    Story & How it all started...

    I've always wanted to DJ since I was pretty young, say like 8-9.
    Well at around the age of 12 I managed to get my first DJ gig at a friends 8th birthday party!
    Obviously at the time this was pretty epic. My first gig, but I had no gear & only a few cds.
    So I somehow managed to get together an 8 channel mixer, 2 cd players (of which one was an all in one high stack Sony Hi-fi!), a Pa system, A strobe light which I still to this day have, along with another couple of lights I managed to borrow.

    This was the first real taste of anything like this I had experienced. Even setting up the gear seemed pretty easy to me, even though it was my first time seeing a lot of the equipment, I just remember looking carefully & taking logical steps to put it all together & it all worked!

    "This is it" I remember thinking, everything just managed to go amazingly. I would just blend in the new tune with the upfaders & everynow & then put the strobe on & the kids would go crazy.

    I had headphones, but no way of pitching any of the songs, but this didn't matter.
    It was a great night, all the kids had fun, including me & still to this day I remember it in such vividness. Ok its only 15yrs ago, but a lots happened since then...

    I started playing the Bass at the age of 13 & Drums at the age of 14.
    DJing somehow didn't seem to have its hold over me tight enough at this point.

    Played the Drums until I was 18 and bass until I was 21, at the age of 20 I was offered the opportunity I had needed... Some Decks!

    I still have my bass (Fender Jazz) but she's a bit poorly & needs so major TlC.


    So the crazyness started just over 7yrs ago when I was 20!
    I'm now 27 :eek: & DJing is still getting better & better & more fun everyday.

    Here's pretty much a picture by picture update from early 2004 to Nov 2011...

    There's one thing i'm sure of, it will definately get more & more interesting as the years progress.

    I can't wait.

    Current setup - 2 x Technics 1200, DDM4000 w/ Innofader, MPD24, Conectiv, Xponent, Sennheiser HD-25, Dell Inspiron E1705, Custom OCuk Quadcore Pc. Cubase 5, Torq 2.0.2.

    The 1st setup

    Total cost 120. Managed to borrow 40+ House Vinyl & bought my first Liquid DnB records...
    *Edit* I found this older pic but its a bit blate :eek:


    Sony PSDJ9000 Direct Drive & Behringer VMX300


    Sony's replaced with Technics 1200 & New Dell Inspiron e1705 in preperation for buying Serato!


    I Moved house... Bought Torq 1.0.4 along with Conectiv ! What No Serato!


    Added an Odyessey L-stand.


    Moved to another house... At the same time I helped start a Pa Hire company w/ a friend...
    6k Bose in the living room!


    Also Purchased a 3.2ghz Quadcore OCuk Pc not long after moving in.


    Then Moved again... Coffin case purchased to protect my gear as I seem to be moving a lot!


    Haha Moved again... DDM4000, Xponent, MPD24 & another Odyessey L-stand added.


    You guessed it I've moved to another house. 2010


    Put everything in the spare room studio, added an Axiom 61

    At some point I also had a Midi Drum kit!

    The workhorse


    After all the moving & collecting of gear my current plans at the time were to move to Istanbul, Turkey!

    Still can't wait to get my hand on an Audio10...

    Cheers for taking a look.

    Peace

    In which case...

    Here's some cute kitten shots...

    No animals were harmed in the taking of these photo's & none of the photo's are staged.

    This is how they posed for the camera. Enjoy





    He seems to have a bit of an obsession with this TT, I often find him here.


    Don't tend to get many of this one, she's always running away


    Sleeping under the laptop


    He's got something about just sitting cutely & innocently.


    Some Serious deep sleep.


    Checking he wasn't dead :eek:


    Still sleeping!


    Admittidely for the last 3 photo's I had moved him to look like this, but he stayed like it for a good 30 mins ! lol

    Cheers for the props dude

    I'm guessing you mean this one.


    I was given it as a gift from a friend.
    However I have seen it & smaller versions at the local Uni Poster sales!

    Always worth giving them a look.
