Need a gift for a gifted musician?
At a young age my Dad showed me how to use his record player, gave me a bean-bag and some headphones and let me loose on his record collection of classic / prog / space rock and some mad hippy type shit. My mums collection consisted of punk 7"s new wave, soul and reggae... I spent a lot of my childhood listening to amazing music and making mixtapes. Which was nice.
The first albums i bought were "Guns & Roses - Appetite for Destruction" and "the Prodigy Experience" (rock & rave) and my collection has been growing since. I've been DJing for a maybe 8 years and have been lucky enough to play at underground parties / raves / club nights / festivals / private parties / gigs and alongside some amazing artists / producers and performers.
I was lucky enough to be involved with ARMADA SOUNDSYSTEM representing beats and breaks on the Bristol scene a few years back when dubstep was dubstep and breakcore was peaking! Bristol = musical immersion
Then LDN for a good few years where i was resident at Z-SHED parties representing the BROKEN SOUND OF RANK and all things forward thinking and bass driven. I am currently living and working in Tokyo - which is fucking EPIC.
I listen to everything - love reggae / ragga / rock / metal / hip hop / jazz / classical... but,
ALL THOSE ARE JUST LABELS - WE KNOW THAT MUSIC IS MUSIC!
that said, i DO have preference for BASS broken beats...
and stupid mash-ups.
So i made some ..
have a listen
Comments much appreciated!

Rice and PEACE
