I started getting into music at the age of 9, using my Amiga 500+, using a programme called Octamed. I used this programme to create hardcore drum beats.
I got my first set of decks at 14, which were Ragged Beltdrive Citronix (which had pennies blu-tacked to the needle heads). It frustrated me because I wanted to do more than mix one song into the next. I was alway interested in cutting my mixes up, but I was limited because of the hardware I had on offer.
I then got my first windows based pc and the limits weren't there anymore. I had Virtual DJ and DSS DJ. There were also loads of acapellas on offer and more effects, which I found easier to use to create better mixes and mash ups for my friends for parties, their own pleasure and work. I then got a bit bored with these programmes because I wanted to do more. I then stumbled across Propellerhead Reason in 2005.
My curiosity was peaked! I had no idea how to use it, but was intrigued by it and the possibilities. I persevered and through trial and error (and hard work and dedication; and 7 years later!). I also use Recycle 2.1 to slice, dice and chop tunes into remixes that might provoke a different reaction than is brought by the original.
I have now reached a point where I believe that my music is good enough to be heard by you guys! Having read your comments and criticisms, I take the lot on board. If anyone wants to inbox me about samples etc. please let me know.
Just stay TUNED.!
