I was lucky to be introduced to Hip-Hop in it's Golden Age. It was a glorious time, with some of the best rappers & djs releasing classic after classic.
I naturally evolved into funk, soul, blues and jazz, where most of the hip-hop I loved, was sampled from. I started diggin' in back alley record shops all over my native Dublin and became a fiend for vinyl.
Around this time, I was listening to a pirate station called Jazz 89.8FM which played all sorts of music. I auditioned a mixtape and I landed a weekly slot, which lasted for 6 amazing years. During this time I was DJing all around Dublin as well as residency at Jazz FM club nights. I also played a set at the Cork Jazz Festival, Ireland.
Since then, I've moved focus towards more upbeat, bass filled, remixes & mash-ups, but still love the funk, soul and hip-hop.
In 2009, I moved to Vancouver where I joined CITR 101.9FM with a show called Bootlegs & B-Sides where I played the cream of breakbeats, glitch-hop, funky breaks, mash-ups, covers, dubstep, ghetto funk, drum n bass, house and hip-hop. I was nominated by the public for the Canadian DJ Stylus Awards for College Radio Show of The Year 2012. Had a residency in Fan Club Vancouver as well as a regular feature in The Electro Swing Club Vancouver's events. In 2016, returned to Dublin am an currently pumping out the Bootlegs & B-Sides on Phever: TV-Radio "Ireland's Sound of the Underground". You can watch me spinning live every 2nd Sunday from 8-10 pm at http://phever.ie/
