Need a gift for a gifted musician?
Travismode aka Killbox began his love affair with electronic dance music in the early 90's. This new found passion/hobbie would bring him to many incredible showcases and festivals of EDM talent fueling his motivation to put forth his own contribution to the community. In the late 90's under the DJ moniker bLENDed TM finally bought his first set of turntables where he quickly learned and mastered the art of beat matching among a dabble of self taught scratching and beat juggling techniques. Striving for more of a hands on approach to his musical ideas TM eventually started experimenting with analog drum machines and computer software. Purchasing his first piece of hardware - Rolland MC303, neighbored with a series of old casio keyboards and a speak 'n' spell. In 2001 after graduating high school he teamed up with fellow classmates/friends and self proclaimed djs Nick Wall (Nicodemus) and James Wegter (JIMM) to create Bassland collective. After ten years of organizing and setting up shows in and around PDX TM decided to take his love of EDM production/composition one step further and getting serious with his favorite sub-genres within the music but specifically focusing on techno, techhouse, and ambient electronic sounds.
