Im into allsorts of music rangeing from motown to death metal but nothing compares to undergound Drum n bass, Jungle, Uk Garage, Old skool, Hardcore, Techno, Speedcore e.t.c. Ive been into the underground scene since 1992 when i heard a fantazia tape that my brother had.
Thats when my love for Hardcore, Break beat and Drum n bass started. I was only 12 at the time so couldnt afford decks and a mixer then, or even really understand the concept, but i knew i loved underground music more than anything else.
I kept up to date with all the latest rave tapes and started understanding more and more what mixing was, and was amazed by the whole concept. I eventually got my own set of belt dive soundlab dlp1 decks and a kam gm25 mixer when i was 14. I spent every spare penny i earned from paper rounds and birthdays/christmas e.t.c on vinyl.
By this time Hardcore and Drum n bass had split into two different genres, and i favoured the Hardcore/4 beat side of it.
Since then ive never looked back, ive never really had a favourite dj ive always admired most of the djs that have made it in this industry, and the difference of styles and tunes that they bring to the table.
Ive played on numerous radio stations over the years, including Dubplates.co.uk (Drum n bass), History of hardcore.co.uk and im currently doing a saturday night slot on Kraftyradio.com.
Ive had a few sets on pirate radio stations around the south coast area.
I was a resident hardcore dj at club BN1 on brighton seafront back when i was 19. Ive played numerous sets at deep cover drum n bass raves in Hastings.
In 1999 - 2000 Hardcore went through a slump / roughpatch, there wasnt all that many good tunes coming out, and rave attendance figures werent as good, plus i had given up the things that used to keep me up dancing all night at the raves, if you get what i mean. i kind of went off the whole underground scene and did other things for a couple of years.
I eventually started listening to the latest stuff that was being released Hardcore wise and loved what i was hearing. Since then ive been buying vinyl again old and new and going to some events that appeal to me.
i played out at radioactive hardcore in bedford in 2007 which went down really well, although i played stuff from around 97-98 era.
Nowadays im lot more picky about what i mix and what i listen to, im not to into the really repeatitive cheesy side of hardcore (well not all of it), i like whatever sounds a bit differrent, unique and well produced. im more known for my older style sets that i play on the radio, but occasionly bang out a newish set with tunes i like. i still havent got round to getting any cdjs yet but its on the cards.
