For Raggamuffin Whiteman the passion for Caribbean music started when he went on a 1-year student exchange to Jamaica in '94 when he was only 17 years old.
That's where he started mixing & where he learned about reggae, dancehall & soca and was shown the skills by his friends who ran Innocence Disco soundsystem.
Once back in Belgium he continued mixing reggae, dancehall, urban music & soca and also started writing his own lyrics and performing his own songs whenever he'd mix at parties.
In '99 he went back to Jamaica for 5 months where he mixed at some gigs, won 2 DJ-battles on Irie FM and cut his first dubplates.
Once back in Belgium he really started working hard promoting reggae music and the Jamaican culture by organising parties, hosting his own radio show on Radio URGent (2001-2006), performing live, writing lyrics, MC-ing, hosting and mixing at various gigs
In 2002, Raggamuffin Whiteman attended the Red Bull Music Academy in São Paulo, Brazil, where he linked up with a whole lot of other DJs & vocalists to discuss music and where he also got lots of gigs mixing & performing at hiphop clubs & reggae parties, MC-ing at drum 'n' bass raves and mixing on Brazilian radio.
Over the years he has mixed & performed in Brazil, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Jamaica, Macedonia, the Netherlands, Norway, Slovakia, Spain & the UK, and shared stages with people like Anthony B, Black Chiney, Buju Banton, Capleton, Cecile, Cut Chemist, David Rodigan, Demarco, Ky-Mani Marley, Lady Saw, Madlib, Massive B, Million Stylez, Mr Vegas, Poison Dart, Powpow Movement, Robbo Ranx, Sean Paul, Tony Matterhorn, Ward 21 & Wayne Wonder
