I'm a recreational DJ self-confessed audiophile who's been passionate about EDM since 1996, in particular Trance & Progressive.

I spend a lot of money on music and upgrade my purchases as I run 2 separate hard drives (1 with mp3 only HDD and 1 SSD with WAV & AIFF), for DJing and production, and also for leisure/listening - this is why I submit so many versions of the same release. Thought that I would mention this as there are 'haters' out there who want to remove digital submissions.

Feel free to contact me with genuine questions or ideas (please no auction links, unless in my want list), I am very friendly and readily available, but please do not abuse my account.

Music Production Software: FL Studio 12.

DJ Mixing Software / Controller: Traktor Pro 3 / Traktor Kontrol S3.

Amplifier / Monitors: TEAC AH500/ B&W DM607.

Headphones: Monster™ Turbine Pro - Copper Edition

It all started when I first listened to the following tracks: The Future Sound Of London "Papa New Guinea", Jam & Spoon "Stella", "Follow Me" & "Odyssey To Anyoona", Cygnus X "Superstring" & "The Orange Theme", L.S.G. "Netherworld", B.B.E. "7 Days & 1 Week", Ayla "Ayla" and Way Out West "Ajare" & "The Gift", all of which completely mesmerised me.

Once hooked I then properly began to collect Trance music, and from 1998 I instantly idolised classic tracks such as: Push "Universal Nation" & "Strange World", Armin van Buuren "Blue Fear", Binary Finary "1998", Mauro Picotto "Lizard", Agnelli & Nelson "El Niño", Three Drives "Greece 2000", ATB "9pm-Till I Come", Lost Tribe "Gamemaster", Art Of Trance "Madagascar", Signum "What Ya Got 4 Me", Plastic Boy "Twixt", Boccaccio Life "The Secret Wish (Lange Remix)", Matt Darey "From Russia With Love", Sasha "Xpander", Bedrock "Heaven Scent", and one of my all time favourites - Hybrid "Finished Symphony"!

Since then, I have been collecting Trance & Progressive CD's - many are signed and/or limited edition releases. Hence I tend to be on the lookout for new music all of the time; so discogs is great!

Preferred Genres & Styles: Trance, Progressive Trance, Tech Trance, Psy-Trance, Tech House, Progressive House, Deep House, Breakbeat, Breaks, Minimal, Downtempo & Ambient. Also have time for Classical and genuinely good music, not the superficial, commercial crap that plagues Radio 1 and the charts!
