Originally hailing from South West England but now based in Sydney, Australia his eclectic style that takes influence for multiple genres but is rooted in funk, bass & breaks has helped Doug rock some of the worlds top club such as Space (Ibiza), Ministry Of Sound (London), Home (Sydney) & Ambar (Perth) and festivals such as Motion Notion (Canada), Breaksfest (Australia) & Glade (UK).
Doug was nominated for 'Best Breakthrough DJ' at the 2009 International Break Beat awards (Breakspoll) & his label Upstart Music was nominated for 'Best New Label' at Breakpoll 2010.
