How do all!? My gov name is
Timothy Penfold Schmidt aka DJ Tokz formerly DJ Toax from Santa Barbara.
I got my start there in the 1993 when introduced to DJ Yoshi and the Justice League. Being in places at key times like the first full moon at Bonny Dune Beach, Raving on the lawn of the federal building in Los Angeles-also being shot with rubber bullets there, the parade blaring out beachball at EDC, Insomniac, Epic, R.A.W. With fishing weights taped to his stylus just scratching it up!
Watching Simply Jeff and Donald Glaude battle and of course just smoking bowls with DJ Dan... Mid to late 90’s I team up with DJ’s Nukie, Chryptic, Vinnie and Yoshi to create Beatnix Labs subsonic record label. In full swing we are residents at 4-5 different clubs a week-Wildcat, Chameleon, Zelo and ???
It was the 90’s while on the weekends headlining at other local events in the mountains and at the beaches. One mountain party gets me a on the spot interview with Locus Magazine! The label releases its first pressing of NuSkoolBreaks that gets the eye of and reviewed in bpm magazine/5-5 just awesome! 1999 I get married and slow down my gigs to 2002-2005ish
I retire to focus on my marriage. 2010 I find the radio station Nsbradio.co.uk full of great artists and free breaks mixes! 2012
Severe back injury 2013 reconstruction of my spine at that point I sell all my gear to pay bills figuring I’d never mix again... 2014 Brain injury-2015-16 Taking us to mid 2017 where I start to remember who I am or was or wanted to be???
Keep in mind from 2010-2017 I’m living on Nsbradio they’re nonstop shows and talent kept me going! So my first thought was to give back by getting my own show.
Smoke Break With DJ Tokz starts August 2017 and has been a platform along with my other shows, The Variety Mixed Up Show, 2 Steps Ahead, Smoke Break from Coast2Coast, Alone Sessions, The Electronic Healing Infusion Shows and now Smoke Break at night. Launching dozens of careers and beats that need to be heard!

Co-Host of the new show SBC Sessions on We Get Lifted Radio or www.wegetliftedradio.com but my main goal..... To have fun! Sorry for the huge intro! Thanks for having me!
