Rich Martinez started on his musical journey at a young age. The summer of 1981 was when he was bitten by the mixing bug after hearing "The Hot Mix 5" on local Chicago radio station WBMX's Saturday night mix show. He bought his first pair of used turntables and a mixer in 1982 and proceeded to start his DJ career in early 1983. He was tapped to be the second mixer to be featured on a small independent Chicago radio station WCYC, managed by Kenny Jammin' Jason of The Hot Mix 5.
Rich was in the WCYC collective 'The Jackmaster 5' as well as 'The Mastermix 6'. He competed in a few Chicago DJ battles, most notably winning the Mobile Battle at the Pan American Festival in 1986 at Navy Pier on Chicago's lake front. He worked at TRAX Records from 1985-86 pressing iconic tracks and having his first track released by TRAX in 1986. Titled 'Are You Ready", it was recently featured on a Harley & Muscle Classic Tracks EP.
He still DJ's at various club spots and private events, but more notably is currently working on several musical projects. He started his own music label, Chicago Skyline Records, in 2015. Rich had 22 releases up until August 2016 and past releases on London's Mas Profundo Muzica label; Smooth Agent Records; Cabbie Hat; Jive House US; Nobemko; Monkey Junk; and many more.
