How did you first get involved in the Underground music scene?
Got my first set of decks in 97′,Soundlab DLP1600’S . I spent every spare minute on them , up to 16 hrs a day sometimes. I started buying my vinyl from Vibe Records where i met some quality producers & dj’s like Coolhand Flex and Alibi . Done a few dj competitions early on . I had a residency at a night called Point Blank that Swan-E headlined at the end of 97′. The next year i was playing alongside Kenny Ken , Brockie , Marley Marl , A-Sides and Mampi Swift at an event called STEPPERS . Other events included Alpha Project where i played alongside Randall also Deadly Fusion playing alongside Twisted Individual . All the while mixing on several internet radio stations like www.Planetdnb.com , Bassbinterrorists , www.globaldnb.com ( every saturday 8pm – 10pm GMT ) and www.brainsmudge.com ( every wednesday 9pm-10pm GMT ). I have had the odd guest slot with Flapjack on dnbradio.com also i have done a few Pirate radio stations one being RudeFM back in 2002.
