I first stood behind a pair of turntables at 18, having just received my first grown-up present. Unashamedly, I spun Happy Hardcore for four years, narrowly avoiding the Trance scene by a hair’s breadth. After finally maturing out of Hardcore, I took a two year sabbatical from music until digital DJ software first reared its ugly head and I started to fiddle with Traktor DJ Studio 2
I now rock the X1s and pretend I’m Richie Hawtin, playing Techno, Tech House and a sprinkling of Progressive House in The Cave, a super secret venue in West Yorkshire. I guess I’ve been quite inspired by my time at clubs like Sankeys, Mint and Back2Basics, wanting to play driving, bouncy sounds and hoping my passion is infectious to the crowd. I do enjoy a spin on the old turntables or CDJs once in a while.
My current setup is:
- Macbook Pro 13 inch
- Traktor Scratch Pro 2
- 2x NI Kontrol X1
