Subversive has been a dj and part of Droidbehavior since the late 90s. In those times Techno was hard and acts like Surgeon, Jeff Mills, Adam Beyer and Regis were pumping out epic tracks. The Detroit, Birmingham and Berlin styles of that era all influenced Subversive and it can be heard in his dj sets. In the early stages Subversive mixed on three turntables when he had the opportunity. Fast paced mixing, effects and turntable tricks could typically be heard during his sets. Today, Subversive’s mixing has matured into a well developed sound that attempts to bridge the past with the present. He uses software along with hardware synths and turntables in order to create a more unique sound that reflects the future of what Techno can be. Subversive has had the privilege to mix along side some of his respected contemporaries like DJ Bone, Regis, Todd Sines, Surgeon, John Tejada and Fanon Flowers.
As far as Droidbehavior is concerned, Subversive has been involved with the group since its conception. Having met Acid Circus in college and Drumcell at parties in the 90s, Subversive contributes in any way he can to help Droidbehavior propel to new heights.
