WHO IS ANYTIME DJ?
AnyTime DJ was started by DJ Jimmy, a DJ with over 19 years experience DJ'ing in Perth. His love for music began very early on when his sister (being 5 years older than him) began introducing him to various types of music whilst in her own teenage years. Music ranged from dance, to R&B and pop. Also heavily involved in music was DJ Jimmy’s brother who introduced the very alternative side to his sister’s music in the form of grunge, heavy metal and rock. These styles gave DJ Jimmy a very broad appreciation for music, realising that any music was able to positively change the mood of people...
Fast forward 17years and AnyTime DJ was born to give DJ Jimmy a more formal presence on the Perth DJ scene. 18 months later DJ Ado (Adrian Glendinning) joined the team after presenting as a skilled DJ who carried all the other elements that DJ Jimmy felt embodied AnyTime DJ; huge positive energy, a critical understanding of high customer service, exceptional communicator and simply - someone who wants to have fun!
Where it all started...
As his collection of music began to grow overtime his reputation began to grow as someone who “knew music”, and before long he was asked to control the music at a close friend’s 16th birthday party. With no mixing equipment this started out in the form of selecting a large range of music and creating a ‘journey’ for the night that gradually built up to a high energy climax. Many CD’s and hours of careful song selection saw 3 CD’s burnt that ended up as the play list for the night...
The first gig
After his first gig DJ Jimmy realised he needed more control over the music, so after a favour from a musically talented friend he was able to borrow a mixer and CD player. Combining this with another CD player and his parents sound system DJ Jimmy DJ’d his own 16th birthday party with the help of a friend who also loved music. This taste gave the first real control of the music and from here on he knew what he had to do – save money and go shopping...
Starting with the right gear
It first started with the bare minimum, a Stanton RM3 mixer and Technics headphones. Playing songs from two normal CD players didn’t quite cut it though as DJ Jimmy needed to blend the songs together…which saw his equipment list grow by the introduction of the Denon DN1800F. At the time this was the nightclub industry standard CD player, so what better equipment to learn from right? This enabled him to learn how to beatmix by listening to the music and adjusting the tempo accordingly, a skill many of today’s DJ’s lack as they simply look at the BPM (beats per minute) and match each song. The desire to become a fully credible DJ saw the introduction of turntables to be able to play vinyl records and “scratch”. Now his setup was fully loaded and the parties consistently came through...
Fast forward to now...
A regular flow of gigs continue to keep DJ Jimmy busy with any day of the week at any time seeing him behind the decks. Weddings, parties, corporate events, schools and venue based work see a constant need to evolve and stay up to date with current trends.
His greatest and most ultimate feeling is when he see's people enjoying themselves through the music he has carefully selected and played.
The Family Man
DJ Jimmy is married with 3 kids in a very fun and energetic household where music is loved as much as he did when he started. Music is always playing somewhere in the house often leading to regular lounge room dance-offs. His equipment is ready to go at a moment’s notice between gigs for when people need a DJ, AnyTime.
Where it all started...
The very first humble iPod found it's way into DJ Ado's hand at the age of 9 and from there it was stuck like glue with headphones on his head! After that he always had to have the latest device because he was always running out room for more music!
A year later his parents gave him his first DJ mixer for kids where DJ Ado wasted no time putting it to use at his vacation care program, playing music for everyone when they were outside.
At the age of 14 DJ Ado upgraded to a more advanced piece of technology - a CD DJ Deck which helped to mix the music more seamlessly. This very deck was used for his own radio show; DJ ADO RADIO, which kicked off in 2010 combined with a basic PC, a couple microphones and a super fast ADSL connection! In most cases he needed more than one computer, seeing him nick his parents one most often to get the show happening
DJ ADO RADIO broadcasted fortnightly from his garage or verandah with friends, and included guest speakers, performances and even giveaways to his listeners! Little did he realise that the creation and delivery of this show was setting the foundations to him becoming an incredibly organised and creative person, the perfect attributes to become an AnyTime DJ!!
The first gig
in 2014 DJ Ado was asked to DJ the birthday party of his radio show Co-host. Armed with his CD DJ mixer, 2 x PA speakers bought from Cash Converters, some lights and a smoke machine from Dick Smith he was blowing the house down! Incredibly humbled that the night was 'made' with his DJ skills DJ Ado soon became the only person in his circles that was called to DJ their events.
Growing with the right gear
Since his first gig, DJ Ado has continually grown his range of equipment, now running the industry standard Traktor DJ application, combined with the Control S8 controller (coming up from his S4) in 2014. His Cash Converters speakers have also matured to the high end QSC and Electro-Voice speaker products, ensuring every one of his perfectly timed mixes is delivered with incredibly clarity - and loud enough to fill a room!
Deal with a proper business
An extensive life in retail and small business has seen both DJ Jimmy and DJ Ado develop an emphasis on customer focus, ensuring that communication is always healthy and proactive.
The business's assets are fully insured, so attendance at any event can be done with full confidence of any outcome. Furthermore full public liability insurance is held up to $20,000,000 AUD, because sometimes people like to have a little too much fun!
AnyTime DJ is a registered Australian business that provides invoicing of all event costs so you have full transparency of your business relationship.
