I've been a music fan from a very early age. My tastes in music are many and varied. I got into house music around 1987 - 1988 and first started DJing in 1989. Was a big fan of Acid House and the warehouse rave sounds. Loved the Madchester/Baggy era when there was a massive crossover with indie and house. I've been there as every different type of house music sub genre has come and gone or as many have developed and mutated into the different styles that are around today. I still love most of it and wouldn't want to limit myself to one particular genre although I still have a preference for big, uplifting sounds with plenty of energy. Love disco even though it's unfashionable. Funky House, French House, Deep House, Tech House, Detroit Techno, Acid House, Old Skool....the list goes on.
I've been producing for a few years and I'm continually learning new techniques and experimenting as I go along. I have a soft spot for analogue synth hardware which I always try to use in my tracks. Favourite pieces of equipment are the Moog Slim Phatty, Dave Smith Mopho and the Mode Machines x0xb0x. Just got hold of the Moog Minitaur and an Elektron Machinedrum.
Really excited by the developments in technology that mean that it's now possible for anyone to produce tracks. (I am a bit of a synth geek) Also the way people listen to music and how artists can use the Internet to gain exposure and a wider audience for their music. Everything is changing at an increasingly rapid pace and this too is exciting as who knows how music will develop. As long as it remains fresh and exciting I will still be DJing and producing till they carry me off in a box.
Would like to hear from other like minded DJs/Producers to exchange advice and tips and of course from any record labels interested in my tunes!!!!
