Ted Shred


Ted Shred has been pioneering styles since an early age. He was born and raised in California, where he picked up bike riding, skateboarding and dj-ing at a young age. He didn't want to dance at the school dances so he began djing in 7th grade. Claimed to be THE mash-up king, and one and only who continues to shred on the decks with original vinyl only, listen and prepare to be truly impressed. A true iconoclast in each interest he has, he has been setting standards world wide for more than a decade. Read more on Last.fm
Ted Shred has been pioneering styles since an early age. He was born and raised in California, where he picked up bike riding, skateboarding and dj-ing at a young age. He didn't want to dance at the school dances so he began djing in 7th grade. Claimed to be THE mash-up king, and one and only who continues to shred on the decks with original vinyl only, listen and prepare to be truly impressed.

A true iconoclast in each interest he has, he has been setting standards world wide for more than a decade. He lived and worked the clubs in NYC for 2 years most recently, before moving on to continue his relentless touring of North America and Europe for various gigs and bike competitions. 'DJ Ted Shred remembers when it was nearly impossible to get local clubs in Chico CA to book hip-hop or rap acts. “Nobody was getting down with the hip-hop,” he remembers of the 1980s and very early ‘90s, even though students were coming to Chico State from urban areas where the music was already firmly ensconced. Ted Shred is not averse to being called “old school,” DJ’d at the Burro Room, by what was then Hey Juan’s on Second Street.

New wave, punk rock and disco ruled the stage, and the only way to make rap palatable to the frat boy audience was to put discs from both genres on a turntable and mix it. “People started packing that place,” says Ted Shred, who was there when Nirvana, Primus, Mudhoney and other bands that later made it big played Chico. Soon, The Graduate let him spin Run DMC, Whodini, the Beastie Boys and some occasional underground stuff. He did a hip-hop show on KCSC. Now, “I fly all around the world playing hip-hop,” he says.

“It’s all I do; I spin records and listen to records all day.” He tours with Red Bull energy drink promoters as a DJ and has accompanied Ricky Powell, who’s known as “the fourth Beastie Boy,” to Japan. Old-school rapper Fab Five Freddy has Ted Shred’s CD on his answering machine.' (article except from: Read more on Last.fm.
