Born and Raised in Brooklyn, Mandel Turner’s roots can be traced to The First Church of God in Christ gospel choir where his rich baritone voice was first discovered and nurtured. Later on the influences of early 80's Club Culture and DJ's such as Larry Levan, Tee Scott, Tony Humphries, further expanded the range to which his “musical voice” could be put to use. And thus a DJ was born. Emerging forms such as Disco and New Wave in addition to the more established genres of Rock, R&B and Soul opened his ears to the richness that is MUSIC and forever cemented his desire to become apart of this art form. If as shakespeare said, “All the worlds a stage”, then be it behind a mic or two turntables Mandel Turner is a true musician.
