Being brought up on a diet of my mum and dads soul disco and funk records its easy to see why i play and listen to the music i do.Music addiction started for me when electro,hip hop and breakdance broke in the early 80s.Then in 86-87 a mate played me a record, he said its called "house music" the record was adonis'no way back'.After listening and collecting the street sounds electro series it seemed like a logical progression,after all both were made or sampled by machines and both had a funny dance connected to them!!Then i slipped into the acid house scene, raves in fields,dirty warehouses and just about any place we could party! my first crack at djing came about in 91, then started eriously couple of years after...then came hardcore and jungle which i enjoyed but the itch for something new took hold so a refreshing trip to a club in mansfield uk called "renaissance" in 92, took me back to the more grown up sound of house music .Over the years ive whitnessed 100s of djs the best being dj harvey,maw,todd terry,carl cox,doc scott,tom middleton,ltj bukem,d.i.y,keb darge,david mancuso,miles holloway,elliot eastwick,cj macintosh,norman jay,mr scruff,kruder&dorfmiester,kenny carpenter,ashley beedle, to name a few. im now based in leicester and come runner up 4 times in IDJ magazines raw talent mix contest which is a record apparently!.My theory is knowledge and variety are the key aspects to being a good dj,of coarse mixing is a little part of it but its not essential,remember the the message is in the music! !Ive been djing in and around the midlands for over 20 years. ive slowed down a bit over the last year or so as family and business are full on! so i only dj once or twice a month.Although i discoverd croatia last year at the garden venue which is amazing and has opened all those old feelings so this could be a new chapter! stay tuned
