Rest In Beats: DJ Elroy Boogie

November 13, 1986 - August 18, 2013

This past Sunday, the Houston area lost our friend Elroy Boogie (born Roy Samano) after battling lung cancer. He was one of the coolest people you could meet, who had some serious skills in his short six year DJ career. He was a member of the Kracker Nuttz, a local DJ collective that featured a hand full of Houston's best DJ's. Early this year he placed 3rd in the Red Bull Thre3Style DJ competition that was held here in Houston. We will truly miss this giant in the community. I would usually see him smiling or laughing, and he brought out the same in others with his witty sense of humor.

"When they say: live each day like it's your last one. It's not just some free pass to go nuts. When you live each day like it's your last one... You move with the conviction of a man with purpose and passion. You treat people - strangers, family, and friends as if this day, and this moment is the last impression they will ever have of you... of your legacy." - Elroy Boogie

Following the short interview that was caught on tape by Damien Randle, check out a recording of his set from the Red Bull Thre3Style competition.
