My name is Ioan Straton and I am a 16 years old Electronic Dance Music passionate producer & DJ from Romania.
At the age of 4 my mom payed my first piano lessons. Later, I wanted to do something diffrent in life, like programming, web design etc. but at the age of 13 I've descovered the Electronic Dance Music Genre.
I got so into it that I knew from that moment that this will be my life. One day I will be there on the stage with my idols Martin Garrix and Tiesto djing in front of 100.000 people.
I've tried many genres, diffrent instruments, but the EDM music simply "stole" my soul.
Since then, my main and only task was to learn, to develope and to compose better and better music. I wanted to express my feelings and my life through my own creation. I wanted to make people happy and to feel the joy as I will feel it on the stage!
My goal and the only one was to make people happy and to help them with everything I got.
Why did I choose this "job"? Well, I don't really know and maybe I will never will. I dont' even call it a job, I call it a way of living.
For more then 3 years I've tried to promote my music and to attract an audience. Sadly, in my country I can not find that type of audience.
Tried DJing at house parties, small parties, even in a club. I just didn't feel it because the audience couldn't feel this type of music that much as they feel other genres.
So no luck so far. No big audience. No money earned. No fame. I've got big dreams. Very big dreams. I need to put time, money and energy into this thing. 100% dedication and no plan B. This is the only thing that I love to do and that I trully feel.
How I am going to succeed and to move to the next goal? Well, I need to be supported by an audience. By people.
I want to be signed at Spinnin' Records and Sony Music, make my music heard by a whole world and live the life I've always wanted!
The next step is to create my own Record Label based in LA, to create 3 children charities and to help those who can not get help from the others.
I want to change the world. And I will.
Started from the button and didn't give up so far. This is a long, long road. My journey. Ioan Straton's Journey.
I am Ioan Straton and for my studies, courses and equipment I request any small donation from you.
Thank you for your attention!
