Well, My dad was a DJ back in the 80s so I had his old set up until that went down the drain.. So I found a free site to make music (fruity loops) and I kinda let that go. When I was about 15 I started getting serious about music and buying records. So from there I practiced on my friend's turntables until I got my pair. My parents thought this was just another hobby I was going to let go but they saw how much it meant to me and helped me get my set up. I kinda got sick of the same sound of music so I started using fruity loops again and acid to sequence. I moved to FL after my graduation where I met nothing but cool helpful people. I was in the right area. One of my boys of New Republic got me hooked on reason and pretty much the rest is still is in its making.
Why this name?
Its a lot of us Michaels in this world.. so back in high school I called by my last name and it just became of habbit of telling people to call me Winston. Before that I was going by DvSMyKe I had that since I was 13. I thought it was time to change it up but DvSMyKe is still around hahaha. I also go by Michael Dub I got that from my pre-k teacher haha yeah I have a few names. .
Do you play live?
At the moment. . No. Thats in the works
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
It helps a lot! Allowing people to hear new music in their homes..etc But also it has hurt a lot of artist in the long run. . I say if you download music and you like it. . Go buy it and support the artist..
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Let me think about that. . Yes! If you are interested in me check my contact page!!!
I have to say the 80s really keeps me going.. A lot of artist during that time period were ahead of their time. To name a few: J. Spencer, Art Porter, Rakim, Tribe Called Quest, Leaders of the New School, Naughty by Nature, Digital Underground, on the electronic tip: A guy Called Gerald, Carl Cox, MIST, Calibre, Influx Datum, DJ Marky, Nu Tone, my boys New Republic much respect!
