I started mixing back in 1991/1992. My main influences were mostly Dublin based Dj’s and some fantasia mix tapes also exposure to some early Sasha , Dave Seaman tapes.
In 1992 I got stuck into his mixing then got his first break in one of Dublin's earliest dances clubs SIDES D.C. also later going on to hold some more guest slots. In 1994 I held a forth nightly residency in Groucho’s in Dublin's Powers court centre. Gavin started to Branch out hosting regular party’s throughout Dublin City in secret locations and invite some of Dublin’s elite to join in the mayhem.
In 1996 I Joined the ranks of Dublin’s Kiss 105.8 of and stayed on until 1999 then moving to Nova Dance for another 2 years. I then took a break from radio and Dj for family reasons and renewed my love for live radio in 2009 on Dublin's Tonik and then Play FM Dublin and left in the Summer of 2012.
By the Mid nineties 1995/1996 most the the Clubs in Dublin had closed there doors and Dublin went through some what of a transition (see this link) (http://www.johnbraine.com/music/words/history-of-dublin-clubbing.html) other clubs to come on board were theTemple of Sound, and later the Temple Theatre, Red Box and Pod of which are today closed.
By this time I would have played and ran some night’s in Temple Theatre - Crypt - Mc Grath's 13th Floor- Life Bar - The Vatican - Asylum.
His work commitments continued to collide with his passion for Dj’s so he took a break for a couple of years he later returned 1n 2006 and played some music in the intimate surrounding of String fellow’s Dublin then later held a residency in Sin Temple bar in Dublin until October 2007.
In 2008 Gavin started to build his passion for music production with his old Kiss Fm colleague Barry Dempsey. Barry having advised Gavin on what he needed to get his production career on track. Gavin invested in Music production software.
Nowadays with Dj’s 10 a penny in Dublin city I try to play most of his sets through vinyl weather this is an old school gig or a House night. I try to use Tractor Scratch pro with timecode vinyl as much as possible also Pioneer CDJ's and other midi controllers, I try to be adaptable as the equipment available is constantly changing and Dj software and products been introduced all the time
