“I guess DJing became appealing for me when I first heard mixing by DJ Ian FFord back in 97′. I had been going to Goth clubs for about three years and got use to the whole fade in fade out process of mixing, that hearing Ian beat match Goth, industrial and new wave all came as a shock to me. By that time I had acquired a rather descent CD collection and had been making mixtapes, just really fooling around with music… nothing spectacular, but what I did notice was that whenever I was was hanging out with a friends where there was a tape player, I’d flip on a tape and my friends would be enjoying the music. As time passed I grew to love watching people dance to my mix tapes. They were enjoying themselves and I was responsible for it. Later that year, one of my closest friends, Jerry, was having a birthday and asked me to DJ. I did and loved every minute of it. Now years later, I’m still loving it. I’ve DJed in clubs like Downtime, the Pyramid and CBGB’s. It even got me wanting to learn sound editing for film. It’s hard to really express my feeling for the art. To be responsible for helping people have a good time. For those of you who love art (photography, painting, drawing, dancing, etc…) think about how you feel when your doing it and then think about how you feel when your commended for doing it. That’s how I feel about DJing.”
