Owen stopped Electro in July 2005 as he was moving to London. ‘I decided to concentrate on pushing myself as a dj rather than promoting’ said Owen. Owen also started adapting his style from formulatic trance to incorporate more styles into his sets. “I hate being pigeon holed as a trance dj. I have two genres of music that I go by, good music and bad music.” This is Owen’s great skill as it makes his sets more individual and fresh. It also give Owen a great deal of flexabilty in his sets as well.
