Hey! So lets start simple, when did you start DJing and what attracted you to it?
I got my 1st set of decks on my 14th Birthday so many moons ago… they were a pair of belt drive turntables and a box of records, I would be in my bedroom and I would practice every day, what attracted me to it was the my first rave one minute I was moshing at a metallica gig and the next I was dancing to this sound that changed my life forever, I knew then what I wanted to do
What is it you love most about DJing?
The music and the feeling of playing my own music that I have made that the day in the studio and being able to play it out that night, watching the reaction from the crowd, the hands in the air the smiles and happiness on all the crazy lovely people in the crowd…
Do you have a number one gig you have played?
There has been a few, but I think playing for an event called cheeky little monkey has to be one of the best gigs
Why was it the best?
From start to finish it was mental, people were bouncing off the walls and I have never seen so many happy facing in all my days
What is your most common genre you mix, or do you enjoy switching them up?
I really love the deep tech house that has being made at the moment some of it reminds me of lazy house sounds years ago, and yes I love changing it up from funk/soul/disco to all genres of house, I love it all
Do you often showcase your new songs in your mixes?
I certainly do, in every weeks show
What is your favourite venue and why?
There are sooo many!! But Turnmills will always be my favorite, followed by fabric and the egg club
Do you have any upcoming gigs we should keep an eye on?
Not at present, taking some time out to finish my new album
Finally, do you have a favourite mix online we can listen to?
There are many on my social media pages but this is one that I am enjoying at the moment!
