Need a gift for a gifted musician?
I've been DJing since the early 90s, having learnt to mix on borrowed decks and borrowed time. I cut my teeth playing Rave and Happy Hardcore, then made the not-so-smooth transition into the House scene during the mid-90s. It was about this time I got my first club gigs, introducing (hate 'warming up') for the likes of Roy The Roach, Alex P and Stretch (Stretch & Vern).
A move to Brighton for Uni in 97 prompted a jump on the Big Beat Bandwagon, where I generally enjoyed a more bouncy, eclectic experience. But after graduating, I took a DJing hiatus to concentrate on other career goals.
After this break I was offered a Saturday night residency which enabled me to broaden the box. I'm currently dropping a veritable mixed, tossed salad including classic Hip Hop, Indie crossover, all manner of House tunes and good old fashioned dance music.
If it rocks, its in the box!
