I’ve been into house music for over 20 years now and was lucky enough to have grown up in the North of England in the late 80’s early 90’s. This enabled me to see all the legendary DJs that built the scene. I have been DJ’ing since 94.
Over the years I’ve been into most scenes as they emerged, House , US Garage, UK Garage (NNR), Deep House, Funky House, Latin Vibes, Chicago Jack and of course the Soulful Vocal stuff.

My mixes are a reflection of those styles, usually starting off on a mellow vibe progressing through to the chunky stuff before bringing you safely back down on the other side. The common theme being great quality bottom heavy, shake your ass music, wrapped in a smooth chord coating.

Legends for me over the years – too many to mention them all: MAW, Joey Negro, Grant Nelson, Quentin Harris, DJ Spen, Karizma, Tony Humphries, Kerri Chandler, Brian Tappert, Graeme Park, Mike Pickering, Liquid People – the list goes on.

Favourite labels over the years – Strictly, Nervous, Swing City, Nice N Ripe, UnRestricted Access, Code Red, Old Skool Subliminal, Old Skool Defected, Soulfuric, Z Records, Old Skool Azuli, King St, MAW.

I moved to Sydney on the other side of the world in 2006. It’s a great place, but I do miss the house scene in the UK, theres just nothing else quite like it.

If you ever get the chance, get down to the Southport Weekender (now down South) for the best music weekend of your life! I really miss it!

Thank you for taking the time to listen. Hope you enjoy the mixes, as much as I enjoy creating them.





I’m a house head forever, at least until I die.
