Why did you choose your DJ name ?

I started of with a few names and as time when on they either sounded childish, rubbish or another DJ was using the same name, DJ Force being one of them. So I went with my name so people knows its me

DJ Biography / overview / Bit about yourself and how you got into Djing and where you have played:

I started Djing around 93/94ish I started with some crappy hifi turn tables and progressed up to some sound labs then onto 1210s. I started playing at a few house parties, I also started to take my records to Rollers (next to the sancuary) the local roller skating rink every Friday with a friend (Dsp) and tried to play for an hour or so which worked most times. I then started to play "speed Garage" at a few pubs and clubs in Leighton Buzzard for a while then I was asked to play at a garage night just around 98/99. this lasted for a few years and then things just stopped. I started to go to Technicality around 2005/6 and I fell back in love with Drum and Bass and managed to get a few sets there to, that was a big deal for me. I started playing on an Internet radio station called PF Radio around 2006 then moved on to a station called Kunnin Minds that ended around 2008/9 and all went quiet until about 2017 when I started to play on onlyoldskoolradio and as of the begining of Febuary 2023 I became part of the managment team for energy1058 and I only play here now and I love watching it grow

What or who are your influences to play what you play?

Ratty, Tango, Top Buzz, Slipmatt, Randell, Jumping Jack frost plus many more. I remeber getting tapes from school and was just amazed by it all and just wanted to do it to. There's been many more influences over the years but right now its just being part of energy1058 and seeing it grow again but being part of whats helping it grow.

What other intrests or hobbies do you have apart from Energy1058?

I enjoy Fishing when I get the chance, biggest carp 40lb biggset cat 70lb, I also like a bit of woodworking but as I have to do it in the garden I can only do that in the warmer months.

I used to enjoy making music but that all stopped around 2012/13 and I well and truly lost all intrest in it. I do keep having an itch to have another go at it but I can think of other time consuming things to do.

I really enjoy helping Mazzie and Baza run Energy1058 and I get a warm fuzzy feeling when we hear good things about the work we do and seeing the station grow. I enjoying learning how to make things work and contributing to the website to, I have no idea how to do the things I want to do but it is fun working out and learning and then to see it work, but that doesnt alway happen.
