"How to Kill a Boom Box is a compilation of music I produced between 1989 to 1992. In the early 80’s, I began experimenting with drum machines, turntables and tape machines to create instrumental B-Boy rhythms for Break Dancers in New York City.

It wasn't much later that I began studying percussion with Juma Sultan (Jimi Hendrix percussionist). Sultan, instinctively gave me a Multivox Tape Echo chamber and a microphone, tools that led me to produce my first actually sellable productions, a few of which are included here.

I'd used the Multivox alongside a turntable, microphone and a two-track cassette tape recorder to produce my first guerrilla cassette productions, starting with a series of ambient / noise / distorted acid break / house albums called “Psycho Beats” under the band name “Psy Co.” (a band which I was the sole member of) and “Dj Tab”, then I followed up with the “Multivox Series as “X-On”, and “The Bedouin” (changing to Badawi years later). In the early ‘90s some of these tunes caught the ear of club kid promoter; Angel Melendez, whom helped get me my first bookings at after-hour parties in NYC, before being tragically murdered by Michael Alig in 1996.

These songs were produced rapidly — one swoop, with no overdubs, so they are essentially studio improvisations, and the only way I can actually tell, relatively, what year these were produced is by the apparent lack of gear used to create them, and the addition, or lack of, a single tool" Raz Mesinai.
