Montclair Saint was introduced to Hip-Hop at the age of 8 by his older brother, who was already was a Dj and Graf artist, so it was easy for Montclair to catch on. By age 15 he started to dabble in beat production and rapping as well. At 19 he caught a break and got offered a job a professional recording studio in bowie M.D. Being mentored by the owner, Montclair Saint started to fine tune his production skills, thus starting a avalanche of opportunity’s for him. By 21 he got back to his dj roots and along with two other turntablist(Dj Roctacon @ Icon) started The Dj crew known as the GOONIES. This lead to countless hours of mixing’ & scratchin’ & beat juggling, battles, and beefs “but, what fun!”. All this help Flip become a well rounded Dj who now mixes with all forms a music, which help to land him in a band called The 50 Man Machine, which thrives on the unexpected nature of live performance, social consciousness, improv and pure joy. The groups diverse backgrounds in jazz, pop, celtic, hip-hop, caribbean, gospel, ambient, funk, afropop, rock, and folk all come together into one very exciting experience. Flip has gone on to win the Guitar Center’s Spin-offs Battles held in Albany N.Y. 2 years in a row and also won the Kiss 102 Mix Off at the Pepsi arena that following year.
