Joey began DJing as a hobby back in 1983 at the age of 12 playing mostly early electro and hip-hop. He made the switch to house music in 1985 when the first wave of Chicago house hit NYC that same year. In 1989 he started releasing some of his early productions on several small New York record labels whilst he was working as a courier. A year later he caught the eye of R & S Records in Belgium and by mid 1990 released his first major record with that company titled "Energy Flash". Beltram soon followed with some equally impressive releases.
Not Joey Beltram, though. In the mid 90s, he lived and breathed dancefloors. Every time he sparked up the gear in his studio, the club was still ringing in his ears. When he was making music, it was to be played on the turntables in a sweaty, dark, twisted techno haunt; not on your headphones while popping out for some milk - and it was absolutely not for being piped into the background of anything as wholesome as a coffee shop. As a DJ I was playing out a lot back then, so that’s what I wanted to make my music for, says Beltram . Making the album was like playing a peak-time set, with a lot of what you hear done live, late at night, Beltram sweating over the mixing desk and an arsenal of hardware. I’d be riding the gear in real-time, he says. I was doing all those parameter changes with the resonance and cutoff live.
21st Century (Digital Boy)" is a song by the punk rock group Bad Religion. It was originally recorded in 1990 on their fifth full-length studio album Against the Grain and re-recorded on the 1994 album Stranger Than Fiction. The following year it was included on the All Ages compilation release
Classic album: Joey Beltram on Places. The techno legend looks back over his uncompromising 1995 long-player. New remix I did of 'Redux' by Emmanual Top. This one should be out soon, both digital and vinyl. Sound quality of the video clip is pretty poor for some reason :( But you get the idea :) :) 5,018 Views.
