it all started back in 2012. I didn’t start producing in 2012, I actually began producing at the age of 14 on FL Studio back in 2003.
I was just messing around no biggie. I started DJing earlier that year I was in 9th grade. I remember very clearly we went around the room and the teacher asked us what we wanted for Christmas. I said I wanted some vinyl turntables and FL Studio. All my peers laughed at me pretty much, said you’ll go no where… electronic music sucks. I got into Trance in the early 2000s. I remember A State Of Trance with Armin van Buuren way before episode 50. It was so new he actually chatted with us every week on mIRC chat room. So I got some turntables and a few vinyl records from dancerecords.com (no longer in service) and learned how to DJ. I didn’t pick up production until 2004 when I really got into how it worked and how to do things etc. Never used youtube, never used tutorials. Just used my ears and figured out how this did that. I quickly switched to Ableton Live version 5. I heard it was the elite software for production. It was so new that it didn’t even support WAV files yet. I did mainly remixes… sadly I don’t have any of them that I did from the early years. Computer crashes and hard drive failures etc. I started my site in 2004 then it was djcoleman.net I went by DJ Coleman until 2008-2009 or so when I found out there was another DJ Coleman in New York... full bio & story on website.
