Need a gift for a gifted musician?
First music I bought was Herbie Hancock's Rocket which got be into the breakdance scene around the age of 6. Continued my love of music with mainly Hip Hop, then into the dance music scene around 1991 listening to pirates in London such as 88.4 Hardcore FM, Sunrise, Rush, Defection and Kool. Started buying tunes in 1992, got decks and started making tapes, playing small house parties and illegal raves in woods. First rave/club I attended was at Rocket on Holloway Road in 1993 and it spiralled from there. Moved away from London was I was 16 and put on the first weekly jungle/d&b night in Norwich with friends, had DJ SS, Mickey Finn, Roni Size, Dr S Gachet etc all come and play sets. Slowly drifted out of DJing professionally when I got a 'real job'. Boring. Love for the music was rekindled recently mainly by Doc Scott's Future Beats series which proved there was still decent D&B being made. Watch this space for my own productions soon.
