"Dave « D-Styles » Cuasito began his musical career in one of the great incubators of Dj style and skill: the San Francisco Bay Area of the 1980s. Like hundreds of other Filipino American teenagers, D-Styles started off with a mobile dj crew – San Jose’s Sound City – spinning at garage parties, school dances, weddings, etc. Those party-rockin’ roots would become a core part of his musicality but by the mid-80s, he also began to develop a love for scratching. Competitions and showcase events brought him in contact with other like-minded djs, including members of the turntablist squads he’d become most associated with: the Invisibl Skratch Piklz and Beat Junkies.
As renown as D-Styles has been as a member of the Piklz, it’s easy to overlook his prolificness as a solo artist. He’s produced tracks for Third Sight and lent out his scratch talents to everyone from The Grouch to Greyboy to Dj Kentaro. Bachir’s The Only Mixtape can’t include every song D-Styles has blessed but in both its breadth and depth, it pays proper homage to a Dj whose wax fondling now span three decades and counting."  Rayon du Fond
