Hello! I hope you’re all doing well! I am a practicing drum & bass DJ in the USA. I’ve been looking for music forums to join over the past couple of years, and I hope this is a good fit!

I started DJing in 2005 with vinyl, then moved to Serato plates around 2007 or 2008. I was using Numark TTXs in those days, which I recently replaced with a pair of used Technics 1200 M3Ds that I was lucky enough to find on craigslist.

I enjoyed listening to drum and bass, both at home and at venues, around the mid-2000s. However, I thought the idea of mixing drum & bass was daunting, so I rarely even bought drum & bass records or tracks online.

In 2020, I started buying drum & bass records (vinyl) and have kept a pretty regular practice ethic mixing drum & bass at home. I do not use any digital vinyl, controllers, CDJs or a laptop yet. I have really been trying to start from the beginning with DJing and drum & bass is my focus. I enjoy Calibre, High Contrast, Goldie, John B, and LTJ Bukem just to name a few. I am not much aware of USA drum & bass producers and DJs yet.

I was drawn to this forum through a search engine inquiry with information on Random Movement’s forthcoming “Patty Melt” track, which I heard on a V Recordings podcast.

Take care everyone! I’m sure I will have questions about future and past drum & bass releases, and hopefully gathering new ideas via dnbforum on how to improve my mixing!
