Lop-Sided:What introduced you to the world of producing and DJing in the first place
Well if you consider Rave Ejay as producing, then it was the local library back in 1999
But seriously I don't know. I remember my brother showed me this danish music website where upcoming bands showed of their stuff (a danish version of myspace, but actually much better
) back in 2005/2006. I started talking to some producers like Mads/Squarehead and some dance producers thanks to this website. At this point I started to grow an interest for making music again, since I was really bored of the limitations of Dance Ejay 3 which I used until 2004 I believe. Mads gave me a lot of knowledge and in mid-2007 I finally started to take producing much more serious than I used to.
So that's basically how it all started.
Djing I don't remember much of either, but I believe I tried some dj software back in 2005 as well. It taught me a lot about structure of tracks but eventually would be boring since I hungered for real gear - especially after I watched videos from Sensation Black 2005 and Qlimax 2003. In 2007 (or 2008?) I bought my first cheap numark gear. However I wasn't satisfied so I quickly returned them and bought Pioneer CDJ-400s, which was a huge challenge at first to use, but so much fun
did you think that you would become successful in the end?
Hmm no I don't think so. I sure wanted to, but I never knew I would get this much interest and knowledge about music overall
Also, could you give a word of advice to our fellow noob
producers and djs?
Noob is not a nice word, so I rather say upcoming
Well just believe in yourself. Don't try to sound like everyone else - however stay open for critism, especially from experienced producers and djs.
