Our Story

Hello and welcome! Robert and Patryk here. We have over 20 years of experience in DJing and began our music journey all the way back in the mid-’90s.

This ongoing passion drove us to create a site with upfront and honest information on topics that are important to DJs, but more on that later…

Robert’s older brother introduced him to the world of dance music through all the amazing compilation mix CDs from that era. From the legendary Global Underground series to Gatecrasher and Trancemaster. Like any good friend does Robert introduced Patryk to those quality tunes.

Before CDs became the norm, Robert would record tracks to cassette tapes (remember them!) and we would review and critique the latest music while at school. We fell in love with the music and would go crazy for the epic drops. Tracks like “Corona – Rhythm of the Night” is one we still remember today. Such simple times.

At the time we dreamt of becoming superstar DJs. We even developed a business plan for our own company called Synergy Entertainment. Here’s the original logo Patryk created in his teenage years!

As time went on we discovered weekly radio shows from our favourite DJs. Armin Van Buuren’s A State of Trance and Above & Beyond’s Trance Around The World just name a few. From the moment we were old enough we began going to clubs and festivals and experiencing the music on a whole new level.

Our love for DJing only grew from there. From the very beginning, we wanted to do what those DJs did. Back then the internet was still young so learning was a process of trial and error. Robert used to create mixes using basic software without even having access to headphone cueing. Before long we moved onto Virtual DJ and eventually, we both purchased our first DJ gear.

From there we would get together for epic 8hr back to back VS sessions. Since Robert lived in a rural location without neighbours nearby we would practically blow the roof off!

Even as we got older and realised the DJ touring lifestyle was not what we wanted we continued to mix. Constantly pushing our skills and looking out for the latest gear. So many years later and even with regular jobs, partners and kids we still find time to throw down an epic set with both old and new tracks.

Now you know a little bit more about us and why we have created this site. Let’s dive into how we approach our articles and why we think you’ll find value in them.

How We Write Our Articles

All the articles you’ll find on this site are researched and written by us. Using both our own personal experiences and the experiences of people we trust. This is the core of everything we publish.

Where possible we aim to get our hands on the products we review but sometimes that isn’t possible. In those cases, we rely on feedback from others who have bought and used the product. We also rely on the expertise of staff in our local stores to get another perspective on the products we review.

From the start, we wanted to create a hub of information for both aspiring and seasoned DJs. A site you can trust to give you an unbiased opinion on the topics and products that matter to DJs.
