Need a gift for a gifted musician?
I would say I’m from the school of house, with an introduction to clubbing in Glasgow from around 1996 at nights like Pressure at the Arches, Relief at Alaska and the famed Harri & Domenic regulars at the Sub Club.
Labels like Paper Recordings, Glasgow Underground and Soma Records really moulded my love of house/techno and after 15 years Djing, I feel that often that sound still remains in a lot of my sets, even if disguised as disco or something a little more leftfield. With a love of synth, well produced percussion and anything that can lock you in a groove I’m not too fussy about genre.
Recent years in Aberdeen saw me take residency along with Chris Knox at the regular Metropolis nights, which in addition to the regular residents nights saw me warm the house for guests such as Dave Clarke, Surgeon, FC Kahuna, Felix Da Housecat, Miss Kitten and Claude Young. Working though many bar residencies has also provided a platform for more experimental sets, with a recent passion for Nu-Disco/Disco/Slomo and more downtempo sound.
I like to keep things moving and I’m a fan of contrast, believing that every set should tell a story, not necessarily have beginning, middle and end but be the type of story that you would want to read again.
