Hey let me introduce myself, My name is Richard Wainwright and I am 18 years old and my passion is house music. I live breathe and think house music. it was introduced to me by my brother so i got in to house music at a very early age (14) and I've been djing since i was 15. It has always been my dream to play in a club or in ibiza and a festival of course, I have been fortunate enough to warm up for some local djs at Venus the nightclub, the venue holds around 1000 people (i think) so i am used to playing to a big crowd. On my 18th birthday I ran down to my nearest baa bar and asked to run my own party, I have been running a party in the party room every 2 months since then and every night has or nearly sold out, around 140 people. I will confess that I do not produce or make my own music yet, however this is something I will be looking to do in the summer. I am currently studying for my A levels.
I am studying Maths, Electronics and computing (I'm a firm believer in WORK HARD PLAY HARDER) and these subjects have helped me know end especially electronics because now i have a greater understanding of what i am doing to the actual songs so i know how i can push them to the limits and get the most out of a song. I am also currently in the top 6 to win a DJ residency in ibiza with the pukka up gang - but i don't think ill be progressing as i have exams to focus on now....
I HAVE JOINED THE FORUM YO LEARN ABOUT PRODUCING.
House music for me can be split in to 2 categories Big Room and Vocal progressive. I have an equal love for both, however if I hard to chose i would chose the vocal progressive.
I believe I have rambled on enough now, so now ill let the music show you what I'm about....
