Re: Official Welcome Thread! (MAKE SURE TO SAY HI!)
My ID is DJ Colicky Boy. I’m in the U.S. Been saved since 1993, started mixing in early 2000s. Was webcasting on Live365.com until they started charging fees. Now I have my own DJ mix blog at http://djcolickyboy.blogspot.com. I still do secular music mixes b/c it’s hard for me to find good Christian dance music…and without good input (tracks), it’s tough to do good output (mixes).
My fave styles are eurodance/hands-up/trance/dance pop/techno/house/club. Stuff with a good hard beat and vocals…the faster, the better, although no faster than 145 bpm. “Grew up” on old-school masters like Scott Blackwell, World Wide Message Tribe, and AJ Mora. The Plumb remixes and DJ Tiesto/Euro Stack remixes of two Avalon songs are excellent.
Unfortunately, most Christian dance music is, honestly, really awful. I often wonder why Christians can’t produce quality dance stuff like Cascada, Topmodelz and other secular projects.
There is a lot of vocal-less or instrumental Christian dance tracks but that strikes me as odd since it can’t be that difficult to write lyrics. I mean, if you look at a lot of secular lyrics, they could easily be adapted to refer to a love for God rather than a love for a significant other. But I digress.
Anyway, I joined this forum in the hope that I can be introduced to stuff that will rock my world while still glorifying the Christ who saved me. Sorry for the long intro.
