Before Chep became better known in the music edit business, we collaborated together mixing and editing a "Solar Records" medley (Early 80's). I was a DJ at Stars Roller Rink in the Bronx and also Feedback Director at SOS Record Pool (Rob Fernandez was owner) right off Castle Hill. It took us several sessions, first I mixed the entire thing at Stars - about 20 Solar artists starting around 110 RPM, finishing it around 130 RPM. Then came Chep's magic with a single razor and a small cutting board right at SOS. I still have the original reel to reel master and see all the cuts he made. It was a tragic loss. But he still lives in my memory every time I play that mix (it eventually was pressed by Disconect DJ service back in the day). I have it on my Serato playlist and it sounds just as fresh as the first day we did it. God rest your soul my friend - Fernando
