Why did you choose your DJ name ?
Er it's like this officer...... I've got a a cold! (......says the youth at 6am at a Service Station somewhere in Southern England with jaw clenched and eyes er large!).
DJ Biography / overview / Bit about yourself and how you got into Djing and where you have played:
Took a while to get into DJing, it was around the time Peak FM was running in the mid 90’s that any serious attempt to learn was made. At the time DJ Klimax and DJ Uneek were running Peak FM which eventually went on to become Phase Productions that put on several events around 1996/97 and picked up quite of lot of influence from them. Skip forward and eventually got a set of 1210’s and for many years just played around at home.
Eventually a few things clicked and by chance again Klimax & Uneek gave the encouragement to get involved with Energy, just like they did with helping out with Peak FM or any of the Phase events years ago.
Have always liked the slightly harder beats, and spent a fair amount of time enjoying them around the country, trips to Fusion, Diehard, North Radical Technology, United Dance, Dreamscape, Helter Skelter, Vibealite\Pleasuredrome, World Dance, Bagleys, Club UK to name a few. Not forgetting the South Coast stomping grounds of the Manor in Bournemouth, Sterns in Worthing, and of course the local mecca of hardcore that was the Rhythm Station in Aldershot. It all added up to a crazy but unforgettable few years of raving!
Regret…………… nah…… was too busy ‘avin it!Best event attended? Probably Dreamscape 20, DJ Klimax has a similar view on the madness of that night
What or who are your influences to play what you play?
DJ Brisk for faster hardcoreDJ Druid for the Dutch influenceJay Prescott for Diehard, Helter Skelter and North memoriesClarkee for slightly different style to Jay PrescottThe Music Maker simply because he challenged the norm and pushed boundaries IMHO.DJ Fergus...... again played some very interesting choonz!
What other intrests or hobbies do you have apart from Energy1058?
Attempting to make alcohol from things growing in the garden.......definitely not a 200bpm spectators sport......good things to those who wait.
