About this DJ
I started Djing in 1993 at school/college partiesin and around Leamington Spa when I was 16.
My style was rave (old skool) at the time which then progressed to Drum & Bass when the scene split back in 1994.
At the age of 19 I moved to Nottingham to study Sound Engineering at Square Centre Studios where DJ Alistair Whitehead worked. It was there where I met other DJ's/promoters and managed to get a monthly Drum & Bass residency at the Marcus Garvey Centre.
Moved back to Warwickshire in 1999 where a new club was opening called Crazy Daisys. It was there where I was given a monthly residency mixing Drum & Bass and Old Skool alongside BBC Radio 1's Grooverider, Mickey Finn, Ratpack, Ratty and Barry Ashworth from the Dub Pistols.
I had a break from DJ'ing for a while to focus and develop my skills in the recording studio and working on my own tracks.
When I got back into the scene again in 2000, my musical tastes favoured Breakbeat, Old Skool and Drum & Bass because of the diverse styles that engineers were and still are producing. By changing these styles and moods within my sets I can always keep the crowd guessing.
I've recently DJ'ed at various clubs and bars in London, Leamington Spa, Rugby and also at a montly breaks night called MINT in which Mixmag had quoted in saying "The best little breaks night in Leicester".
From time to time, I also support a Prodigy tribute band who go by the name of 'Jilted Generation' and are currently touring the UK.
I currently run my own nights around the midlands called 'Diverse Virtuoso' playing many different styles in one night.
To describe my style would be a diverse selection of Drum& Bass, Breaks and Old Skool from past and present. I always like to keep a few forgotten monsters at the back of the record box which I like to dig out towards the end of my mix to add a real crescendo to the set and really surprise the crowds!
