Royalé Court Music

Beats for sale, beats for when it about that Trap.
Robert Royale (Royalé Court Music Chicago) F.K.A. DJ Big Rub of Chicago's Warehouse Night Club was first introduced to the House music business by watching "Bam Bam" Westbrook in the mid 80's when he created Westbrook Records with legendary House Music artist Mike Dunn & Armando on the Southside of Chicago.
Legendary sound reinforcement designer Dwayne Woods/Earthquake Sounds would have a pre-teen Robert assisting with setting up the best sound systems around Chicago (The Power House, Gallery 21, McCormick Place & more).
Royale attended C. V. S. H. S. , where he met and became friends with now House legend Glenn Underground; then joining his House Crew "Xstacy". During this time, the young aspiring producer/DJ secretly would help local producer Warlord create for Legendary artist such as (Tongue) Twista and D.A. Smart. This circle would lead to his association with Titan Guillotine Davis, back in the 80's.
His cousin Krashman aka (Krash, the first rap artist to get a major deal in Chicago) would take him to all the parties and expose him to the true underground scene called "House"; then in his later years, teaching Royale production techniques he learned from Puff's "Hitmen," like the art of loop slicing , to re-arrange a loop. These skills he still uses today in music, along with the sampling tricks Royale learned from now Gorilla's frontman Jamie Principal.
Royale decided to enroll in the local community college, that was notorious for their radio station Kennedy-King College, DJing on 89.3 fm WKKC's Friday Night Audio & co-hosting a show called "The New Music Review".
During his college years, he would experiment with the fusion of Hip Hop beats and poetry; working along aspiring word-smith Kwesi. Not knowingly preparing him for his future re-encounter with high school brother Malik Yusef.
Next The Cliff Levingston's Riviera & The Crobar would become his first clubs to debut his skills.
His brother K Alexi Shelby would then bring him into The Warehouse Night Club (and DJ International) family for his first residency for the Legendary "Sunday Service".
This allowed him to work side by side with many legends (Craig Loftis, (Uncle) Joe Smooth, Armando, Mike Dunn, Gene Hunt, Ron Carroll, Emanuel Pippin, Andre Hatchett, Julian Jumpin' Perez, Bad Boy Bill, Peace RTG, DJ Cowboy and Hugo Hutchinson).
Robert learning more about the Chicago scene would land a job as the pressman for Trax Records (yes, he actually pressed vinyl records, some of which you may remember. Johnny Fiasco, Mark Farina & D.J. Chunk-A-Buds' 90's Hit "Zig-Zag" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HPXlPgUORU4
& the white labels Lost Records, Record Review
Mike Dunn's "Beat that Shit" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mHhFu2aj7uw
& more). Larry Sherman took such a liking to the young Royale (then Big Rob) and moved him into the Trax Records Mansion in Hyde Park (that has now become President Barak H. Obama residence). Larry Sherman working close with legendary entertainment lawyer Jay B. Ross introduced the two (Robert would debut Ross's artist Black Magic during his WKKC radio days) giving a young Royale a legal up in the House Music scene keeping him at least secure from the negativity of the industry in Chicago.
Later The Clique (The Epitome/E2's) Night Club would bring him on board. Followed by Mike Dunn giving his fellow Warehouse brother a spot at The Convent, spinning Hip Hop and RnB.
Cajmere aka Green Velvet purchased his first single "Kick Da H0es Out Da House" (that was an anthem originally made for Peace RTG's 5.0 car club 2 Xtreme.
Nepenta Records released the second (Chicken Head E.P.) https://www.discogs.com/DJ-Big-Rub-Chicken-Head-EP/release/75555 or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=so-PJHq-M6Q
By this time was DJing regularly throughout the city: Tues. night Open Mic at the Millennium Club, Wed. Night at The Clique, Thurs. night upstairs in The Warehouse "Loft", Friday nIght back at the Clique in "The Comedy Clique" room (befriending Deray Davis, Deon Cole, B. Cole, Sheree Luckett, Leon Rogers, Teddy Carpenter, Earthquake and others), Royale would go on to lay the future foundation of how the BET network would edit the comedians on their station, by creating what was called "Street Comedy" (Volumes 1 and 2). These street comedy anthems featured Tony Schofield, Leon Rogers, B. Cole, and up and coming Deon Cole.
But back to his passionSat. nights would be great for Royale as a young DJ, opening up the Clique, then going to rock the Warehouse Loft all night long.
When the Warehouse closed and re-opened at the Prop House; then Big Rub (aka B.R. Baby of 6.0.6 Entertainment Inc.), would rock the back room every weekend building it up with other Go Gettas like Sundance, The Chocolate Jocks, and DJ G-Spot.
He also dealt in Hip Hop, as an un-official member of the Mainframe. He produce and did remixes for the underground Chicago rap scene.
Running with Just Ro, SUN, J.U.I.C.E., Ang 13, Tha G.U.V., The Mainframe, and other Go Ill rhyme spittas he performed on stages with Redman, Keith Murray, and Helter Skelter (aka Tha Boot Camp Clique), Big Les (BET's Rap City).
His talents lead to him producing for Nike, "The Game of Life" with G.O.O.D. Music's Grammy Award winner Malik Yusef (exec. produced by Grammy nominated Terry Hunter) and an unreleased hip hop song with Chicago House Music Legend Gene Hunt, rapping under the moniker Minista G. https://soundcloud.com/user963399346/my-mind-is-a-prison-feat-minista-g-aka-dj-gene-hunt
He then went on to co-create 6.0.6. Entertainment Inc.; with friends Steve Smitty G. Smith and Kelly Nino Ross Orsby. They helped cultivate the young talents of DEFWish( Def Jones aka Hellcat Jones), King Bingo (360)
