Born and raised in Toronto, Ontario, Sean Caruso has always felt fortunate to have been introduced to electronic music at such a young age. After being introduced to artists such as Acen, The Prodigy and Praga Kahn, Sean also started to become influenced by his brother’s love for Hip Hop music.
In the beginning of 2000, now residing in the city of Hamilton, Sean had picked up his first set of turntables and it wasn’t long before he began to experiment with production and devoting most of his time towards his music.
In 2001 Sean had moved north to Barrie, Ontario to live with long time friend Paul Currie (Parabolic). For the next year they worked together until early 2002 when Sean had decided to move back to Hamilton after hearing of a local DrumnBass promotion company making moves in the city.
That company was 'Urban Ninja Crew' run by Drew W. (DJ Target) and Josh W. (Enemee Emcee). It wasn’t long before Sean was introduced to them, and started playing regularly at their events in the city. Then in September of 2002, as the members of UNC decided to go their separate ways, Sean and Josh decided to create a new company for the Hamilton DrumnBass heads. That company was ‘Soundbwoy Entertainment’, and their first event was held at Fever Nightclub in November of that year. Soundbwoy Entertainment was soon gaining the respect of heads throughout Ontario by bringing down fresh talent on a weekly basis, and working with other promotion companies in the area. The launch of their online community, www.soundbwoy.net, also gave people a chance to discuss upcoming events as well as issues within the scene.
In the summer of 2003 Sean had his first 12” release on Havoc Recordings. HAVC001 featured Los Angeles producer, Dave Akuma, with his amen smasher, ‘Forsaken Humanity’, along with Sean’s track, ‘Chosen Path’. HAVC001 was a success for the pair, being played in clubs around in southern Ontario and abroad by some of the scene’s top Drum and Bass talent.
2004 started off as a busy year for Sean with a collaboration event between Soundbwoy Entertainment, and local promotion company ‘Round Table Records’. ‘BACK TO BASICS’ featured 28 artists, 3 arenas, and a variety of genres in the heart of downtown Hamilton. The response was huge! Close to a thousand people showed up to the venue. Over the next year the SBE and RTR put the Hamilton party scene back on the map by hosting two more successful events inside Hamilton’s Fever Nightclub. In October of that year Sean was given an opportunity to start another radio show inside Mohawk College’s station, c101.5 FM. Sean and Josh decided to try something different and split the show between DrumnBass and Grime. “HOSTILE AIRWAVES” was born, and their first show aired Monday, November 15th 2004 with both hosts taking on separate rolls in the studio, Sean looking after the DrumnBass, and Enemee handling the Grime play lists. Every week the pair would receive a massive response while playing the Grime portion of the show. When the opportunity came to start a new show on 93.3 CFMU the pair jumped on it, inviting long time friends Devin Bass, Dj Trouble and D-Boi to host it. Hostile Airwaves now had two separate homes on the FM dial, broadcasting twice a week and hitting a much larger audience than before. With Monday nights play lists now completely dedicated to Grime, more key players in the Grime scene started showing interest in the show and contributing what they could to try and spread the word and push the sound in North America.
After deciding to take a break from promoting events in February 2005, Sean ended up in London, England where he had the pleasure of playing inside the infamous LIFE FM studio alongside hEALING CREW front-man, DJ Dozer with MC Wrekka, MC Lowqui, DJ Trace and Rymetime. After returning in March of that year, Sean was back inside c101.5 FM hosting Hostile Grime Sessions alongside Enemee.
