I started producing dance music in my early teens in 2000 putting sounds together on various PC programs familiarising myself with the technology. I produce dance music of many genres usually its the ambient side that I have kept to and lots of my earlier tracks give off that style. I have had airplay scattered over time mainly on niche internet stations that cater for my sound. I currently produce minimal and chilled drum n bass which I feel suits my style well, I also dabble in the ambient sides of House, Trance, Future Jungle to name but a few.

I am looking for a label to best represent my music as well as airplay. I am also up for collaboration with artists of the same style on youtube.

Feedback is much appreciated.

    big room house thats a new one on me. sounds a lot like trance but slower anyway when this track gets going it really gives the listener something to grab onto this is one of them tracks you can go back and listen to time again

    @Pizzo420: lol it is meant to be quite simplistic :) have a listen to Boards Of Canada - Everything You Do Is A Balloon... its on youtube. I based this tune on that. Its basically a couple of melodies that build up and up, fade away, come back, build up and thats it

    @beatfluence: thanks for your comment :) glad you enjoyed it. I left the beat how it was my inspiration for this tracks was Boards Of Canada who used to put more emphasis on the melody and arrangement and leave the rather rough and ready beat to chug along
