As a DJ, I not only create a sound collage of rhythm, tempo, and emotions. I am able to take the time to study human behavior: the group of people in my environment and understand what they want and need and then delivery.
It all started back in the early 1970’s when I would steal my big sisters reel to reel player and for hours I would be fascinated with how the reels would rotate. When I learned the reel to reel could record I was impressed with the sounds I was able to capture.
Over the years as I progressed and as technology changed the way I DJ, I am challenged with a feeling of withdraw. I feel I am cheating the system when I do mobile Djing. Under normal conditions, such as a even walk way, a ramp, or a short flight of stairs, I can have my entire system, two active speakers, laptop, DJ controller, and cables set up in 15 minutes or less from the time I park my vehicle. It blows my mind. 10 years ago I would take me 45 minutes , 15 years ago it would take 1 hour before I had sound., now it is under 20 minutes. I find myself double guessing thinking i forgot something.
