    As I close in on middle age (!??!) I was curious if there were any other older people on here, still going to raves, DJing or producing?

    well that depends what u mean my middle aged
    if there was such a thing as a death clock we would all know our date of departure

    im 31 which feels good man, i laugh at the rising cost of car insurance, dont get asked for id and the kids in dominoes pizza call me sir.
    if i die at 62 then that makes me middle aged now

    Still love mixing DnB as much as when I was 18!

    Turned to the Darkside a long time ago though, you can thank No U Turn and Emotif for that lol

    Age is irrelevant really, it's all about the music! Now if you'd let me, I'm going to go and overdose on more cliches.

    I do always wonder though, do you reckon you'll be listening to dnb when you like 80 an on your death bed? obviously if you live that long.

    31. Being dj'ing for 15 years. Like to think I have a mature approach to music selection these days.

    Thank you kindly Mike, I use photoshop a lot on Facebook! ha

    Well this is all good then, nice to see I'm not alone. Genuinely don't register my age at all, still like going out when I can (maybe not on a work night though), starting to get back into production again and would one day like to return to Djing again too!
