Whats In My Record Bag
Who I Follow
Who Follows Me
GKP is another amateur DJ who may someday take his hobby to new heights.
GKP started bedroom DJing with a laptop in January 2010 using Traktor Studio and a Behringer BCD2000. He's since been steadily learning how to get the best from his entry level hardware having upgraded to a Numark N4 after 2 years. Currently the M-Audio Xponent controller is a stand-in for the N4.
After roughly 12 months of almost daily practice GKP felt he was ready to rock a crowd and formed the 'Dance Off Your Turkey' annual boxing night gathering alongside local established Birmingham DJs Mr Lewis, Ste-Jay and EC1.
It is in the long view for GKP to some day rock a crowd of 10,000, after which he'll feel comfortable that his goal has been reached.
Influences? broad topic!
My first brush with producing was when I was still at high school in the early 90s, respect where it's due to G-Man Taylor, Yamaha keyboards, Fostex Reel to Reel, Yamaha TG300 and the legendary Atari Mega ST. Things have evolved somewhat since those days (*grins*).
The first 1210s I played on back in 2000ish belonged to Leon Goffe - he used to be a junglist DJ but has since had a nasty bang to the face and now plays a friggin guitar in Spain - Rock on dude!!
"Ste-Jay", "Mr Lewis", "EC1" and "Ideosphere" - If it wasn't for you guys post 2010 I'd forever be hitting sync and never have learnt how to properly match two beats.
"Shotty" - dunno if you've influenced me or if it's the other way around; probably a bit of both if we're honest. Your Roland 303 beats were pretty crap back in 2001, when we met, after landing the same job at Sonic - but I had faith as I could hear what you were trying to achieve. Now, many years on, I can visit your studio and churn out a professional co-production, 'big' nice one!
Back in the day, recording off the radio in my young teens - "Ellis Dee", "Ratty", "Grooverider", "Kenny Ken", "Mickey Finn", "Top Buzz", "SS", "Slipmat", "DJ EZ", All the DJs off the pirate stations in and around the West Midlands between 1990 and 1997 slinging Old Skool Hardcore/Rave day and night! This is where my interest in EDM was seeded. I was very much into Jungle and liked most drum and bass with a reggae/dancehall element. UK Garage was also a favourite before the Grime and Dubstep New Skool era entered my ears. Now I like all the above as well as Electro, House, Breakbeat, and quite a spread between 60 and 190BPM.
