With a career that began in the early '70s, Lovebug Starski has performed in nearly every hip-hop club throughout the New York area. Born in the Bronx, Starski began his career as a record boy in 1971. After years on the scene Starski became the house DJ at the famed club Disco Fever in 1978. Soon thereafter he began deejaying at Club Harlem World and the Renaissance. Branching out to vinyl, Starski recorded his first single, "Positive Life", on Tayster records. Soon after he recorded the soundtrack to the 1986 film Rappin' on Atlantic Records before recording his first lp, House Rock, on Epic. A five-year jail sentence curtailed Starski's activities throughout the late '80s, but in the '90s he began DJing again with old pal DJ Hollywood.
