It all started back in 1994 when he had bought my first set of FAL wooded cased twin record deck player for Christmas. He was managing a small second-hand record shop at the time called Hits, Misses & Vintage Records, in Coventry. Here is where he got first dibs on the vinyl that came through the door, and boy did he bag some bangers! Some of which are still in his vinyl collection today.
He started playing at a pub called the Hope & Anchor on a Thursday night and at the Plough on London road Coventry alongside two well-known DJ’s of their time, Alan Bayliss & Will Richardson.
Between 1996-1999 he played a fair few slots in and around Birmingham to include The Dome II (named after the large metal round lighting rig around the dance floor), Pulse (now Zanzibar), Wobble, and Miss MoneyPennys at Bonds.
Now regularly in Coventry, with a fortnightly residency at Bar Coast, Dogma & a weekly slot Suzi Q’s, he was able to work alongside his long-term DJ partners, and very good friends, Huggy and Chelston, under the name; “The Soul Food Brothers”. Playing several warm up sets for God’s Kitchen, formally the Planet nightclub and former home of the iconic Eclipse, this was a massive influence in his passion for music & the rave scene back in its day. As a result, he played at the Foundry, The Planet, The Glasshouse, and Careys.
In November 2016 he came out of retirement to play at the legendary Ministry of Sound, London, alongside my good friend Kuska playing for FunkDelux. Since his return he has had sets with Crazy Daisy’s, Gatecrashers Ruins Afterparty, and Big Bamboo amongst others.
While in Ibiza he played at Mambos, Float your boat Party, Jet Apartments & Es Paradis and on my return to the UK, Ministry of Sound Summer Festivals. With a monthly club classics night at The Pippin in Coventry in place along with being asked to perform at a charity event for old school Legend, Rob May, R.I.P. which was an honour, 2018 was a huge year.
In rolls 2019 which has started with a bang, securing my own Bi-weekly show on AA1 Radio(now into his 3rd year and partnered up with James Silver, monthly slot on AATM (#JCSQUARTER ) along a guest slot on Mayhem Radio. Recently playing at Chic nightclub, now one of Birmingham’s top clubs, it’s set to be quite the year!
After converting to digital playing he has been building an event company we have invested in CDJ 2000 Platinum set up, CDJ 300 set up XDJ-ZX, along with a massive 22k Logic Ethos sound system, stage rigging, lights and lasers, inflatable Stage. Now he co-owns 3 events of his own, Raveistory, Smile with Jay G Grainger formally Cream resident and All Things House, alongside his good friend and founder of Amnesia House est 1989.
