From an early age, I have always loved my music it seems to take me to my inner Zen. I remember going to my first RAVE at Raindance in Barking, East London. That was it, I was hooked, I confirmed my inner thoughts that I did want to be a DJ, and I remember seeing Carl, Fabio and Grooverider, doing their thing standing as close to the DJ stand as I could to watch and being blown away.
Then over the years, I had to stop mixing because of starting a new business, wife, and kids it did not seem like the right thing to do, but I still listened to upfront dance music with a dream of djing.
My wife soon realised that I was missing my decks and brought me an amateur setup that I used for a year or two when I could, I even remember driving my wife to Liverpool for a conference and sitting in my car mixing for 6 hours waiting for her!
Then Santa got me a Traktor setup and I was hooked, I was so confused as my wife hates house music, yet she brought me this new mixer, she knew what she was doing.
Then in Oct 2018, we had our summer house built (soundproofed) at the end of the garden, where you will find me most evenings, practising and listening to music.
In December 2019, I was offered a mentorship with DJ Bergwall, I would like to say a big thank you to him for the inspiration and everything he has taught me, whilst pushing me to pursue my dreams of DJing.
I would also like to say a big thank you to Anna for believing in me and encouraging me to pursue my dreams.
In Feb 2020, I upgraded to a Pioneer DDJ 1000 and Rekordbox, In July 2020, I saw an advert for Learn to DJ Course | Advanced DJ Course | Performance Plus DJ Course | Club Pack (clubreadydjschool.com), and I decided to give it a go and past the course in Aug 2020, this then gave me the confidence to play out.
I’ve since played at festivals, several clubs, pubs, weddings and parties.
