Turntable Guide

20/01/2016 Main

Welcome back to my blog guys. I’ve been gone a while so thought t was about time I added another article to the blog. I love pretty much all kinds of music. I’m not a massive pop fan but there are some great pop tunes out there still. As I mentioned back in my last post, I love the experience of doing music festivals and a long as there’s a good mix of music, it’s more about the vibe and everybody coming together. Dance music is up there as one of my favourite genres but I tend to just do small venues when it comes to Dance gigs as I find them more fun that way.

Being a Dance music fan and somebody who likes to produce my own tracks, I thought writing a short article on Turntables might be pretty cool. I’ve had quite a bit of experience buying turntables in the past so figured I’d share a bit of my knowledge and give a guide on finding the right turntable to suit your needs. Read more

Korg

19/11/2015 Main

Afternoon peoples. Hope you read and enjoyed the previous entry. I really enjoy writing about music! Today I want to take the focus away from the drums and talk about my favourite brand of keyboards… Korg. I was fortunate enough to have a Korg is40 when I was 16 and it was the first keyboard I played and just thought “Wow!!” You can play any style on it and it sounds so convincing. It still sounds convincing today and stands up to a lot of very good contemporary keyboards. Korg really know how to make amazing keyboards. The step recording option was really cool and I arranged my A-Level composition task on it. My lecturer was suitably impressed and asked how I had recorded it.

My Love for Drummin'

10/11/2015 Main

Good morning peoples.  It’s Derrick Dyer. I want to talk to you about my love for drumming and playing keyboards. I fell head over heels for the drums when I was five years old. I was watching TV apparently, a music video with my mother, and when the drummer came into shot I started mimicking him. After the video had finished I carried on and wouldn’t stop talking about it for nearly a month. Then my parents decided to take me for drum lessons. I was hooked. I haven’t gone more than two weeks without playing drums for the past 15 years!
