Blackburn, United Kingdom
Im Johnny, I'm 28 and I play house music.
I base my style on the deeper shades of house, always including elements of groove and often progressing into the realms of tech house.
Initially wary, I have now embraced the "laptop DJ revolution". I believe that using tools such as Ableton and Traktor should enhance a DJs performance. It allows for much more creativity and style to shine through in each set. I do not think that it should matter how a DJ delivers a mix, as long as the music played is played in such a way that it works the crowd and creates moments not to be forgotten.
All of my mixes are recorded in real time with volume control, EQs and FX manually controlled on the fly to avoid the overly clean sound of a strictly automated mix.
I currently use my Pioneer DJM800, Novation Launch Pad, Nocturn and Xone 1D to create my mixes, layering up to 4 tracks together with percussion elements included on the fly.
I hope you enjoy them.
