No need to go on and on about who i think i am, or who others think i am...i will
say that i have believed in the power of EDM since youth, and for sure feel its
universalness...which brings me to the now! Today, i choose EDM (electronic dance
music) as a medium to carry out a clear message: to always give back, to be more
conscious, and to bring more peace and love on earth...It all starts with the
self, and your own universe...If you know, accept, and love yourself, then you
will clearly see it in others and around you...EDM has the power to gather, and
take you on a self voyage like no other music, all due to its abstractness and
trance inducing beats, rhythms, harmonies, and melodies...Why do i believe in
this music? Listen and find out for yourself...Much love, always
I have been a music lover for a long as I can remember, even in my very young days I was fascinated by SKA and punk, suffering the gturn that bloody downh from my parents every day.
I was first turned onto house music when I was 16 and playing a few tracks at the local ice rink in 1986/87 such things as jack your body blew me away as it was quite different to the general pop music that was floating around at that time.
Left school and started college in 1988 at the same time as the house / acid scene really kicked off in my home town of Blackpool and the general NW of England and that was it, I was officially hooked. I spent the initial couple of years travelling to various clubs in the area and dancing past sunrise at illegal warehouse parties. A friend bought some decks late in 1989 and wefd all play around gtryingh to emulate what the DJ's of the time were doing with varying degrees of success. After a month or so I was totally hooked so saved a few weeks wages and bought a pair of 1210s and a mixer and that was it.
Continued to play at various parties and the odd club gig for a number of years, going through various genres but really fell into the progressive groove which I still play now. I have always liked tracks with a harder edge but not so as to it being just a load of noise that has no melody or makes no sense to me.
Discovered Ableton in 2005, messed around with the trial version for a couple of weeks but couldnft get my head around it, there was little info on the DJ side of things at that time. Discovered abletonlivedj.com later that year and havenft looked back since.
Nowadays I tend to play a blend of prog, tech and techno with the odd bit of breaks here and there taking influences from all sorts of people & places, anything that takes my fancy really.
