I've been djing now since 1999, getting my first chance playing in a club in early 2000. I made the most of the opportunity and quickly grabbed a weekly residency in the Coach - Banbridge, N. Ireland (voted Irelands no1 nightcub and Irelands no1 crowd). Here I played upfront house and electro in a back room with a capacity of about 300 poeople. After a while I was soon warming up and finishing off for big name djs in the main room such as Tiesto, Mauro Picotto, Eric Morillo, Judge Jules, Scot Project, Seb Fontaine, Eddie Halliwell, Fergie etc. Soon after this I left for Newcastle upon Tyne where a half assed attempt at studying took place. I managed to get residencys in a few bars, clubs and various student nights in the area. After returning home, I once again played weekly in the Coach, and started getting hour long sets played on Cool FM (N. Irelands largest radio station). I was also getting main room sets more frequently, and started playing as a regular guest in the Network - Belfast, which was Belfasts only after hours nightclub. This was also the first year playing in Ibiza, where I played in Nitelife, San Antonio. Since then I've held down my residency, had many more guest spots and played in Ibiza every year in prestigious clubs such as Eden and es Paradis and a lot of the smaller clubs too, playing alongside Scot Project, Andy Farley, BK, Rob Tissera, Amber D, Dave Pearce, Lisa Pin Up and Alex Kidd.
I've also played at the last two Planet Love festivals in Shanes Castle, Co. Antrim. The last time I also had an live interview on Judge Jules' show, saying what the festival was all about. I then started to concentrate now on music production, with "Mayday" "Contact" "Dancing with Ghosts" and "In The End" getting support from BBC radio 1, Mixmag and other radio shows and djs. However i've now returned to my house roots, moving away from the trance end of the spectrum, but still keeping it high energy and fun all the way....
