DJ GINGER TIM 2020 BIOGRAPHY
Since an early age, I have always loved my music it seems to take me to my inner Zen. I first remember going to my first RAVE at Raindance in Barking, East London. That was it, I was hooked, I confirmed my inner thoughts that I did want to be a DJ, and I remember seeing Carl, Fabio and Grooverider, doing their thing standing as close to the DJ stand as I could to watch and being blown away.
Then over the years, I had to stop mixing because of starting a new business, wife, kids it did not seem like the right thing to do, I still listened to upfront dance music with a dream of djing.
My wife soon realised that I was missing my decks and brought me an amateur setup that I used for a year or two when I could, I even remember driving my wife to Liverpool for a conference and sitting in my car mixing for 6 hours waiting for her!
Then Santa got me a Traktor setup and I was hooked, I was so confused as my wife hates house music, yet she brought me this new mixer, she knew what she was doing.
I even remember flying back from Azerbaijan and being virtually the only passenger on the plane and mixing all the way home with my iPad and F1 Controller, very cool.
Then in Oct 2018, we had our summer house built (soundproofed) at the end of the garden, which is where you will find me most evenings, practicing and listening to music.
In December of 2019, I was offered a mentorship with DJ Bergwall.
I would like to say a big thank you to him for the inspiration and everything he has taught me, whilst pushing me to pursue my dreams of DJing.
I would also like to say a big thank you to Anna for believing in me and encouraging me to pursue my dreams.
I have recently upgraded to a Pioneer setup and Rekordbox and I’m currently spending all my free time practicing and learning new techniques etc.
