With a dope style which has been harvested from spending years celebrating the art form alongside the biggest DJ’s on planet earth, I’m known for my no-genre style of party rockin’ which has been compared to performances by Z-Trip, DJ-P and DJ Yoda.
Outside of live performances, ‘White Eyed Influences’ and ‘Charity Shop Tapes’ helped create an awareness of my skills, alongside my work with super producer IRN MNKY, the legendary DJ Shadow, Mister Jason of Porn Theatre Ushers, and various artists in the WY circle. I have not stopped since the first day I laid hands on my first turntables, a pair of second hand belt drives which cost me £50.
My DJ life has me performing at festivals and venues up and down the country, supporting many artists in more ways than the obvious, and I live the Hip-Hop lifestyle of creativity each and every day.
I have shared the airwaves with Todd Terry, Graeme Park and Alistair Whitehead and more when I had my funk, breaks and beats show ‘Therapy Sessions’ which went out weekly on Northern Underground radio. Been the scratch DJ in the band vAndal supreMe, DJ’d for my good friend Mystro aka MysDiggi on several occasions. Had various clothing brands, created and run many nights/events, rubbed shoulders with the good and the great.
All in all I guess you could say I’ve paid my dues, honed my current skill set over a very long time, and I have no intention of letting the hard work slip.
