Deenoboy always had music in his life. Starting out as a Drummer, Guitarist, Bassist, and Keyboardist, he wanted to be like his heros Herbie Hancock, Kraftwerk, Metallica and Techmaster PEB. He spent a lot of time listening to all the great records learning and perfecting new techniques. By 1983 he was introduced to MIDI, Drum Machines, Synthesizers, Samplers and Computer Based Software Sequencers and was totally mesmerized. He later discovered that his sound as a Music Producer was a mixture of all the music he grew up listening to and found it to be confusing to label it.
So he began to work hard and find his place in the music world. With rock being his favorite genre, he began experimenting by combining Rock Guitars, Synths, Turntables, Drum Machines and Acoustic Drum Kits into on powerful sound. He later decided to make his first and most powerful CD “State Of Emergency” which has a universal sound covering Pop, Metal, Electro Rock, and Soundtrack Scores together in one complete package.
