I've been collecting records and playing music since a young age.
I have played records as a Dj since the mid 90s with a focus on Funk but I have a range of music in which I draw influence from including: Jazz, Soul, Disco, Latin, Afrobeat Hip Hop etc. While in Christchurch I hosted the long running Supafly Radio Show on RDU for over 10 years.
I've Dj'd around New Zealand and Australia as well as performances in the USA, Canada, UK and West Africa. I have had the pleasure of Djing along side some great artists such as: Mr Scruff, Lee Perry, The Mad Professor, Jazzanova, Fat Freddy's Drop, Kora, Recloose, Opensouls, Electric Wire Hustle, Manuel Bundy and Frank Booker among others.
I am also a percussionist having recorded and performed for many years with a variety of bands, musicians and producers. Some of which include:
Hollie Smith, Solaa, Ladi 6, Shapeshifter, Latinaotearoa, Marc de Clive Lowe, Nathan Haines, Tiki Taane, Scribe, The Shocking Pinks, Oval Office, P Bass Expressway, Departure Lounge, Isaac Aesili...
I currently host the Actual Proof Radio Show on Base Fm 107.3fm, every Wednesday 10am- Noon here in Auckland, New Zealand.
Tune in for a weekly dose of soul jazz funk afro latin and hiphop.
