Born during the era of Detroit’s second wave of techno, Kyle grew up immersed a rich legacy of musicians and artists on both sides of his family. Jazz, soul and gospel came from his mother’s side (who is a professional singer), as well as his Uncle Ray (aka DJ Raybone, a local legend), while his father, on the other hand, owned a nightclub.
