Your Coach, Aeon Psych
Hello, I am Aeon!
I have put in over 800 hours learning and experimenting with what works and doesn't work with mixing music (documented on mixcloud.com/aeonpsych as well as twitch.tv/aeonpsych).
As I originally taught myself (through watching other DJs mix, watching tutorial videos, YouTube videos, searching forums, etc.), I found that it was actually really difficult and/or time consuming to find all the specific and relevant information I needed to learn certain techniques. Combine this with a decent amount of interest from others in learning from me, I figured it would be more efficient to consolidate all my knowledge on the subject into nice, convenient and easy to follow packages.
Realizing I also have knowledge on a variety of other subjects people would be interested in learning, I figured it would be best to just incorporate all of this into 1 place. As a result, I have invested many months putting all of my knowledge together into individually packaged series on this site for your enjoyment!
Dream big, achieve bigger, and may all your dreams become reality!
