    Me: I have at one time or another been into most genres and styles of music, its in the blood, as all my family are, or were DJs... I was brought up on a diet of Reggae, Dub, classical, funk, blues, jazz and loads of rock'n'roll so its not to surprising that I started collecting records just into my teens and have been privileged to see in acid, house and early prog/trance. As a teenager I was very adventurous and started clubbing at quite a young age and was a regular to The Manor Born and The Venue in the north of England to name a few spots. This was a very exciting time for me as clubbing was really fresh then and I connected with the culture completely. Iv been to loads of different types of parties and just love getting down to most stuff, but especially like deep, driving, organic and dynamic music.


    I have always been into what is commonly known as Trance, but I feel this term depends on what the individual perceives it as, I hear it to be hypnotic and energy driven music that you feel and react to...

    I took to hardcore (the first time round) to begin with then started to hear imported music from Europe with more of an energy to it, along with listening to masters Sasha, Nick Warren and Diggers at the time as well this truly set me on an quest to be as close as I could to dance music as possible. I regularly badgered my mates with decks for some play time for ages and it took me a few years to get my own set up and was (and still am) found wearing headphones all the time. I used to listen to mix CDs over and over to try and workout how to mix, but I am mainly self taught; I think if your interested in something enough you learn it instinctively. Recording a mix CD a day helped me fine tune things and I found gave me a better technical understanding and ability which enables you to spend more time experimenting with direction, transitions and track selection in mixes and when I wasn't mixing I was reviewing what I had recorded. I studied the craft until I had learnt how to manipulate tracks into concepts and forged ideas that spanned into soundscapes and so after being to some of the best parties and festivals and witnessing just about every DJ going and being a time served rave monkey I now am aiming to make a living doing what I love. I really feel I have something to bring to the table, its that deep feeling of love, pride and commitment to DJing and Music.

    I have just completed building a modest music studio and am at the moment learning the fundamentals to lead to my own productions. At the moment I am using Cubase, but mainly Ableton Live to edit tracks and create intros and sample work but am still using the decks for DJing, although I can see the producer and DJ coming together in live performances more so every day and have a few music projects with others that will take me further in that direction which is very exciting.


    I have promoted two of my own club nights at local venues called: 'The Quickening' (1998) and 'Sanctuary' (2005-2006), played quite a few small gigs + festies over the years, been involved in advertising and marketing and am part of several music projects but recently have taken more of a serious approach to promoting myself professionally and have started to push radio plays, club promoters more and also DJing comps, the first of which I entered recently and won (Trancefix.nl). I have played along side recently (to name a few): Pedro Delgardo and James alexander/Kid (Tension), Shaun M (Hardtimes), Jonah, Pulsar, Alex Powell, Scot Project and Sied van Riel.

    Heroes: Armin, BT, Sasha, Above+Beyond, Tiesto, Tony de Vit, Danny Tenaglia, Roy Aires, Bob Marley + me Dad.
