DJ REMIX HISTORY
LIVE DJ MIXING
The founder of Avid Entertainment first started a career in DJing hosting a show on mid 90's Dance Radio station HITZ FM. This progressed to DJing in nightclubs across Melbourne, Australia through to 2008. There were various gigs and permanent residencies in this time.
Around 1998 Avid started using computers to make mixed CDs, and customized remixes of specific tracks. The tailored remixes became useful when DJing in nightclubs and gave Avid the opportunity to play versions to crowds they could dance to but not hear anywhere else.
MIXING MEDIA SOURCES
Avid started DJing with vinyl records, and still considers this the purest form of mixing a set. Eventually CDs started being used when vinyl versions of specific tracks couldn't be sourced. Soon after, the appeal of digital audio remixing and saving to CD and USB was too good to pass on and became the primary media sources.
