St. Louis radio Dj keeps hiphop art form alive

On-air radio personality, D-Ex, keeps the hiphop art form of deejaying and turntablism alive as he demonstrates his technique live on the air at KDHX 88.1 FM. A radio show called, Deep Krate Radio, hosted by D-Ex and Dj Iceman airs every Friday night from 9-11pm. These two dj's are part of an ensemble known as the Wax Murdaraz and they bring you the latest and all-time greatest hiphop sounds, songs, scratches and mixes live on the air nonstop.

Wax Murdaraz are a group of hip-hop musicians specialising in vinyl deejaying and music production. The group operates Wax Murdaraz Professional DJ Skool in St. Louis, Missouri training people in hip-hop deejaying.

Founding members (Da Fly) D-Ex and DJ Professional (formerly DJ Finesse) recorded a number of tapes together in the late 1980s under the name Pest Realm and released these tapes independently from 1989 to 1995.

The duo later adopted the alias "Wax Murdaraz" and in 1998 began constructing turntable "band" routines to present in a live format.

In 1999, D-Ex recruited deejays B-Money (who has since produced music for Jay-Z and 50 Cent), Furius "Iceman" Stylz, DJ K-Nine, Charlie Chan (former DJ for Da Brat; as of 2002, deejaying full-time for Darryl "DMC" McDaniels), and DJ Scratch protégé Mocha Sunflower. Wax Murdaraz went on to recruit battle legend King IXL in 2002.
