Hi and thanks for taking the time to read my profile. I first got behind a pair of 1200’s at a house club in 1990 but cut my DJ teeth many years before running a sucessfull mobile outfit with two friends- that mobile roadshow was called Expansions Roadshow.
Playing soul, rare groove and disco from the 60's onwards we played to packed danbcefloors every weekend for six glorious years. Interesting to note that at that time I was following some soul DJ's called Paul Oakenfold, Pete Tong and Trevor Fung - how things have moved on!!
Then one day in 1989 all that changed when I was introduced more fully to a new musical genre I was was only experimenting with on my "disco" dance floors. That music was house. I'd been playing the odd house track since 1986 - loving the pumped up 4 on the floor beat.
Impressed with the music that was coming out of Ibiza, Rimini and Amsterdam and being played at clubs in the UK like Passion, Shoom and Yikes - I decided it was time to give up the disco and dedicate my time to playing in clubs and running my own parties.
By hassling other DJ's and any promoter who's phone number I could get I was lucky in 1995 to be firmly routed as resident DJ to one of the UK's biggest club nights (and first super clubs) of that era in the massively popular Full Monty and soon after the legendary House of Windsor - both located at the 2000 capacity Mirage nightclub in Windsor.
I then followed the Full Monty to their new home in Reading, long before Reading became a UK hotspot for clubbing with clubs like Mangoes where I now play guest spots.
I have always held the belief that I am here to entertain and not educate the dance floor and I possess a remarkable ability to set a dance floor on fire from my first track. I fully use the 30 years of musical knowledge I have gained, forging it into a two hour microcosm of dance music with a soulful yet tough edge. I definitely have my own sound.
Production came much later. I just didn't have the time to run a family and a 9 til 5 job and find time to get into a studio as well.
That's all changed now with my two sons growing up and I'm experimenting with a number of different styles fusing together elements from my favourite artists, remixers and genres - sometimes all in the same track.
I'm still learning and have a long way to go but if I can produce music like I can play it then watch out world.
Take a listen to my latest track called Stellar - a remix of Antons Theme engineered by Ali Wilson. Also listen to my remix called U Make Me Feel So Good and the Hip Hop away track commissioned by Quantel for a HD Movie trailer. Follow me and I will return the favour
