Career

Tittsworth established his own record label, T&A Records, in 2006 with his partner, DJ Ayres. [2] T&A Records has played an important role in cultivating multiple movements in dance music, especially Baltimore club and Moombahton.

Tittsworth has released over a dozen vinyl records, including Ammo's last release [3] (A-Trak's battle imprint), a highly sought after white Serato record [4] and a variety of dance records since 2005. [5]

Tittsworth's debut album is called 12 Steps. [6] [7] The LP featured Pitbull, Nina Sky, Kid Sister and The Federation. The Pitbull collaboration predated the EDM influx and gained the eye of the Ministry of Sound. Follow up songs included the moombahton track Pendejas, [8] with Alvin Risk. He also collaborated with Alvin Risk and Maluca on La Campana, which appeared in FIFA 12.

In 2010, Tittsworth helped open, as co‐owner, U Street Music Hall. [1] U Street Music Hall was named as a top ten venue in the US by Rolling Stone as of 2013. [9] Tittsworth would be a critical part of the club's operations, bookings and artist liaison for the first two years, and would also DJ dozens of nights in its first five years. [10]

In 2014, Tittsworth released a single, "Que Fresca", [11] with reggaeton veteran DJ Blass. His next single "After The Dance" featured Q-Tip and Theophilus London and was lauded by critics as "A timeless dancefloor motivator that would fit as well in a set with say "Rapture" as "Step Into A World". [12] He has appeared on worldwide festivals, from ADE [13] to raves like Hard Day of the Dead. [14]
