The love for music began early for Dean. Early memories of flipping through his mother's record collection are still very much engrained. By the age of ten, Dean managed to save up his allowance to purchase his first pieces of music. Over the years from childhood to the late teens, Dean explored many different genres ranging from rock and pop, old-styled country, rap and hip-hop, the many forms of metal, to even symphony orchestras from the likes of John Williams and Phillip Glass. It was the discovery of electronic music in the mid-80s that fired a passion deep inside him, creating the music connoisseur that he remains as to this day. Thus, Dean-O-Matic was born.
In an electronic music scene that is increasingly influenced by abrasive sounds and the mediocre, the Dean-O-Matic sound embraces the mature styles of electronic music, fusing sets anywhere from two to five hours long, and encompassing many different genres that animate not only the feet to move, but to move the mind and soul. The journey really focuses on the mix, an artform that is getting lost in the translation by laptop DJs, and only a remaining few that can give back to a receptive dancefloor.
"2012 marks 25 years in electronic music. I am truly excited for the next 25 years."
"Let me take you on a trip... I can entertain!"
