I was born in 1972 and as soon as I could, I was listening to a pocketradio and at an age of 11 I was starting to record songs from the radio and had a microfoon juist doing so as a radio DJ.
At school I was a DJ at schoolparty's and had succes due to my variety of taste of music. My big dream was to became a radio DJ. But then my live changed a bit. Doing other things and at the early 90's I was making my own house, hardcore and trance music at the computer with famous MOD-tracker programs.
Those where the pioneering days. Even a few tracks made it at the dancefloor, but again I did not take the change to make something about my new discovered talents and having fun with creating my own music.
Until now, I have found the internet with a lots of handy audio-mixing- and producing tools, such as Ableton Live. But I would also like to build up a small home studio in the future. And this time I am sure I am going to do something I always wanted to do. Just making the music I would like to make and let's see what kind of opportunities there are to do it this time. ;-)
I am always enjoying the work of DJ's/producers and I would like to mention 2 of them specially: Ben Liebrand, because he is a great person and a bit of legend in bringing the mixing stuff to the people at large and inspiring a lot of DJ's. And I would like to mention MA5A, because I believe he is a natural talented gifted person in bringing the right spirit to his music and DJ work, just because he is as pure as you can get.
