Buying his first vinyl turntables before he was old enough to go to a club, instead he listened to mixes on the internet, using this knowledge to buy the hottest records of the moment. It was after playing his first major gigs just a year or two later, however, that he realised he wanted to similarly inspire others by producing his own tracks. Self taught by his own dedication his first remix stopped just shy of the Beatport House Top Ten.
It was Defected who passed his breakthrough track ‘Crunk’ to Azuli, vocalist Eeva re-singing the hook to Mary J Blige’s classic ‘Family Affair’, beginning an ascent that has made his releases a standard for DJs from Claptone, Mark Knight and CamelPhat to the BBC Radio One family of Pete Tong, Danny Howard, Annie Mac and Monki. Ever evolving his sound Siege’s latest productions are a bit darker resulting in Adam Beyer, Yousef, Alan Fitzpatrick, Nic Fanciulli and Hot Since 82 all championing his work.
In his masterclass for FaderPro and Toolroom Academy, Siege goes through his entire workflow start to finish to show you how he crafts his signature tech house sound. Throughout this course you’ll learn everything from drum programming, to melody creation, arrangement, processing for various different types of tracks and instruments leading all the way up to the final club ready mix.
