I’ve been mixing for a bit over 7 years now, and each time I remember to update this section I look at what I previously wrote and shake my head. The evolution of my taste, skills and preferences harbours a similar relationship.
“With 3 decks and a head full of philosophy, I'm ready to take on the world.” 2014
Nowadays I mostly mix for my own fascination and satisfaction. I think I’m fabulous at what I do, but I really don’t think there is an obvious space that my style of mixing is suited for. I hardly go out anymore, so my sound is becoming more and more a niche commodity, which I’m proud of.
After years of avoiding rekordbox, I decided to use it, and that has definitely been an interesting new string to my bow. Seeing waveforms and creating loops combined with mixing less regularly messed with my head for a long time, but I’ve definitely since overcome that challenge and have the fruits to show for it.
I hope you enjoy 2017 Josh the DJ.
