Born in a once-prosperous town in Pennsylvania, DJ Element (Known normally as Tim Heckman) wasn’t always into Trance. Tim Heckman started as a child listening to all genres finding elements he liked, and some he disliked. The genres of Rock and Pop were big in his young years. Pop was eventually replaced with Rap and R&B. These genres only lasted a short time. The likes of DJ Sammy and Alice DeeJay gave eLement his touch of Electronica…and from there it exploded. He was an avid listener, finally getting the money buy a version of Ableton in which he now works on the mechanics of mixing. At this current time, he creates mixes for promotional events while going to school and saving up for a hardware setup.
