Never as a youngster in a million years did I ever think I'd be mixing dance tunes .....My love was ( still is a bit ) heavy rock / thrash metal . Seen em all from AC/DC to ZZ Top , it then all changed seeing Metallica in 84 , then a few years later Slayer.The energy was addictive . Used to make compilation tapes for my friends . It wasn't until attending an Ozric Tentacles concert did it all change again. It was in the very early start to the 90's. Eat Static were support , I witnessed a concert crowd mutate into a full blown dance event . Now , as a kid , I was brought up on the likes of Bowie , Queen , Donna Summer 10cc , disco and then Jean Michelle jarre . I think those seeds sown as a youngster were suddenly surpassed my love of heavy rock that night on the dance floor that night as Eat Static had me dancing like a loon. I was hooked . From then on , visited all manner of hedonistic parties - Megadog , Return To the source ect ect ...that worm grew . So , as I always loved making mix rock tapes I decided to try ( still trying ) mixing Goa and Psy trance - with Sony discman ! The rest is history . My efforts may not be brilliant , but if at least one of the tunes I use catches the ear then its all good . I'm humble to be able to be given the opportunity to try and mix such wonderful , energetic shamanic dance tunes and totally besotted by this genre nearly 30 yrs on . Flight deck is made up of four 1000mk 3s a djm 800 mixer , recording onto a basic Sony home cd burner .The levels may slightly alter - although matched on monitors - bloody thing has a mind of its own !. I've also just started separately using a Numark Mixdesk Express . I use the Mixdesk as a basic set up , no pc or Serato , but using Mp3 sticks via Mixdesk onto an Mp3 recorder - a Dj Tech , Dj Rec . IF all goes well I aim to start using the Dj Rec on the 1000's keeping a tighter hold over recording level control. No matter what system tho , I still refuse to use any corrective programs or editing on any set up , so what you hear is totally real , warts ,mistakes included . I just hope my mixes tickle the space between your ears - GOA / PSY TRANCE always has , and always will be my RELIGION !! However ..... I'll still remain Slayer until I die . BOOMSHANKA!
