Why did you choose your DJ name ?

It’s what everyone called me anyways.. 😉

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

I left school in June 1990 and Danny Donnelly had left a few years earlier and was opening a record shop, Boogie Times, so we were attracted to that straight away. Listened to Sunrise, Centreforce and a few other stations and just started buying records. Got my first decks at age 21 and just played at home and the odd pub/bar nights that friends ran. Started raving around 1990 too. It wasn’t until  2009 that I actually started on where I played for a few years until it closed down. A few years ago I sold all my vinyl and decks but got a usb with all the tunes that Dan J (kool fm) had, and boy was it a collection. So I bought a cheap controller and was hooked all over again. Fast forward to now and I have a ddj1000 all set up in my summerhouse like a studio with artwork etc on walls and have been on divineradio London since October last year…
