Being born and raised in Gary, IN, Allen Upshaw AKA Mix-Master Einstein picked up his musical tastes from his family consisting of rap, R&B, jazz, and blues but then heI took interest in what is commonly referred to as old school house music.
He studied and learned the basic techniques of mixing by listening to the Hot Mix 5 on WBMX in Chicago, IL.
The Hot Mix 5 consisted of Kenny “Jammin'” Jason, Ralphi “The Razz” Rosario, Scott “Smokin'” Sills, Farley “Funkin'” Keith (BKA Farley “Jackmaster Funk”), and Mickey “Mixin'” Oliver.
Allen’s favorite was Ralphie Rosario because of his smooth transitions between songs and the choice of music he would mix. He started mixing at the age of 13 and is still mixing music of varying genres to this day.
