimmy Spicer. He began to DJ in '87 with Dj mobiles, doing high school parties and bar mitzvahs. Around that time, he got into doing pause tapes which eventually lead to his love for making beats/music production. He worked as a radio DJ for three years at Vanier College, breaking in records in which he felt were overlooked and deserved to be heard. Carrying on his taste maker tradition, Simahlak has since been a hiphop buyer/manager for several major hiphop stores in Montreal including: Tabou, Science, Noize and Disques Zulu.
