Genres: House, future house, garage, brekbeat, drumstep, commercial dance, chart 90s – current
Style: I use controllers and pads plugged into my laptop or PC and use traktor or mixcraft to make my tracks and record a set. I have a huge library of mp3s rather than CDs and vinyls, although I started on 1210s before moving onto pioneer cdjs and now I use a numark nv2 controller, I’m more of a build up and then drop dj so like to get the most out of a track rather than quick mix which is probably he most popular style now, I tend to use at least 2.5 minutes of a track and no longer than 4 minutes depends. I like the long crossovers and fades and would aim for anything between 16 bars and 64 bars when mixing, I’ll mix between 120bpm and 140bpm 95% of the time, unless there’s sub dnb or breakbeat I’m using
History: started in my bedroom when I was 15, got a first gig as a DJs assistant in a bar called the basement in Maidstone when I was 18, before getting my own 2 hour slot in the same club for a house set on Thursday and Friday nights for 6 months. Whilst living in maidstone I also supported some acts in ikon and the loft, I had a set for student nights at ikon on a tuesday and 2 months in the loft as a garage DJ, I moved to Charlton when I was 20 and took up a residency in the valley every Friday as a disco DJ playing chart tracks in private functions, I had a 3 month set in the earl of Chatham in Woolwich playing commercial tracks which was a 4 hour set on Saturdays. After that I moved to bexleyheath where I didn’t have a regular set but played a few one offs to help some friends out in the tolgate and crush in dartford . I started a family and begun to realize that working Monday to Friday and djing was giving me limited time with my family so I stopped gigging and carried on djing and remixing as a hobby on my PC at home, now I’m wanting to get back into live djing and streaming rather than just creating a set and posting on my SoundCloud
