Ever since my involvement in the early Rave scene from the early nineties I've considered the visual element at a party to be as important as the music being played. All of my early undergrounds presented a strong visual factor, in fact the Woopy Ball's Ambient Area was filled with all kinds of amazing eye candy. The main visuals artists from those days were Donovan (DJ Spun's twin brother) of "Lights Out", Mark Johns as well as Brian Walls of E-Con Graphics. In those early days they borrowed the techniques of projected visuals artists from the 60's, using slide projectors, film strips & overhead projectors to collage light into some incredible kinetic images. The work they created back in those days have had a lasting impression on me and today I try to bring some of that visual flavor and aesthetic to the parties I throw today.

Today I'm using video projectors to create my visual shows out at the club. I hook both laptop and VCR to multiple projectors and I try to transform a space into something beautiful, playful, energetic sometimes, mellow others but all with a psychedelic edge. I also bring out a variety of spot lights, flood lights, special effect lighting as well as moving lights to augment the visual environment.
