Im Johnny, I'm 29 and I play house music.

Originally vinyl based, I currently use a mixture of Ableton, Traktor Scratch Duo and CDJs when recording promos and playing live gigs, and implent EFXs to keep things fresh and bring out the most of each tune.
Initially wary, I have now embraced the "laptop DJ revolution". I believe that using tools such as Ableton and Traktor should enhance a DJs performance. It allows for much more creativity and style to shine through in each set. I do not think that it should matter how a DJ delivers a mix, as long as the music played is played in such a way that it works the crowd and creates moments not to be forgotten.
All of my mixes are recorded in real time with volume control, EQs and FX manually controlled on the fly to avoid the overly clean sound of a strictly automated mix.
I currently use my Pioneer DJM800, Novation Launch Pad, Nocturn, Native Instruments Maschine and Allen & Heath Xone 1D to create my mixes, layering up to 4 tracks together with percussion elements included on the fly.
I hope you enjoy them.
