Blah Blah

This is all a bit Creme Brulee because I used to make music and DJ and all that a few years ago and I don't any more. Yet I'm still chucking it onto a web site. I suppose it was such a huge part of my life for a long time that I don't want to delete it from history.

Anyway. I started making music in about 1990. It's the sole reason I bought a computer in the first place. And didn't even know how to turn it on when it arrived. I built up a small midi studio and eventually released an ep in '94, which did pretty well. A Funk D'void remix grabbed a lot of attention. I also appeared on several compilations. One compilation called ALLied, I organised, designed, and mastered (ask me for a free copy!). I've pretty much given up music and djing since the arrival of the baba! I kinda lost lost my flair for it before that though anyway.
