DJ since 1994, Based in Cardiff Wales
Ive been into house/dance music in one form or another since the early 90s firstly as a fan and self confessed Raver.
In 1994 I bought my first set of dex and taught myself how to mix.
Over the next few years I found myself playing at a host of local bars before setting up my own event in 1999.
This event saw the ‘FunkyDory DJ’s’ collective win numerous Welsh Dance Music awards and establish ourselves as ‘the place to be’ before heading off to the clubs.
Our accolades include being voted Wales’ Best Pre-club Bar two years running, with residencies at all Cardiff’s main events. Playing for the like of Time Flies, Lamerica, Bionic, ROAR & Enter the Dragon, to name but a few.
Residencies over the years inc FunkyDory South Wales & West, Radio Cardiff 98.7fm Cardiff, The Vanilla Rooms Cardiff, Lamerica Cardiff, Time Flies Cardiff , Bionic Cardiff , Cool House Cardiff Casa Fiesta Cardiff The Hippo Club Cardiff, Enter the Dragon Cardiff, Gatecrasher Cardiff, Cream Cardiff, Escape Cardiff & Swansea, The Model Inn Cardiff, PooNaNa Cardiff, Mi Casa Cardiff, Indigo Swansea, Cro Bar Swansea, Bar Med Cheltenham
Most memorable gigs inc Radio 1’s Big weekend Cardiff & warming up
for the legend Graeme Park @ Mi Casa Cardiff.
Other memorable gigs include warming up for Paul Oakenfold, John Kelly & Jon of the Pleased Women @ the Enter the Dragon Reunion Party's Cardiff, warming up for Madam Friction @ the breakfast club Penarth and hosting our own monthly backroom @ nights such as Lamerica, Bionic and Enter the Dragon.
Most influential of all - Playing alongside local legends Oli Jaye & Shane Morris in my 1st ever live performance in front of a REAL crowd @
The Hippo Club Cardiff – 1996 seems sooo long ago now.
I recently lost all of my back catalogue live & Studio mixes in a fatal Hard Drive incident and im currently looking to refill my profile with all new mixes...
Thanks for showing an interest and please feel free to PM me with any questions, bookings or general chat & if you happen to have any of my old mixes floating about PLEASE forward me a copy to re-build my back cat after losing a whole load of mixes through the years.
