Born and raised in Texas I (DjD) has been a fan and follower of Electronic Dance Music (EDM) ever since the age of 13. I got my first turn tables when I was 15 and would purchase records from “Bills records and tapes.” I love the way a record sounds. Hearing the slight crackle of vinyl still gives me goose bumps! I still remember the days when my parents would tell me “Turn the music down!” as if it were yesterday. Now in my early 40’s I get to enjoy all types of music with my 3 wonderful girls who I hope one day one of them will become a Dj!
A lot has changed since that time now all my music collections is electronic (MP3) but I still have a pretty large record collection consisting of retro to house to DnB (Drum and Bass). Today I would say my taste is the same as it was when I was 13 but not so focused on one genre. I listen to everything from pop to rap to (EDM) Dubstep and even mashups. My days of being a club Dj are long gone but I still do private events and am the resident DJ for XKO or Xtreme Knockout MMA promotions.
