Stuart was brought up in a music loving household and bought his first album at the grand old age of 7 which was Shalamar and he feels this set the tone for his love of Disco, Soul, Funk, R & B and the like. Always a lover of uplifting music, Stuart stuck with this while all others around him were into Rap, Hip Hop e.t.c of the more aggressive type. Coming out of the late 80's a Stuart fell in love with House music and then the rave scene and various other genres that were spawned from it. Eventually Stuart brought his first set of decks in 1990 and so the DJing began. Euro House (R & S records, Music Man were the big labels at the time, out of Belgium), while the route remained the same with some people being permanently into House music all through the 90's Stuart took the path of many others and continue onto Hardcore (NOT TO BE MISTAKEN WITH THE TERRIBLE HAPPY HARDCORE) this is when he started getting plays in local clubs, bars and on pirate radio then Drum & Bass, Jungle. Whenout celebrating a friends birthday in early 1995 at La Casa Nostra (Leicester Square) and after hearing the bass driven, Soulful sounds of US House and early Underground Garage it had an impact and not liking the way the Drum n bass & Jungle scene were going decided to make the change.
Within 2 Months of changing to House and Garage in 1995 he was offered at residency at local club Renaissance, first of all playing house and then eventually all Garage as the scene and following progressed. During this time lots of large promotions and DJ'S played at the club but the promotion that lasted the long haul was Garage Experience run by DJ Jon Fernandez & promoter Paul Leseuer. Jon and Stuart were the residents for 4 years sharing the decks with The Dreem Teem, Matt Jam Lamont, Karl Tuff Enuff Brown, Norris The Boss Windross e.t.c you get the idea. They both also had to split their time between DJing for Garage Experience and at the only Garage Club in Tenerife RAH RAHS (Later known as Escape).
In 2002 after playin the same tunes night in and night out (Some that he didn't even like anymore due to the way the Garage scene was ruined commercially) for 7 hrs on the trot in Tenerife, it took its toll and Stuart hung up his Headphones.
In 2009 Stuart was offered the chance to buy CD decks and decided to start up again. For some time he was listening to Soulful House and decided this was the route he was taking. Fast forward 6 months and Stuart had around 6 mixes up on Soundcloud and was continuing to plug away on facebook. In March 2010 Stuart was given a monthly guest slot on Frances BeatwinusRadio, in April 2010 one of his mixes was noticed on Soundcloud by Dani Fagan of SOS Radio (saveoursoul,es) and within a month had his now popular Tuesday night Deep Soul Sanctuary show (www.saveoursoul.es/sanctuary.htm) facebook event here:
https://www.facebook.com/events/421366904608858/ which celebrates its 3rd year in May.
In 2010 with the demand for Old Skool Back 2 95 House and Garage events increasing Stuart contacted Paul Leseuer with a view to starting up Garage Experience promotions again. Paul agreed but due to other commitments couldn't carry on promoting and the baton was passed over to Stuart. Since then Garage Experience has been a success helping the old fogies to relive their youth a few times a year bringing in guests such as Matt Jam Lamont, Booker T, Martin Larner and Jon Manning among others with himself residing alongside his SOS/Fresh,Sweet & Sexy partner in crime DJ Mr cSp.
In 2011 Stuart also started residencies with central London based Fresh,Sweet & Sexy and Maison Soiree which he still holds now. After playing guest shows for other DJ's shows including Myles Chalmers Naked Soul Radio show and Malik Fulsouls HouseSundayz both on ImageRadio.com he also expanded his Deep Soul Sanctuary show to HouseStationRadio.com (www.housestationradio.com), YouBroadcastRadio.com (www.youbroadcastradio.com) and more recently www.RedSeaDanceRadio.com .
Stuart's love for the Underground will never be compromised which you can tell when listening to any of his club sets or shows and is very proud of that fact and where his choices have now taken him. He loves everything about the Deep Soulful House scene the Music, People, Vibe and Atmosphere that is witnessed at the events. You'll never see anyone without a smile on their face and to him that is what it is all about.
