His fascination began with seeing DJs on television and then was solidified with his fist experience mixing on a turntable. From then on he knew that was what he wanted to do. Many days, years and 10-hour session later he was now 13 and DJing school dances in his neighborhood. It was a great time for Souls of Mischief, Wu Tang and Biggie, and little Charlie was still staying true to his classics playing his Eric B. & Rakim. Gangstarr and Main Source 12 inches.
After high school his life began to take on new directions and a distance began between him and his music. He felt a disconnect and somewhat of a disappointment for his love for hip-hop: he wanted more. As he was about to hang up his DJ cords, he met D-Styles (Invisibl Skratch Piklz / World Famous Beat Junkies) and reintroduced DJing into his life with a sense of creativity he did not know was possible.
With a renewed sense of vision Charlie Darker traveled and performed internationally in London, Paris, The Netherlands, Spain, Australia, Japan, Bangkok and Hong Kong, Germany, South Africa and throughout the United States.
