Now I have always wanted to be a DJ, or at least since I was 12 years old and we started our first drive-in disco and I was allowed to play the music at my parent's parties.
Then I heard this:
And not much later I saw this happening right in front of me.
Faithless - Insomnia (Pinkpop1998)
This guy was not just a DJ, this was an act this was a stage show like the Prodigy.
I read the news today, oh, boy. About a lucky man who made the grave. And though the news was rather sad, I could not stop thinking F not another one.
My heroes are dropping like flies, guess that is life trying to tell me something....
I have been waiting and I am still waiting for it to sink in.
Faithless - One Step Too Far
Faithless was not just Maxi although it felt like it sometimes ......it was also the piano, well synth and you know I love those black & white keys.
Sister Bliss - Deliver Me 
Those synths are so sick, but this is much bigger than most dance acts at festivals. Now there are people that can explain why their music was so groundbreaking, so I will stick to my personal story.
For me, these guys inspired me to stay alternative but allow those beats. To play dance and alternative rock in a set. I played the alternative scene and there were many people that did not want any electronic music, guitar was king.
The Grunge and Alternative Rock audiences got disgusted by anything with a beat, until Faithless made room for acts like Junkie XL, Underworld, and the Chemical Brothers.
And if you don´t think I am making sense just watch this:
Pete Tong & The Heritage Orchestra play Insomnia by Faithless
But they could turn something so big into something so small.
Faithless - In The End (live)
And this cover shows that Faithless´s music was powerful, even in the smallest settings.
Unfortunately Maxi had to take that long way home to heaven.
Faithless - Take The Long Way Home
He turned me into a DJ, and any place I played was my church. This world was his church, he was here to heal our hurts.
There is one more little thingy, if I would start this song from this point you knew I was having a great night, this for me is Faithless at his best.
That was all, guess now all that is left to do is enjoy the pics, vids, and songs he left.
