IFTW

IFTW was born March, 1982 in Guatemala City, Guatemala. In 1989 his family immigrated to the US & landed in the City of Champions, Inglewood CA. The early 90’s shaped his musical arsenal, influenced by his father’s music (Classic Rock, Latin Jazz, Funk & Soul), his mother’s Music (80’s new wave & 70’s R&B) & the golden sound of Hip Hop he heard on the radio (KDAY & The Beat 92.3). Mid 90's he was introduced to the bass booming sounds of House, Jungle, Trance & Hardcore by the Saturday late night Mixshow Powertools hosted by Richard “Humpty” Vision & Swedish Eagle.

This fueled his love for all genres & with the exposure to djing in High School, He fell in love with the art form. Throughout the late 90's he rocked dance floors across High Schools, Warehouses & eventually Clubs. In 1999 he was introduced to the battle culture when he came across the 1991 DMC World Championship VHS. From that moment on he focused on one goal, making it to the USA DMC Finals.

In the DJ battle scene he quickly made his way up the ranks, winning many local championships, reaching 2 DMC USA Finals & 2 DMC World Finals. In 2012 after joining the All-Star Turntable Crew BattleStar, he won the DMC Team National Championship earning 4th place in The World Competition.

These days, IFTW continues to rock dance floors all throughout the west coast with his musical repertoire & world renowned turntable skills. He's also put his focus on producing his own music, covering genres from Hip-Hop, Moombahton, Trap, Jungle & House. IFTW has always had music driving his soul & now he wants the world to hear it.
