About Me

  • Bio
    Having been born and raised on the Gold Coast in Australia, I’ve enjoyed growing up with the dazzling lights of Surfers Paradise as my nightly back drop, early morning surf swims and a relaxed lifestyle which comes with it. I believe that a beautiful city such as this has contributed to my taste for funky house music, tech house and early morning deep house music.

    Having mixed these genres for many years, I can appreciate the feelings of warmth and welcomeness it gives off. Whether it’s a Friday night roof top bar vibe, Saturday night warm-up or a Sunday session to end the weekend, house and tech house will always have the crowd feeling carefree

    Just your standard XDJ-RX2 and some JBL 308
  1. @Cupe Thanks mate! Appreciate the support for this community!!
  2. If you're feeling as dusty as I am this morning, I congratulate you on your efforts. Recorded live in the very early hours of the morning, this is my kick on's set. Was an enjoyable night to say the least, seeing the sun rise was also nice a touch tho 👌 As normal, constructive criticism is alway welcomed, throw a like, a repost or follow, all the support is much appreciated 🤙 Enjoy!!
  3. Thanks man, I downloaded a heap of new music and went into the mix not knowing many of the songs 😅 It was a rooftop of an apartment at a friends of a friends place, turned out to be a good time!
  4. Thank mate, will do from now on
  5. Got some and had some skin in the game by the sounds of it. Appreciate the comment to the thread!
  6. Thanks man, appeciate it. Hoping to better this weekend's mix! Cheers NitroMonkey! thanks for the support!
  7. Evening! Below is the link to my most recent private roof top session recored live. Was a nice afternoon to throw some tech house around and I'm not going to lie, it does get a little sloppy in parts as the drinks were being consumed quckly 😂 >>>Soundcloud link<<< Let me know your thoughts on the mix, constructive criticism is alway welcomed. Also if you can throw a like, repost or follow it'd be much appreciated 🤙
  8. Seems like there is some experience floating around here!!
  9. Evening / morning or whenever you’re reading this. I’m still quite new here and noticed there’s only a few active users that post or reply to topics, so I thought I’d throw out the question to see what genre of music you like to mix, spin or produce or if you hold residencies ect.. Me, I’m located on the Gold Coast in Queensland, I focus on tech house – techno – base house, started mixing when I was 18, did the club scene for 2 years and gave it all up. 10 years on I’m now getting back into it. Gig wise I do some private parties / house parties and the od roof top Saturday – Sunday session. I’d like to take it a step further and do events weekly but I need to regain my skill set. Fire away 🤙
  10. As a new member it's only fair I contribute to the set up thread 🤙 Currently I have the XJD-RX2 with 2x JBL 3 series LSR308 with Sennheiser HD25's headphones, some LED strips and a little RGB in the corner. I also have a few indoor plants like palms and elephant ears that are usually behind the decks and in the corners to give it more of a calmative effect. On a side note, scrolling through the 105 pages in this thread, the evolution of the technology is incredible!!
  11. @LabRat For me it helps song choice for future events, what sounds good through the headphone in front of a computer isn't always a 5 star at a venue. Hopfully this helps someone else out in the future.
  12. @OxyKon That's roughly the method I use. As I mix mostly tech house and base house, I've combined Mixed in Key with the star rating. Using harmonic mixing and using the start rating helps me know what direction the set will head and what energy each song will bring. 2-3 star is early in the set 4-5 is peaking set, obviously reading the crowd as well.
  13. Thank for the help @Scottie and @Cupe, I read through that section of the manual and that didn’t work for me, none of the star rating changed. What I did stumbled across that worked was this, Step 1: Insert the USB device Step 2: Expand the playlist I want the update Step 3: Click the track or tracks I want, I clicked track 1, scrolled to the bottom, held shift and click the last track (100 in total) Step 4: Right click and select *Update Collection* Step 5: Done Seems so simple now, cheers for the help tho fellas!
  14. Thanks @Cupe still battling this issue as we speak 😂
