1st Started mixing around 1995 when I was 14, Where I 1st set eyes on a pair of decks in a friends kitted out garage, sounding crap on a pair of DLP 1600's he sold them to me for 100quid where I began to learn.
Few years later I wanted to use the daddy of all decks Technic 1210's but managed to get hold of a pair of technic 1200's mk2 = nomore endless jumping of vinyl.
I also got given a load of jungle records along with the decks so began to mix hardcore & jungle together.
Wasn't until 1999 when I heard on a mates walkman a drum and bass record called "The Beginning" - Ram Records and instantly fell in love, I sold all my hardcore (still keeping all my jungle) and made the switch and I have never looked back.
I used to listen to old DJ Sy tapes and learnt how to scratch like him and brought it over to drum n bass so as you may or may not notice my style of scratch is alot like his from back in the day.
As a serious DJ I mixed in a number of clubs locally but dnb has always been a frown upon style which people seems to think brings drugs & fights with it, so it stopped in most places & I carried on mixing at home making cd's for friends.
Around 2006 I invested in some Technic 1200-GLD limited edition decks (limited to 10,000) and still mix on them today and gave my old mk'2s to my little brother.
As a regular listener to www.247drumandbass.com i have been mixing on there for a few years now entertaining the listeners with DJ Turnster, Extreme, sparkie, blagga etc.
Now I make podcasts for 247 and guest on other internet radio shows but stay loyal to 247 using traktor scratch pro duo, playing all the latest MP3's over "Time-coded" vinyl on the decks. So stay here for all the latest tunes/mixes. Keep it locked, keep it loyal, keep it 247!
