My name is Tyrone Rose. In 1976, aged 1, I took my first ever steps. I walked across the room towards my fathers Garrard turntable. I've loved music ever since. I bought my first record aged 5, it was a dinosaur themed LP which I still have in my collection. My 1st stint as a DJ came in 1991 when I DJ'ed a school disco using cassettes. It was four years before a friend bought a set of Soundlab belt drives in 1995. I taught myself to mix from scratch using these belt drives before moving on to a set of Technics a few years later.
After five years of playing basements & bedrooms me & a group of like minded friends set up the promotions company FunkyDory in 1999 & swiftly secured a weekly Thursday night residency at the Green Parrot, Cardiff. Within two months we had secured a Friday night Residency at the Slug & Lettuce, Cardiff & it wasnt long before we were playing Friday, Saturday & bank holidays. We also held a very successful annual DJ competition on a Thursday.
My big break came in 2001 when I was nominated for best up & coming DJ at the inaugural welsh dance music awards which I went on to win. Our event at the Slug & Lettuce also won best pre club bar two years running. As a result, I have gone on to hold a number of local residencies & play at numerous events, the most notable being The Vocal Booth Weekender, Gatecrasher NYE, The Radio 1 Big Weekend, Time Flies, Lamerica, Coolhouse, National Anthems, Bionic, Enter The Dragon. I have also been fortunate enough to play alongside the likes of Grant Nelson, DJ Disciple, Joey Negro, Jazzy M, Bobby & Steve, Graeme Park, Craig Bartlett & Dave Jones, K Klass, Scott Bond, Jon Pleased Wimmin, Judge Jules, John Kelly, DJ Heaven to name but a few.
