I can never understand why the hell a DJ or producer would talk about themselves in the 3rd person, for example: "Zeppelin is a class A bass whore", or "Zeppelin rather takes a fancy to straddling bass in a sexual manner. And if there's an audience then all the better...."
Once I start talking It will become apparent, rather rapidly, that I may not quite be all there with my mental faculties. Please be rest assured - I can promise that I don't present a significant risk unless I get excited.... : )
Still reading? Good. Now I know you're just as nutty like me, and who'll possibly be interested in my nutty music as well : )
I started loving heavy music when I was around 16-17, which arrived to me in the form of heavy metal , there are far too many artists to list but a few would include: Strapping Young Lad, Emperor, Machine Head, Fear Factory, Slipknot, and of course the bands before them: Metallica, Anthrax, Testament, Black Sabbath etc. It wasn’t long before I picked up a guitar and started learning how to play their tunes. Shortly after I left college at 18 I started playing in various metal bands as a rhythm guitarist, sometimes playing covers but mostly writing & performing our own material. The two main bands that I played in were called Skuzzle & Mind’s Dead More Alive, or MDMA for short ;-)
I was first introduced to underground dance around the age of 23, where I stumbled into a field and discovered the existence of outdoor free parties. I very quickly fell in love with the culture of underground raves & the music played there, and especially the harder & faster side of underground dance. And most definitely the tunes primarily driven by a heavy as fuck bassline ;-)
As I was a guitarist for several years before that mental summer, it was hardly surprising that I bought a pair of turntables, and started learning how to mix. Freeform was the first genre I started mixing, the fast-paced euphoric riffs & stomping kicks of NuEnergy records were quite literally the kick to my creative tendencies to start learning FL Studio 7 and start practising music production techniques & writing melodies & riffs. At the start of 2009, after I had been producing freeform for a year, I started jamming ideas for different genres, the likes of hard trance, psy-trance and schranz for example, but there was one genre amongst all that was jumping out at me.....
I had been collecting NRG records for a good 18 months at the start of 2011, and it was at this point I decided to focus on sculpting an original sound within the NRG genre for myself, and the first track that I produced with that mindset was "Siiiick". It was after the completion of Siiiick that I decided to switch my DAW to Ableton 8, and every tune after Siiick has been produced on this wicked little machine : ) Since my 1st release in February 2012 and to the end of the year 2013, I have had 10 releases across 6 separate NRG labels.
So there you have it. Have a listen for yourself dudes, I’m sure the music will speak for itself : )
