DJ STRESS (2TUFF / DC)

Hailing from the Washington, DC area, DJ Stress (aka Rich) has been involved with the drum & bass movement in America since it’s humble beginnings. He was introduced to the rave scene in 1992 and fell in love with the early breakbeat/hardcore sound and continued to follow it as it evolved into jungle/drum & bass. Fascinated by watching the DJs spin, he was inspired to buy turntables in 1994. A couple of years later, he teamed up with the infamous 2Tuff crew and was a prominent DJ in the DC drum & bass scene during the “Golden Years” and afterwards. At that time 2Tuff consisted of DJ Slant, DJ Stress, MC Mecha, MC Nes, Andrew Cerutti, and Peter Helms.

DJ Stress has performed alongside such internationally known DJs such as: Grooverider, Fabio, Andy C, Ed Rush, Optical, Matrix, Decoder, Tech Itch, LTJ Bukem, DJ Trace, Dieselboy, to name a few. He’s also spun at legendary events like Buzz, Revolution & Engage (DC Armory w/Ultraworld), The Winter Music Conferences 98 & 99, and more.
