Biography

Been djing since around 1990 around the time of acid house. The thing that first got me interested in the dj side of things was going out to some old skool raves such as Fantasia, Fantasic Ibiza, Raindance, Cryptonite and Weekend World. Milwalkees was a massive night around these times with the likes of resident dj’s like Master Safe, Clarkee and Swannie. They also had regular dj’s coming down and blowing the place apart such as Carl Cox, Dj Phantasy, Rap, Fabio and Grooverider to name a few. These nights got me hooked on the music around that time. I found the sounds to be fresh and innovitive and really inspired me to get more involved with this amazing sound. My first setup was a pair of JBL’s and got into buying vinyl. From then on I was hooked. I started to learn to mix, bang out a few mix tapes to my friends, word got about and I started playing at house parties then became resident in a few clubs around MK and played in most clubs around MK such as the winter Gardens and the famous Santurary. Over the years I’ve had slots on various radio stations such as Streaming FM, IToldUsoRadio and more recently a featured guest on DNBRadio.com.

I started the natural progression turning from Djing to producing. Years ago my first setup was some crusty apple mac running cubase and spent a few years working on that. From there I upgraded to an Akai 3000, some Roland sound modules and continued to get my head round how these artists came up with these stunning tunes. Music production changed and became more DAW at which point I switched to Reason and I’m still using it to this day… At the end of the day it doesn’t matter what software you use it’s just how you use it…

These days I’m more into producing than ever and striving to improve and progress my sound. Who knows where it will end up….
With anything in life, do something that you love and makes you happy. With some hard work and dedication, you never know what you can achieve.
