Colin Warn is a dance music producer and a Middle8Studio ghost producer, hailing from Seattle. For some reason he also enjoys talking about himself in the third person.
Alter ego DJ Veaux. He's been teaching music production on forums from the legendary Laidback Luke production forums to the Max Vangeli "The Lab" forums for over four years. His productions have received praise from the likes of Studio DMI, recording studio for artists like Diplo and Borgeous. He's made about 200+ tracks as of writing this bio from hip hop to dance music, and he continues to make 1-2 tracks a week.
Currently touring with Jordan Riley, so while he isn't on the road he's sitting down to figure out how he can help his fellow producer become the best artist they can be.
