United States of America
When I was a kid (way back in the 80s) I used to record all my favorite songs off the radio and then use a dual-cassette deck to make mix tapes. I started doing small events as a DJ back in 2002.
I currently have a one hour mixshow on Tuesday & Thursday at 5PM on c89.5 FM in Seattle (http://c895worldwide.com/web/
). Generally speaking I just mix a selection of my favorite current tracks off of the stations' Top 40 with some new releases, the occasional throwback hit, and some of my own mashups (http://soundcloud.com/djlightray
). I tend to favor electro house/pop remixes.
I currently DJ every Tuesday night on the main floor of Neighbours Nightclub. In addition I DJ around town at various dance clubs, such as Neighbours, Club Vogue, and The Baltic Room, in a guest DJ capacity. At this time I am actively looking for a second more permanent position due to the closure of the club space I previously DJ'd at a second night of the week.
