Monk’s first incarnation as a deejay was at the age of 5 or 6 at ‘Friends of Crown Heights Daycare Center’ in Brooklyn, NY. It was there at the end of a full day that his childcare providers would allow the first child who asked to spin a collection of 45’s on the classroom record player. More often than not, Monk was that child.
It was also around that time that he first witnessed live deejaying on two turntables by way of his future brothers-in-law. Once, when Monk attempted to touch said turntables, he got smacked in the back of the head by one brother-in-law and his arm grabbed by another. A third (and the eldest) yelled ‘DON’T TOUCH… SIT OVER THERE AND JUS’ WATCH!!!’ And so he did.
