Since a young age I always felt most comfortable hanging around record shops and looking for the latest music as with most Dj's starting out.
Growing my record collection developing my own individual style and technique, travelling to endless club nights, handing out countless mix tapes this was pretty much the norm back then
Eventually this paid off playing at venues up and down the UK, being offered a residence at 'The Edge' in Sheffield and being given the opportunity to play along side Dj's such as Mickey Finn,Grooverider,Swan E,Hype & SS.
But there was something missing, I was ready for a new challenge, a new direction. This direction was influenced by Dj's and producers such as Brian Transeu, Blue Amazon,Paul Oakenfold but most of all the highly acclaimed 7 ways album by Paul Van Dyke.
Then came the introduction to Sasha & John Digweed,Listening to their style and track selection I was seriously hooked they just blew me away I then knew where I wanted to go musically.
Im now currently the resident for Upcloseandpersonalmcr one of the uks leading club nights showcasing the best djs from around the world in a intimate environment djs gracing the decks such as Danny Howells,Nick Muir,Eelke kleijn Quivver,Dimitry Molosh,Guy Mantzur,Robert Babciz,
I feel very privileged to be a part of this and thank all that have put the faith,time and effort in me.
