taught myself using the internet, but I've had formal musical training since I was 6. Then the past year and a half we've been bringing out internationals so had some q+a sessions and gleaned tips off guys like Phace, Psidream, Noisia, Evol Intent, Dom. My skills and my motivation has increased 10000-fold during that time!

I started dreaming of decks and mixing jungle/dnb (1996ish) then my mate bought some decks and I eventually bought them off him. Did a crash course in reason a year ago, still messing around with it, need to get the madness out my head and on to the screen!!!

was forced to get piano lessons while young...
so have been writing music for a long time...

began using steinberg sequencers at 15 to record
the rock bands i played in....

studied audio engineering for a while.... but honestly
found i knew more that the rest of the class.... found
class to be slow and boring and i was learning more
on my own with the help of mr interweb...

been writing dnb for a few years now....

as with boot.... (considering we are part of the same
crew)

i have had the pleasure to talk shop with a few of the big
names....

started with tracking in 2000, tried a few different programs, then moved on to fruityloops and stayed with it ever since. I've thought of moving on to "bigger" sequencers but when you know something like the tip of your pecker you dont want to give it up. plus its easy on the cpu compared. Also been fiddling with the guitar every now and then for 15 years but still cant seem to get it right.

logikz i remember this classy tracker tune love jah jah first, was it your track? that shit brings tears to me old eyes...

I heard some trippy trance tunes when I was about 13 year old and wanted to get producing. I just fucked around and made nothing decent until I got little more serious about the quality of my tunes. I have been really in to dnb about an year and a half for now. Never had any "real" musical training. When I'm playing, more than two keys pressed at the same time is too much for me :D
