In 1997/98 I began as a vinyl mixing player (aka DJ) to work officially in some bars and clubs. And I thought: The first thing you need is a unique name. And I had no idea! So I played around with my first name and chosed an anagram – „Tasmo“ was born.
As you can hear on the following tape, my technical skills have not been very professional. A question mark after the two critical letters „DJ“ should compensate for this and make that clear. So I became my alter ego „DJ? Tasmo“.
The second thing you need as a becoming DJ are application tapes. The cassette „Dilettante Habits two“ shows some of my musical tastes at the late 90s. The tools I‘ve used are very traditional, one 1210, a cheep „Dual“ player, a two-channel mixer and a couple of vinyls.
