PopTop Rising originally from Minneapolis, Minnesota USA. I'm a Audio Visual (DJ/ VJ/Lighting Designer) artist and a visionary. I began working in Nightclubs at age 16 (1989) as a Concert & Disco Lighting Designer, 3 years later at 19 I started teaching myself how to DJ, mix and program club music of different kinds , mainly Electronic Dance and haven't stop learning since. From 1993 to 2005 I mainly worked at First Avenue & 7th Street Entry( the club featured in the movie Purple Rain starring Prince) as a Concert/Nightclub Lighting Designer Programmer and Operator, Resident DJ, Video Jockey and Stage Tech. In the late 90's I played and hosted my own show in First Ave's VIP Room called "Erotic City #2" a Prince themed dance night with Electronic music included. I also performed and worked at other Minneapolis clubs, events and raves. After moving to Seattle, Washington USA in 2005 I began Djing at clubs and events, after being booked regularly as a DJ at Contour Nightclub I was hired as a Stage Manager, Lighting Designer/operator, programmer,tech and Soundman. Also while at Contour I was a resident DJ and in my off time I performed at clubs,raves and festivals such as Day out of Time, Kandyland, Last Supper Club, Trinity, Vela, and the Summer boat cruises. Also at Contour I hosted my own show called "The Flashing Universe" which featured local area talent playing verus genres of Electronic music. Also while in Seattle I was a member of Free Ur Mind Productions and Emerald City Entertainment. Now I'm in Sweden after a short stay in Minneapolis, starting all over again, I love many kinds of music from around the globe.
Yet I have a deep passionate love affair with electronic dance music since a kid. I play House, Trance, Progressive, Tribal, Tech/Minimal, Deep Techno, Electro, Breaks, Euro-Dance, Psy, NRG/ Hard House, I'm into many sounds, yet have some major fave's! My goal is to produce my own tracks, work and perform with artist from Sweden, around the world and the best of the best. Thanks!!! Namaste!!!!
