DJ Love Tap
DJ Love Tap has been playing vinyl and digital tracks, producing, mixing, cutting and scratching for years. He started playing guitar at age 12 and was teaching by age 19. He also developed on bass guitar, as well as vocal confidence in concert choir for 6 years in high school and college, and developed a deep knowledge of music theory. Transitioning to the tables, purchasing his first set of technic 1200's at age 13, he bagan emulating favorites like Qbert, and Bad Boy Bill, and listening to techno and house, and wondering how to combine the many different genres. Meanwhile riffing, cutting, scrathing, mixing, and track production became a deep passion quickly as he attempted to learn 2 hand complex classical piano pieces and bizzare jazz chords on guitar while trying to get through Music Theory 3 in College and failing miserably for not being able to get the two handed piano technique down. Maybe he spent way too much time on the turntables. He proceeded to change his major to Computer Science and attend events all around the continental United States in the midwest, and DJ and Produce events in multiple cities. With numerous gigs, production companies, collaborations, and clubs throughout the Midwest in St. Louis (Professional Ravers, Superstars of Love, Club Quazar, Hyperspace, The Oz), Chicago (Vibe Alive, Vibeonauts) Milwaukee (Massive), and other stateside locations, he's now in the San Francisco Bay area, and presently digging deeper into the production side of tech house and hybrid "non-genre" house, breakbeats, drum and bass house, deep house, and techno.
He's been thoroughly immersed in Chicago house music, and has a quick, multi-track mix, and a "hands on" jack house, to smooth mix style, which is completely fun, spontaneous, and perfectly over the top. A wiz at box crushing DJ mastery, musically-selective, and stylishly sophisticated with a intuitive gift for track flow in the mix, he makes things different and fun. Occasionally slipping tasteful breaks and other mind-bending, percussive, "non 4-on-the-floor" beats smootly into house is his magical unique flavor that he brings. With his original tracks on Love Time Records (LTR), his innovative style and class shines through and delivers an epic quality to his booty rockin sets. He's a deeply artistic DJ Producer, and a fireball of sensory overload to witness, with the skills to make anyone want to move on the dance floor.
2019-2020 will be production time for the whole Love Time Records (LTR) Crew, going into vibrational alignment, and some amazing tracks are due to drop in the fall of 2019 through 2020.
