Music : I have always thought of as the number-one love in my life. As a kid I taught myself some basic piano from listening to classical music while on holidays at my grandma's. I guess it was at that stage I realized I had a natural ear for music, and from then on I was always either secretly writing songs during my childhood or mucking around with tunes on my Dad's guitar.' In 2000, i began to use a computer in my home and discovered computer-based production, as well as the network of resources available via the Internet. I started with Fruity Loops. Influences at the time probably were Armin van Buuren, Cosmic Gate, Ferry Corsten, DJ Tiesto, and Darude. The internet did wonders for me. It meant I could interact with artists all over the world. People I used to keep in contact with (and still do with some), and mostly learn from. In 2003 the talented Shanon joined me. Genre: Trance is the name applied to a type of House music that tends to be faster than normal, rarely features vocals and is built around layers of shimmering, intertwining synthesizer riffs. This branch of house can itself be divided into sub-genres such as psychedelic or 'psy-trance', acid trance, euro-trance and Goan trance.
