Everything seemed to fall in place until the evening of one of his biggest shows in 2005. Right before performing, Devin Hinds received a phone call informing him that a dj mentor/close friend had been murdered. Within the same week, a list of horrible things occured which caused him to reevaluate the road he was traveling down. Devin's career took a drastic turn. Looking for answers, inspiration, and fulfilling a sense of patriotism; Devin Hinds graduated from Oklahoma State University and joined the army.
It was there that Devin regained his inspiration as a dj and developed many styles in which to mix and scratch to. He also came up with an idea to use his passion to help others. Devin Hinds brainstormed and researched ways to use music as a means to generate money for the people that need it. For three years DJH desired to create the website you are looking at today in order to facilitate a median to help others.
Currently Devin Hinds just returned from his second tour in Iraq and is working on multiple projects. DJH is currently trying to pour all emotions gathered from war and poverty into an up and coming CD entitled A Night in Eden. Although it is completely instrumental right now; he hopes to acquire the right contacts in which to complete a masterpiece. DJH hopes to use proceeds gathered from his CD to raise money to various Non Profit Organizations.
He is also working on a mashup CD entitled Defying Gravity in which he hopes to mix over 100 songs from multiple genres on one CD. On May 2011, DJH will be getting out of the Army and focus primarily on changing the world with music. Read more on Last.fm.
