SHAKEDOWN with JOEY YOUNGMAN
THE SHAKEDOWN with guest JOEY YOUNGMAN!!
The owner and A&R of Fetish Recordings and Jackin Tracks, Joey Youngman has been producing house music since the ripe age of 11. With extensive training in classical and jazz piano, he had a strong foundation to start from. Most of Joey's early teen years were spent satisfying his obsession for making electronic music. Eventually, he fell so in love with house that he decided to focus his energy completely on it. At this point in the mid 90's, house music was flourishing in America, and Joey۪s home-state of California was feeling this boom. He immersed himself in this music as much as possible, going to parties and raves up and down the California coastline. During his exploration of the house scene Youngman discovered the turntables, and realized that this was the main way that house music was being played. Up until this point he had been Djing small house parties with tape decks and CD players, but after his first experience on the decks there was no turning back.
At 14 years old, Youngman picked up his first set of turntables, and began learning how to mix records. This new craft taught him how to move people with music, and enlightened him in his own music production. Joey soon began playing at clubs and parties before he was old enough to get in the front door.
Now with over 12 years of production experience under his belt, and a huge library of releases to show for it, Joey has also taken on the role of label owner: starting Fetish Recordings and Jackin Tracks. His DJ skills have taken him all around the world to England, Belgium, Scotland, Australia, New Zealand, and cities all across the United States. Joey۪s discography is constantly expanding, and includes releases and remixes on some of the world۪s most respected house labels. Future plans for Fetish and Jackin Tracks include a great deal of Joey's original work, and a few surprises from some new groundbreaking artists; watch out for a new release every month.
