UK, Devon boy through and through, started listening to dance music and visiting clubs in 94’, regularly attending venue’s in the south west like Verbeer Manor, Club Kaos, Plymouth Warehouse, Burston, Pawlett Manor, Kingsley Leisure centre, The Tube, The Bud Club and various free parties, luvvin all kinds of Breaks, House, Trance and Oldskool, from the deep to the uplifting!
I started buying Vinyl in 98’ and began to learn the art of blending tunes whilst landing a residency in my home town at a small club in mid Devon and played at various house parties, free parties etc…..
In 2000 I attempted to put on three of my own events in the local town hall which at the time proved to be very difficult as lots of complications and put myself in huge debt and by 2003 had burnt the candles at both ends if you know what I mean!lol
I always new in the back of my mind that this was not gonna stop me from doing the one thing that I’ve always wanted, just needed time to look at what went wrong and how I could learn from it and turn it into positive stuff and move on!
Have now crawled out from the undergrowth and in September 2008 created ‘The Fusion Project’ and have now got a solid team of committed persons to help drive the group forward with a strong passion!
Have booked the likes of Rennie Pilgrem, Mac & Taylor, Dj Chambers, Morphosis, Nik the Kid, Marcus Gauntlett, Kouncilhouse, Rowland the Bastard, Mark EG, Chloe Fontaine, Maxxi P, Rebecca Saforia and Dave Lewis under ‘The Fusion Project’ events (www.thefusionproject.com), Facebook too!
I have a residency on www.southwestunderground.net fortnightly and have played on the world’s biggest Breaks station NSB radio (5 times for the Sugathomp! Sessions hosted by Jusme), I’ve also played at such events in the southwest as Dark Knights, Housetrap, Badrobot, Pam’s House, KAOS and The Fusion Project as resident!
I have recently been converted to the CDJ2000’s but still occasionally play Vinyl as well.
