I was introduced to the underground scene by school friends with flyers, records & tapes from early raves. I starting to buy vinyl in 94 but it wasnt until the following year I sourced some decks (2 record players from 2 seperate hifis!) which done me until I bought my 1210's.
Labels such as Labello Blanco, Back2Basics, Moving Shadow, Renegade Hardware, Renegade, TOV, Dread, Flex, Formation, Good Looking, Hard Leaders, Metalheadz, Reinforced, Ram, V Recordings, all paved the way for my new found love of Jungle.
Within a couple of years I began playing out in my home town Royston, in Hertfordshire & also starting a small night with friends at a community centre, playing House, Drum & Bass and Hardcore.
After moving to Oxford in 1999 I got involved with www.Feelthebass.co.uk running an internet radio show with the founder of the website on a regular basis for over a year. By this time I was also spinning house and trance, and had landed sets at The Phoenix in Manchester, The Glasshouse in Leeds, and Wellos and Templars bar in Nottingham to name but a few. It all got a bit expensive spinning three genres, so I decided to go back to my roots and play D&B again.
A few years ago I helped co promote Compound, a monthly night we ran for just under a year. We decided that we wanted a bigger and better venue, and have put it on hold until the time is right.
My first residency was at Oxford longest running Drum&Bass night Source and went on to get residencies at In Motion in Banbury, Breakfreekz and Republica in Oxford, aswell as a night Called Upload in Bristol. These nights are no longer running. In the past I have had regular internet radio shows with leetradio, darkwaxradio, rbiradio and currently jungilised.
I currently hold two residencies: One at a night called Terraforms (Based in Oxford) and the other night is called ReFormed (Based in London & Bicester). I as a regular wednesday night slot on www.darkwaxradio.com streaming live from 9pm-10pm.
Some of the places i've played out in include: Copenhagen, Malmo, London, Bristol, Coventry, Swansea, Banbury, Leicester, Stoke On Trent, Peterborough, Bounrnemouth and Oxford.
I have played alongside some of the scenes best artists throughout my years djing. These included: Andy C, Shy FX, Goldie, Randall, Noisia, Total Science, Skitty, Kasra, Squire, Masheen, Loxy, Vicious Circle, D Bridge, Silent Witness, DJ Lee, Break, Lomax, Gremlinz, DJ Pleasure, TC, Distorted Minds, Die, The Insiders, Pyro, Stunna, Klute, Friction, Simon Bassline Smith, Drumsound, Klute, Friction, Special K & D'Cruze, Donny, Manifest, Subterra, Sappo, Donavan Smith, Propaganda, Fierce, Black Sun Empire, Ash-A-Tack..
Just over two years ago I ran a night called SUBSHOCK, which was a monthly night. This night catered for all Drum & Bass of all genres, with some Hip Hop, Breaks, Old Skool, Garage, House thrown in to warm up the nights. The night has been on hold for a while now, but will be returning in the near future bigger & better.
Highlights for me over the last few years have been playing a debut set for Intrigue in Bristol and also Renegade Hardware at the special link up event with Valve. Also the gigs I had playing abroad in Copenhagen & Malmo.
These days I like to mix across the board of D&B styles, mainly concentrating on the Techy/Dark and Liquid side of D&B, not forgetting the oldskool jungle of course.
Tune in every monday for my show 'Back To The Future' between 9-11pm on www.jungilised.co.uk
