From that, he self taught to beat match using Vinyl and later progressed to CDJ’s. Now at the age of 23, he continues his reign on the dance scene with Traktor Scratch Pro and LIVE production modules.
“Traktor Scratch PRO has to be the best piece of equipment i have purchased to-date. It’s innovative feature set allows me to concentrate a lot more on the correct music selections for my sets, no rushing involved and I can even pre-edit my sets so that i have all my CUE points in place for when i use various acapella’s and looping positions. I recently purchased the Kontroller X1 to run alongside my performances which has further enhanced the experience that people will have when they come to see me”.
