Ean Golden is a name closely associated with the rise of digital DJing and controllerism, mainly through his championing the scene in San Francisco at the turn of the century, his input onto the design of some early iconic DJ hardware, and of course through being the founder and figurehead of DJ TechTools.

In this honest and contemplative edition of Tales From The Dancefloor, Ean shares stories of his early life as a DJ, how he’s ridden some of the highs and lows of a unique career, and how a near breakdown in Ibiza led to a period of soul-searching… and a new direction. Now living in New York, Ean explains why recently, he’s decided to return to the spotlight at DJ TechTools, and what he plans to do next.
