However, I have a deep passion for all electronic music...from jungle to progressive house and everything in between. I can never get enough of those raw, filthy, grimy basslines that make everything in the room shake...there's nothing better. And I don't know what does it better but dubstep...and I'm completely addicted to it, the grimier the better. I'm also addicted to anything progressive...progressive house, progressive breaks, progressive psy - it's all delicious! There's just something in progressive that draws me in. Oh, and Indian and Middle Eastern music is my guilty pleasure...sitars are the sexiest instruments ever!
I graduated from the School of Audio Engineering in New York City in July of 2005, but I haven't been too lucky with getting a job and I'm not sure if I even want to work in the audio industry anymore, besides DJing of course ;)
Yep, I'm a DJ, and I spin both vinyl and CDs. I mostly spin psy trance, progressive, and downtempo / chillout, but I also have a variety of records ranging from hardcore to house to jungle that I'm known to pull out and play from time to time.
I started going to "raves" in 2000 and I went to my first party in New York in 2001. I used to go to parties in New York City all the time so some of you have probably already met me at some point. I don't go to parties as much as I used to, but I am heavily involved in the psy culture, and more recently, in the breaks and dubstep scenes. In general, I'm more drawn to smaller 21+ events nowadays, but that doesn't mean I don't go out to crazy, all-night bangers from time to time...but above all, I love outdoor events of any kind!
I really like meeting new, interesting people, but I'm really shy at first...at least until I get to know someone better and feel comfortable around them. Although I can be really extroverted at times, for the most part, I'm an introvert. I have a hard time talking to people, especially when I'm forced to. I am a person that needs a lot of "alone" time, but when it's time to party, I do it like it's my job.
I'm very open-minded and I love having deep, intelligent conversations with people about random topics...I love being mentally stimulated and learning all sorts of different things from others. I consider myself quite the spiritual being who ultimately seeks out enlightenment and a better understanding of the universe and this thing we call reality.
I incorporate many New Age beliefs into my life and I am very interested in Neo-Pagan, Eastern, and ancient religions. I don't follow a specific religion, but I do believe in a higher power, the universal life force, which runs through us all. I believe in alternate realities that are happening simultaneously and in different layers of consciousness that we can travel in and out of. I'm open to all religions since I feel they are all separate paths leading to the same destination, which is enlightenment...that is, if you can get past all the manipulating tricks of organized religion ;)
Oh yea...and I love nature. Being outdoors, especially walking through forests, gives me serenity. I love hiking up to scenic points, where I can relax, reflect, and observe the world around me. When I'm sad or lonely, or just have too much stuff on my mind, I look to the sky for solace. The night sky comforts me and helps me forget all my worries down here on Earth. It makes me realize that in the vastness of all that is, human pain and worry is insignificant. I truly believe that my soul comes from deep within the cosmos and I'm planning on returning there again when the time is right.
And yes, just like everyone else out there, I have my fair share of issues, but I feel that makes me all the more interesting. So yea, that's me...I wrote more about myself on here than pretty much anyone I know, but I'm a very expressive person and I like when people know what I'm all about, right from the start. It's better to be hated for who you are, than be loved for who you are not...
I am positive, spiritual, and expressive
