We recently sat down and had a chat with up & comming Dj Patrick Weblin prior to him featuring at the first installment of FRESH BLOOD in Cyprus Avenue on sat 19th March.
we asked him what makes him tic and how he got into the game...here is what he had to say...
"...my love for music started off with listening to acts like the prodigy and chemical brothers,
but soon expanded into different genres, including house,trance,drum n bass, but especially techno, anything that could get me moving really.
one dj in picticular made me wanna be a dj and its the man himself carl cox, i just love his talents on the decks, he is with out a doubt the very best dj in the world
and im sure not alot of people would disagree with me,
i remember listening to his album non stop 98 and i was hooked instantly,
carl cox was being interviewed for sum dj magazine that i used to read when i was younger and he said one thing i will never forget,he said play what you enjoy playing,
and thats exactly what i do, i play music that i love to play.
i got my first set of decks when i was 15 and used to play them night and day,
goin up to cork into record shops and spendin all my wages on vinyl.
i only started playing gigs recently, within the last 2 years, and it all started by me sending in a mix to a website that my friends were members of (purehousemusic.net)
it got great reviews and was most downloaded and listened to mix for 2 months running,
then a internet music station called SHEDfm got in touch and asked would i be interested in doin a couple gigs around the city and in my home town bandon,
which i gladly accepted,was bit nervous at first but when i got into it i couldn stop smiling.
and here i am now, playing my biggest gig to date on the 19th march, in cypress avenue,proudly playing along side the new best djs in cork city,"
below is a little taster of what you can expect from Patrick on the 19th....
