Music moves me like oxygen keeps us alive. I first invested in a pair of 1210's and a Gemini mixer about 17 years ago to fuel my desire to express myself musically having never learnt a musical instrument. I started buying house music, at the time predominately the kind they called "handbag house" that all the girls would dance to and this quickly progressed to the more clubby sounds of the time. My tastes progressed to the trancey, progressive through to rave. I played at parties and social get togethers to show off my music to friends and whoever would listen. My best friend who was in a band started performing out in pubs and bars so along the way i fell into playing sets in and around his band but these took on a funk/acid jazz/soul/big beat/deep house vibe which was also a big influence. As drum and bass was emerging from the jungle i found my collection broadening still to accomdate the original amen breaks of jungle through to the liquid sounds of the new drum and bass. I frequented a club called Silverfish and went on to drop my first drum and bass set there.
Since then i have moved onto the deaded comercial residency for money and regular playing time when trying to juggle a work life. My tastes have continually developed and now freely plays around with Jackin house, progressive and electro house with some seasoning of breaks and dubstep for flavour. For me it has always been about the music and the people who connect with it and the journey i take them on. Labels that have resinated with me are Subliminal Records, Defected Records and Strictly Rythm. The DJ's whom have inspired me are Erick Morillo, Groove Terminator and Fatboy Slim whos musical selection and skill with a crowd have never ceased to amaze.
Please take the time to listen the mixes and comment if the mood takes you there. If you have the need to provide a DJ for any time slot on any of the styles i've mentioned go ahead and hit me up.
