TURNTABLE WIZARD CHRIS "THE GLOVE" TAYLOR

Born:
Real Name: Chris Taylor
Artist Name: The Glove


Chris "The Glove" Taylor worked for a Disco Rental Service before he reached one of the DJ pioneers on the West Coast. Because of the heavy worker Gloves he weared while working, the Disco Manager gave him the DJ Name "The Glove". The Glove and Egyptian Lover were the local DJ´s at the famous Radio Club which later renamed to the Radiotron. Together with Ice T and Super A.J. they formed the Radio Crew. The Crew put out one of the rarest EPs in Hop-Hop history for the documentary "Breaking And Entering" which was produced by Topper Carrew back in 1983 showing the early West Coast Rap and Breakdance Movement. Together with Dave Storrs he made the record "Reckless" for the Breakin movie and "Tibetan Jam" released in 1984. His most famous record as a solo artist is the mixrecord "Itchiban Scratch" released on the Electrobeat label in 1985 which was a instrumental track filled with scratching and samples from young children singing "The Grand of Duke Of York" around a Japanese style theme. He also worked together with Victor Flores for the mixrecords "Breakmixer 1" & "Breakmixer 2" and appeared on the famous Motown hip hop record "Scratch Break" by the Motor City crew. He can be seen on stage with Chaka Khan, Ozone and Turbo performing the song "I feel for your" in 1984.

More recent credits are on Dr Dre's albums "The Chronic" and "The Aftermath" on which he received mixing credits and on The Firm's album as a producer.
