Hello there you my name is Ken Manuel... I'm origanlly from Milwaukee,WI! MIL TOWN YEAYYY! THROW YA SETS UP!!!! ^6^ anyhow I use Virtual DJ,Acid Pro,Ableton, and finally Fl Studio 12... I can't really give all the specs of my laptop but it has windows 10 and and i7 core and so much more... dude spent 7 hundoow on it so i kno its good.... I have plugins such as gross beat,harmor,sylenth1,nexus, and ni massive I use to mix remix and create the instrumentals u here today and the past.... i havent spent a dime on my tools somehow I've been Blessed by something whom I choose to call God with them... anyhow... thats what I use... I know nothing of reading music or writing it... when I make it I generally go by ear and what I feel on the inside... I do what my heart is telling me when I make an instrumental and when I mix if it's a vocal I try to hear the melody and listen to the lyrics as to get a point across or throw some sort of emotion to the listener somehow in anyway shape or form with my Spirit... sometimes it makes sense sometimes it's scattered but given the titles to the mixes or tracks I try to make a point as each thing is put out... due to my inboxes and thank you's from people I guess I'm getting messages across so stay I will... I do what I do and make what I make not only just to spread a message of Hope and Love but to help other's with thier inner struggles as well cuz i know how it feels to be hurt... music is an art... it is an expression of self in no matter what form it is... Electro, Drum and Bass. Garage, Jump up, Jungle, Dubstep Pop ,Rap Country, Rock, Alternative you name it it's an art... I came here to show my art in a way one DJ that used to be on here expressed she thought someone should try... that DJ was Carrie Lopez... she said alot of the mixes that were presented didn't make sense or have any true meaning behind them or were just blindly coming on here... I laughed at her statement behind the scenes cuz my first mix was called "Echoes Of My Dreams"... but I took her advice... and here I am today! But what she failed to realize is like in my previous statement is we are all works of art in all fashions and all have a purpose on this site... but that's a whole nother topic I'm not gonna go off on hah! Anyhow my point is people talked crap about her and she did deathstep and now she's gone... the house needed her too fore she was her own work of art! I think we all need to form unity and embrace each other in my opinion cuz that's what the human race strives for... to LOVE in some sort of fashion wether it be love yourself.... love in intimacy, family, friendship, ect. I've been throgh alot...but I can't post it cuz it's too graphic for this site... inbox me and I'll share but my full on point is what I've been through has given me a pain so deep and a hurt so deep that I've gone through enough to know that what Love is from what Love wasn't if that makes any sense... and since I was a teenager I wanted to share it with the world! because I realized that society as a whole can be very programmed to think a certain way and believe certain things that are un-true from prior experiences... I say this cuz my whole life I believed I was a piece of shit,that I don't belong here,that I am worthless,useless,and good for nothing... in 2009 I was run over by a train,17 cars ran me over in Frame Park in Waukesha,WI and I survived without a scratch on me... WTF? still I carried on believing those things due to what was done to me or at least that's what I think may be causing those thoughts cuz sometimes I still feel that way that's why I disappear out of this site so much just so you all know... I end up hurting myself and go someplace where they try to help me... yea... hopefully I will not be judged for that cuz I'm pouring my heart out here but anyhow due to the fact I get those inboxes from people and their thanks for helping them and touching their hearts... it's shown me I just might have a gift here... and a mission that must keep on going~! I'll stop going on with my story but I will finish with saying "We are all angel's but with one wing, and can only fly embracing each other!" Saw that in a chicken soup for the soul book lol All the DJ's here have touched my heart and like I tell people to pay it forward well that's what I'm here for as well... cuz before I joined I was just a listener in the backround makin crappy loops from scratch under the name DJ Special K on purevolume.com and this site helped me out thru the years while I was just listening... It rubbed off on me,inspired me,released my tears,my angst when i needed to scream... even gave me hope in some mixes... so I am here to Pay It Forward... and give to you what you all give to me... so don't thank me let me Thank You! And whatever your style give it your all and always, ALWAYS FOLLOW YOUR HEART and STAY TRUE TO YOURSELF! Take care and I Love Ya All! Cheers!
