Dj Mike Speed.

Hi my name is DJ Mike Speed, I'm 41 and live in West Yorkshire near Leeds. I've been dj'ing since about 1986.

Started off in a youth club playing all kinds of stuff, but early acid house, hip house and classic british hip hop kept appearing in the mix, this is when I started to collect 12" vinyl with my twin brother, there was the odd bit of cheese added at times!

In the late part of 1991 we both got shows on the local pirate radio station Wacky FM, I played 9 while midnight every Friday night and also dj'ed with my brother on a sunday morning. We transformed Wacky FM in to a all dance music station nothing like this was being played like this in our area, a longtime before the likes of Kiss FM yorkshire. I also played a regular show on sister station Unique FM in Huddersfield. After a number of DTI raids, it was time to call it a day in 1995. I was mainly playing Oldskool Hardcore, Jungle, Rave, Early Techno and some Commercial Dance.

I'd been mixing on all different types of belt driven decks until I bought a pair of Technics in 1995, I always admit the belt driven decks did help me out on my mixing, but the Technics helped me so much. My music tastes were changing around this time too, delving in to more Uplifting House & and the Harder Piano tunes after starting to go to the ARK nights in Leeds. In 1996 I got a slot in a club, Eruptions, playing alongside some great Dj's including Steve Lugi, Leeds Gallery veteran until 1999. My music was getting harder, playing the very early Hard House sounds & Uplifting House, developing in to a Funky Hard house / Hard house sound with the odd bit of Edgier Harder Trance. I pretty much kept this style until around 2003 doing the odd club gig and loads of house party's. In 2003 I decided to start collecting Oldskool Hardcore, Jungle, Acid, Rave and hip house tunes in digital format & the odd bit of vinyl still. I know do mainly house party's & concentrate on doing good classic sets. I also keep up to date with all kinds of different trends of electronic music & dip in to all kinds of different styles. I'm in to all kinds of music technology, including Tracktor & Ableton Live (currently in learning!). I've also started mixing digitally too. Also dj'ed on Renegade Radio for 4 years & Phatt 100Fm in Huddersfield for 2 years.

I'm the main driving force behind Rejuvenation's, Rejuve Radio | Underground & Oldskool Beats | 24-7, Catch me on www.rejuveradio.me | Friday Night Live | 8-10pm | Alternate.
