22 year old Hugo Blackburn is a House DJ.
DJ stands for Disc Jockey, not someone who can produce or can stare at a laptop and thats exactly what Hugo Blackburn is. A Disc Jockey.
Hugo is something you dont see often behind the decks anymore, as the modern days DJ may well know his way around ableton or logic but not around a dancefloor. This is quite opposite to Hugo's approach. Hugo is a DJS DJ, and with a record collection any discogs collector would indulge in, his knowledge and track selection is second to none; knowing exactly what the crowd wants before even they do. Hugo is a masterclass behind the decks and some would say more comfortable with behind a pair of turntables than anywhere else.
What you see is what you get with Hugo. A real music enthusiast who would happily pick vinyl over any other luxury in life and that shows with his record collection baring over 1,000 records of all varieties of House and Techno.
With Hugo being the ripe age of 22 and studio time & Production on the top of his agenda and with 909s, 606s and a collection of synths at his disposal you would be stupid to think that these wont be some next level shit!
Words: Albion Records.
