Music has been my passion since I was in my early teens. I worked in an old record shop for work experience in Hyde Park, Leeds and started to pay attention to electronic music after being shown a load of vinyl and a pair of technics. The first ever record I owned was Flowers by Armand Van Helden and thought, what have I been missing!
I listened to house music now and then but didn’t really pay attention to it until I was in my early 20’s. I started clubbing at places like Wax:on and progressed into listening to more deeper sounds and knew I had to become a DJ.
I bought myself a pair of CDJ’s, went about learning the ropes but never really got into vinyl. I wanted to give myself an edge and consider myself as a “complete” DJ by learning on wax. I went to Melodie and after only two lessons, I was playing in clubs on vinyl and collecting all the ltd edition releases I’d been missing out on.
If you’re even just considering DJ’ing, don’t think twice, contact the DJ academy. It’s given me so much more confidence and gave me the last push I needed to get where I want to be.
