Mixtape Friday: Episode 065 – Mixed by DJ BmanV

BmanVWhat is the significance of your name and how did you get it?
I have always been called BMAN since I can remember. I had a life awakening/ enlightenment, whatever you want to call it, and realized it was time to stop trying to please everyone else and start being myself. Since then my life has taken a complete 180 for the best. I want to spread the love of music and show that everyone should just be themselves, not to worry about what others think of you, because there really is no right or wrong! Be free, be yourself, just be! BMAN!
Describe your style?

My style is very broad. I love deep house, just as much as I love uplifting trance. House, Techno, Trance… There’s so many genres it gets wild. I think good music is good music, no need to put a bunch of labels on things. If it sounds great and I can feel it then it’s my style!
What was the first record you start scratching and mixing on the turntables?

I couldn’t say what specific songs I started off mixing, when I started I used a bunch of different tracks, I didn’t really stick to a specific one.

You are a pretty diverse DJ, describe the music scene in your neck of the woods?

The music scene by me is very diverse, you’ll have Aly and fila spinning at one club the same night you have Chus and ceballos spinning at another club… The struggle is real!

Who and what are your influences?

I have many influences in music. I’d say some of the bigger ones are Carl Cox, Roger Sanchez, Chus and Ceballos, Loco Dice, Eric prydz, Armin van Burren, Markus Schulz, John O Callaghan, Bryan Kearney, the list goes on and on. I would say that my very first influences were Dj tiesto way back in the day as well as Paul Oakenfold and Pauk van Dyk. I remember jamming out to there mixes before I even lost all my teeth!
What artists are you listening to right now?

Right now I’m really interested in Alex di Stefano. The way he produces his tracks with his techno/ trance style is very intriguing to me. I will say tho that there are multiple dj/ producers daily that I am very impressed with and look up to.

Who would you like to work with in the future?

To be able to work with any artists in the business would be a dream come true to me.

What would be the steps you would take as a Dj to Break an artist in your area?

To help an artist get his break I’d get his/her mixes and tracks out to get as much exposure as possible. Or you could always go the Kim K route

Do you prefer radio or live DJing?

I have no preference in whether I DJ live or radio style. I always say I’ll DJ in a forest in the middle of nowhere for the trees. Music is life !

Is there anything you would like our readers to know?

Anyone reading this, start to live your life now… Don’t wait anymore, take all and any steps you can towards your dreams and start to make them a reality! Don’t let anything hold you back, if you want something bad enough you can make it happen.
