I started my DJ career back in the early-80s as a mobile DJ with MOLE DISCO & The TOUCHDOWN Roadshow (BOTH are STILL running today!). We used to spin at weddings, bah mitzvahs & 16th birthday parties, trying to get away with playing, the then underground jazz-funk, boogie & rare-groove music we loved, to a mainstream crowd. You can’t keep a good man down though, and I rapidly progressed to better things.
In London I ran the notorious ‘TOP OF THE POPS’ parties in Mayfair with my good friend Jason Van-Haeften and was a regular DJ at 'LES TEAROOMS DES ARTISTES', a popular post MINISTRY OF SOUND after-party that ran for many years in Clapham, south London.
I left the UK for my second backpacking trip (which I'm STILL on) in 1995 and ended up in Hong Kong, where I've now lived for the past 15 years and counting. During this time I have been a regular at many of Hong Kong’s top venues including, SOLAS, KEE Club, ARMANI/BAR, South Bay Beach Club, AQUA Spirit, YUMLA, F.I.N.D.S., CLUB 97 & TIVO as well as playing regularly around the Asia region.
My music style covers many musical genres from BOSSA NOVA, through RARE-GROOVES, UNDERGROUND DISCO, BROKEN BEATS & OLD-SKOOL HIP-HOP, NU-BALEARIC, OLD-BALEARIC, DISCO-RE-EDITS, 80'S BOOGIE & NORTHERN SOUL, but I'm best known for my SOULFUL/DEEP HOUSE sets. My sets are noted for their musically-knowledgeable, yet unpretentious content. NORMAN JAY, GILLES PETERSON, DIMITRI FROM PARIS & GREG WILSON are my biggest DJ influences.
I've been behind or involved with some of the most successful regular club nights in Hong Kong over the years including my long-running ‘SOULUTION’ quality House music night - now in its eighth successful year, ‘The South Bay Sessions’ at South Bay Beach Club (5 years so far) , my mobile ‘EKLEKTA SELEKTA’ lounge night (which was featured as a show on www.ibizasonica.com for a while), ‘Hong Kong Eclectic’ at ELEMENTS bar and ‘Deano Martino’, a weekly lounge night at the now legendary 1/5 bar (in its day, voted one of the top 5 ‘best bars in the world’ by Conde Nast Traveler magazine).
I've DJ'd at private parties for RONNIE WOOD of the ROLLING STONES, BUENA VISTA SOCIAL CLUB artists RUEBEN GONZALEZ & IBRAHIM FERRER & R&B artist CRAIG DAVID and have played alongside many international DJ’s including Norman Jay, Lisa Loud, BARGROOVES head honcho Ben Sowton, PACHA Ibiza resident Graham Sahara and FIERCE ANGELS Mark Doyle.
I was the Friday night resident at Hong Kong nightlife institution, CLUB 97 (www.ninetysevengroup.com) in Hong Kong for over 2 years before moving to SOLAS Bar (www.solas.com.hk ) as Launch Music Director and later Friday night resident, running my successful ‘SOULUTION’ night.
my current project is THE SOUTH BAY SESSIONS at South Bay Beach Club - a Sunday afternoon beachside venue where I've has worked as Music Director for the past 5 years.
I have also worked closely with Hong Kong record distributor LOVE-DA-RECORDS (www.love-da-records.com ) in Hong Kong and released my first (and only so far) commercial CD via Club 97 called ‘SOUNDS OF CLUB 97’ which spent the whole summer of its release in the HMV dance chart. I checked in HMV this week and it's STILL available instore now even 6 years later.
I firmly believe that MUSIC IS THE SOUNDTRACK TO YOUR LIFE..
