The summer of 1994 was the season I began my DJ outing. Two very worn-in Sound Labs belt driven decks with a 2 channel mixer and a bag of old dusty house and 2-step garage vinyl for me to practice in my room.
Spent most of my days practicing and listening to radio stations to pick up tips and techniques. I would sit all day listening to DJs such as EZ to understand holding beats and timing.
My career :
I’ve played at every major club and promotions in London and the North of England. I’ve co’ run my own promotions (Love&Harmony) which started in 2008 after winning a DJ competition with a very well known London radio station. We took Love&Harmony all over Great Britain and even to the famous O2 in London (Greenwich) The white Isle’s of Ibiza was graced by us too.
Radio is a lot different to clubland so I try to give listeners something different. Tuesdays on Select is a show very different with a mixture of House, Funky House, Deep House, Tech House and what’s got me a rep Latin House. I’ve picked up regular listeners from the USA right out to Australia and more.
