I was a Club DJ for 10 years, but that finished 10 years ago. I wasn’t a Christian then, but found God about 5 years ago. Since then I have been running our Youth Worship team, buts its all Hillsong and Matt Redman etc and I’d been trying to write some songs for the band to use.
I recently felt God tell me “Why are you trying to write Matt Redman’s songs when I trained you for 10 years as a DJ? You played around with synths and samplers, that’s what I trained you for” (I used to have a Korg M1, Electribe EA-1, Novation Supernova II, Akai MPC, Roland MC303 Groovebox etc)
So here I am, 5 kids later and in my early 40′s and going back to EDM! Man I feel old (I guess some of the Old Testament guys thought the same too), but loving listening to Gods DJs radio, the first 3 tracks on Hillsong Young and Free are pounding out of my car stereo subs daily. I’ve started messing around with ipad apps, Figure, Rebirth, Garageband, iKaossilator etc. I’d like to pick up a Novation MiniNova, Korg EMX1 and Kaossilator Pro and make some tunes to play live with our Youth team at their “Vibe” events.
I look forward to hearing your songs, your set ups, your testimonies. God bless all Gods DJs and producers!!! Be creative and fruitful.
