Music has been in my life since I used to be a baby. My dad and mom at all times performed music in the home and I performed saxophone within the faculty band.

I had by no means actually been to an all-house music membership earlier than that and I instantly fell in love. I started to take fewer and fewer open-format gigs as I started to deal with digital music. My first time DJ’ing beneath the identify Spectre was 5 years in the past and I have never seemed again since.

It was superior, really! Knowing his fashion, I went in a barely completely different path and performed primarily home and tech with a bit little bit of progressive trance for my opening set. That manner people bought one thing apart from trance all evening lengthy. Also, earlier than this present I performed my first-ever all-vinyl set at a neighborhood/regional trance present my good friend and I began known as Queen City Trance.
