Audio Interview Greg Stryke (Plastic City)
Born and raised in Kingston, Jamaica, Stryke began his music career at an early age. He started playing classical piano at the age of four. Moving to Miami, Florida (where he still resides) when he was ten, Stryke became heavily involved in early electronic alternative scene. At age 14, the young Stryke had already begun DJing to make money to buy more synth equipment. But after discovering this new underground dance music, he became as passionate about DJing as he was about making music. Says Stryke of the two, “Both production and DJing have really become one in the same for me. I really can’t separate the two. He’s considered to be one of the top DJs around today. His globetrotting schedule and growing legions of fans is proof positive of his ability to command dancefloors worldwide. In 2004, he was asked to be the official DJ for the MTV VMAs. Balancing work between the studio and the road hasn’t been easy. But Stryke wouldn’t have it any other way. “I’m truly blessed to be able to do what I love. The work, the stress, and the hardship is all worth it at the end of the day.” Stryke is quickly becoming one of the hardest working man in electronic music. Listen…Communicate…Understand. He is honoured to now be an official family member of the Plastic City family. Look for his full length album “The Narrowest of Paths”.
