Welcome to my little corner of the web. Some of you may know me by my Internet/DJ name as DreamensioN, while others may know me by my real name Noel Fairclough. So here is a little bit about both of my identities.
I’m an experienced Systems Management consultant and a Microsoft Virtual Technology Solutions Professional (V-TSP) in the Data Center space. I’ve worked extensively with government and large enterprise organisations both in Australia and overseas in the Asia/Pacific region. I specialise in Microsoft’s System Center family of products, delivering innovative solutions in complex environments; enabling my clients to get the full benefits and return on their IT investments. I also have a wealth of knowledge in desktop platform transformation solutions, private cloud and infrastructure management design. All together these skills allow me to assess, design and deploy total Microsoft centric infrastructure solutions in the enterprise. I also present at IT events such as Microsoft TechEd Australia and local usergroup events.
It started as a hobby in 1999, where I was unable to find compilation CD’s I liked with all the tracks I wanted on them. So then I figured… “How hard can it be to make your own?”. I started mixing my own CD’s just for myself, and it eventually grew into doing bootleg copies for my friends. I just did this casually until 2006, when I released a double CD compilation on the internet as a podcast download. This exploded all over the internet and I was quickly picked up by Afterhours.FM and offered one of the first residency spots on the station. This also made me one of the very first founding staff members. Since then AH.FM has grown into one of the worlds most recognisable trance music streams, and I still have my monthly show on there. Universal Language follows a 2hr format including guest mixes by world famous DJ’s and Producers. My show doesn’t follow the latest trends, and is more of a reflection of whatever EDM I am into or feeling drawn towards at the time. So when you download and listen to my shows, you will hear a mix of everything from the very latest tracks & promos, to old classics from 15yrs ago. You will hear a mix of house, trance, chillout and breaks. I am not here to give you a podcast of the current Beatport chart. I still mix my sets for me….it’s just a bonus if you also enjoy it.
