My DJ journey started at the age of 15, spinning Trance on a pair of Citronic PD-1 turntables in the late 90s. Inspired by the tail end of the 90s rural rave scene, I co-founded a soundsystem that played in clubs, bars (and the occasional rave!) around Mid-Wales in the early 2000s, as well as commercial functions and events.
Having then spent a number of years living in Nottingham, and later Bristol, with their incredible underground electronic music scenes, my passion for electronic music styles widened into other genres including Breakbeat, Electronica and Drum & Bass. I draw my inspiration from artists such as Underworld, Orbital, Way Out West and Autechre.
After a break from DJing, I made my return to the DJ scene in 2017, and I was honoured to join Platinum Radio London and play alongside their outstanding line up of DJ talent. My mixes are a journey though Deep House and Progressive House, drawing on my wider influences and passion for all things electronic – if its deep, melodic or atmospheric you’ll find it in my set! These days I’m playing on a DDJ-RX, but I still have the PD-1 hooked up and it’s still going strong….
I enjoy showcasing emerging artists and underground labels in my show, alongside the latest anthems doing the rounds in the clubs, and crate digging for classic gems from my collection to drop in from time to time.
Join me in the mix live every Tuesday 8-10pm on Platinum Radio London.
