You may remember me doing a review of the Joe Deertay kit from MSX Audio a couple weeks back.
In that review I mentioned they were doing a giveaway as well.
The winner has been announced, and it’s DJFinyl
Checkout a little intro below and make sure you go over to the MSX Audio site to read the full write-up as well as listen to the winning track
Who is DJFinyl? Where are you from? How’d you get your start?
First and foremost, I’m a DJ (obviously), producer/beat maker, record junky. I am the DJ/producer of “The Greater Good”–a group consisting of myself and an artist by the name of Marion Write. I’m also the Red Bull Big Tune Las Vegas Champion.
I was born and raised on the island of Saipan in the Northern Marianas and moved to Vegas when I was 13.
I started DJing while I was in college. I would go digging for records to play for gigs and along the way I would also find amazing music that wouldn’t necessarily be for my gigs, but just sounded dope.
That’s where the itch to make beats started. I had records that I knew could be something, but I had no way to create it. I ended up getting an MPC 1000 from Craigslist and I was off to the races after that.
No one ever really starts off sounding how they want to sound in their head, which was certainly my case. I just honed in on what I was trying to convey and eventually it started to make sense.
