It was the Electro Street Sounds era that got me into underground Dance Music. I have been Mixing since the birth of the 90s Rave scene, I got my first set of turntables in 1992, before I got my decks I would listen to local Pirate radio shows such as Nottingham’s Rave FM, Derby’s Power 101 FM also Radio1s Bigbeat show hosted by Geoff Young. I started purchasing records in the mid 80s locally from Re-cords, Spot on Sounds & BPM records all based in Derby.I still own most of my Vinyl collection, and I still crate dig for tunez whenever I can.
I am self-taught at mixing and learned to scratch with some major influence & tuition from DJ Steve Fever, My first Dj gigs were at illegal all night Raves, free parties in the Derby area. I soon progressed into Bars, clubs then later on festivals. I Supported the Prodigy at Derby Uni in 1994 at Richardson hall.Back in the day I have played on events with Djs such as Bukem,Fabio,Grooverider,Hype,Brockie,Jumping Jack Flash,Dj Rap,Sy,Ratty,Pilgrim and so many more…..
My music policy : Underground,non-commercial,Deep atmospheric Drum & Bass, Minimal progressive & Deep House,Oldskool 1990s Rave scene era, Atmospheric Chilled Dub & Lounge music,70s80sfunk&soul music.
Over the past few years I have been mixing for fun, I do all my mixes at home with Technics 1210s and a Rane TTM56 Mixer and recently hooked up a Serato SL1 timecode system.
All my mixes are 100% Free !!
I do not make a single penny from anything I do, Please show your respect by hitting the Like button on my mixes it only takes a few seconds and makes what I do all the more worthwhile.
A massive shout out to all my friends on Sound cloud and a big Thank-you to all who have supported me and my mixes over the years ,I have had a break from the scene but I am back now and I will be bringing you some fresh new styles very soon.
