I've been working for music for about a year and a half now, first by aquiring FL Studio 8 and making some (insanely lame) beats. i slowly drifted from producing but at the same time ever gained interest in electronica.
i first started out by getting hooked by happy hardcore about 2 years ago, and then it transitioned into mainstream club techno/rave tunes, and then from there my tastes started opening up to the likes of ambient works (like Aphex Twin) hard trance (such as Alien Project & Nish) and bits of dnb, progressive trance, etc. Around the beginning of last september i started becoming increasingly hooked by the house scene by the likes of Deadmau5, SpekrFreks. I quickly opened my options and became a huge house junkie for a good amount of time (and still am, now that i think of it).
Then last december i recieved my first turntables (an M-Audio Xponent & Torq), and my musical interests got huge jumpstart once again and ive been mixing nonstop for the past 3 1/2 months since. More recently ive fallen for the gritty genre of dubstep and increasing interest in drum n bass these recent days, but at this point i find myself at a fine balance of sub-genres to mix, and learning of new songs for each & every type all the time (after giving it some thought, i see myself with mainly dubstep for slow bits, house as my main middle tempo stuff, and hard trance as my faster energetic materiel)
Ive mixed approximately over 100 hours, while recording & just messing around with the decks (recording takes an especially long time), constantly experimenting with different songs, trying to find the best fit. I have 20 fully live mixed tracks (most of which are available on my soundcloud account) and about another 20 works in progress (some of which i may trash, switch out to mix with other songs, or just plain forget about)
Im also trying to find venues to perform at, for i need some real experience, and even though i may be an electronic DJ, i do enjoy other genres greatly as well, so i dont mind if i dont get to play what i really want to for a while, but in the end when i do my own shows i won't let the crowd dictate what i play (any self respecting DJ doesnt take requests) but i will defenitely try to be tasteful & play the best possible tracks i can to please everyone, and open up their eyes to new musical tastes (i certainly did that for myslef)
