Your Stepdad Terry


Read the Your Stepdad Terry Interview below and share it on social media.


Please tell our readers who you are and what you do?


My name is Cameron and I am a 21 year old Psytrance DJ from Melbourne, Australia.
I focus on heavy hitting bass and upbeat sounds ranging from 138bpm to 160bpm in the form of Progressive Psytrance and full-on Psytrance.
I have played supporting acts for various Psytrance internationals such as Mandragora, Basscannon, 4I20 and others at the nightclub "Progression Sessions" and have been DJing for around 2 years.
Before playing at clubs, I was a YourShot Melbourne 2017 Wildcard contestant, where I competed with other DJs at the Royal Melbourne Hotel.

How would you describe your influences and how have they changed over the years?


Mandragora, Astrix, Coming Soon!, Raja Ram and 4I20 have been huge influences for me after seeing them play live at Earthcore 2016 when I was just starting out as a DJ.
I've always loved Psytrance but I started out playing a lot of 128bpm Minimal and gradually moved into more psychedelic sounds.
I made the switch to psytrance completely during the 2017 YourShot competition, where I met the owner of a club called "Progression Sessions" and was given the opportunity to play a supporting act for 4I20 as my very first club gig.


What´s new right now?


Right now I am working on many new sets, some of which being 150bpm+ while also trying to build a solid social media presence via Soundcloud and Facebook.

What was the biggest mistake you made when you started making music and what would be the number one tip you could give to a newcomer musician?


My biggest mistake was trying to be like every other DJ or producer out there.
The best advice I could give is to find your own sound and to not be exactly like everyone else, you need to stand out from the crowd.
No matter how good of an artist you are, if you can't break away from the crowd then nobody will be able to see you as something different.
