Traktor DJ Studio
As a singer/songwriter/dance artist just getting my feet wet in DJing, it's an interesting time to throw myself in the mix. Just as CDs were the new vinyl, mp3 files are establishing themselves as the new CD.

As a sound designer for Korg and Ableton, he creates the sounds that other producers use. As a producer, he has worked with circuit Roland Belmares and commercial Joe Bermudez.
