His family moved to Memphis,Tn. when Don was six years old. Don started taking piano lessons at the age of six from his aunt who wanted him to play in church. Don’s father, Maurice Crisp purchased an alto saxophone from local jazz musician Sonny Williams when Don was eight. Don played his first professional paying gig by the time he was 15. He also become proficient on the bass clarinet, electric bass, and the drum kit in high school which led to a music scholarship at the University of Memphis. He was strongly influenced by the unique blend of house music that was played and heard in San Francisco during the early nineties. The parties and the energy he experienced led to Don starting his own label and producing 3 EP’s on CRISP RECORDS. Currently Don has created CRISP RECORDINGS with the legendary DJ and producer DJ Ra-Soul.(Guy Nado) This collaboration has spawned two releases on CRISP which has found success on dance floors throughout the world and in the top 100 charts on Traxsource. Mr. Crisp is one of the most talented and underrated djs/producer in a market that has recently become saturated with fluff and filler. If you are a fan of quality track selection and heart felt production, then Don Crisp is one of the artists that you should keep an eye out for!
