  • Show Times: Stereo Soul

    Monday 12.00 - 14.00

I started buying 12inch Hip Hop records while still at school but I remember first hearing House music listening to Dj's Colin Favour and Colin Dale spin Techno and House on a then pirate station in the late 80's.


Friends will tell me they always remember me with 2 different HiFi stack systems trying to blend 2 records together so i guess mixing was always something i wanted to do.


I progressed to a pair of dodgy Soundlab turntables before finally getting my Technics in around 1995 which are still going to this day before moving on to the CDJ'S. I got hooked on to House music listening to DJ's such as Bobby & Steve and Paul Trouble Anderson, spending many a day trawling through vinyl in my local record shop.

 

Influence


I would say I love the deeper soulful side of House music M.A.W and Frankie Knuckles have been a big influence on me and more recently producers like Mark Francis & Jihad Muhammed and not forgetting the UK Rhemi and Sean McCabe are smashing it at the moment.

 

Past Events


I have played at some great venues including; M.O.S, Egg London ,Fez club Cambridge and Bar Rumba and Camden Palace back in the day .

 

Highlights


Playing at a street festival in London in front of a huge crowd which went back for miles. The place really went off.  More recently playing the pool stage at the wicked GO IBIZA 2017 surrounded by friends, family & a beautiful crowd.
