A.k.a. - DJ Bartek a.k.a. - Spinwel
Ever since I was born, I’ve been involved with music and its lifestyle. Born to a Polish rock/pop star, Andrzej Zielinski who is a leader and a composer of a group Skaldowie, my house was always filled with music and many interesting an often famous stars, artists, poets, politicians etc. Growing up around a large music studio, I’ve experienced a first hand learning music process and how all music equipment works. At my very young years, I went to music school, to gain my basic musical and piano knowledge, and ever since, I’ve been fascinated with music in general. I continued to learn to play a classical piano as a young teenager. Later, as I advanced, and I learned music theory and history I also started to experiment playing other genres such as jazz, blues, gospel and even heavy metal. In that time, I played mostly keyboards and occasionally bass guitar. Consequently, I started joining different music projects, and later even started my own music groups and was also able to compose and produce, or be part of a couple of interesting albums. That’s when I also started to DJ and gained some fundamental mixing knowledge. It was something I enjoyed doing very much. In my college years, I continued learning piano (it was mostly jazz, gospel, and blues at that time), DJ-ing, and playing life gigs. This is when I also had a chance to host a college radio music program. I was also hosting many open-mic venues around town. I graduated in 2001 from Illinois State University with a degree in International Business, Management, Small Business, and Entrepreneurship. Although I graduated with a business degree, my passion for music never faded. Currently, I continue my music passion as a DJ and MC and cater my services to private parties, weddings, clubs and many other events. I also own a small studio, where I enjoy producing and mastering some of mine, and others compositions. Not so long ago I joined 104.7FM (polskieradio.com) radio team where I hosted my own music and arts show. It was a great experience, from which I've learned first hand radio equipment operation, and live show hosting skills. It is my great privilege to offer my services, whether it is recording, collaborating, providing sound, MC-ing or DJ-ing your events. I promise to make it extra special and as unique and interesting as possible. I love interacting with the crowd and I put extra special attention to song requests and general ambiance of the party. I believe this is especially important as a part of being a successful DJ/MC/Producer. I truly hope, I can share my passion with you.
