Ive been on a musical Journey since 70s – i can still remember the very first time i put on a pair of headphones on hooked them upto a old flat style teak hifi and heard dark side of the moon Pink Floyd – it was like being in another world-i then goto into usa funk & northern soul scene followed by a major fascination with the Street Sound Electro era from the early 80s,i started to play around with tdk tapes and do my own edits trying to create a mix,i dreamed of one day learning how to dj mix scratch-around mid 80s i use to be hooked to radio 1s Jeff Young bigbeat show which played all the early house anthems from underground scene all over worldwide,,soon after this i got into the acid house scene which took me all the way upto 1991 !!
i got my hands on my very first belt drive soundlab Dp1 & a realistic Tandy mixer,i would stay up all night,destroying crossfaders with wd40 learning how to scratch, i soon sussed beat mixing out but soundlabs had to go,i got my very first technics 1210 around 1992 and other a few weeks later,i still use the very same decks today- i practiced like crazy & soon started getting small gigs in derby @ illegal all night parties..I must thank derby’s Number1 jungle scene dj/priomoter KEVBROWN Aka Dj KGB for giving me a chance with my first ever spot,thinking back if kev had never gave me a chance i dont think i would be still djing now.Respect for me soon grew and i progressed into club scene/pirate radio Star Fm-Radio Freedom-sonic fm,i still own nearly all of my vinyl.I use to dj @ a club in derby called THE LO CLUB ! this was the best underground venue in derby,the nights were called Unity (see my pics for oldskool flyers)
i supported the prodigy in 1994 @ derby uni infront of 1000+ people – it all seems like a blur now meeting Liam Howlett / keith Flint – this will allways be my claim to fame – And actually making them dance listening to me back stage is the ultimate surreal buzz !!
Present day fav music is (Deep Melodic Atmospheric dnb)
