I started DJ’ing in the late 80’s. Dj and organiser of Enjoy parties 1989-1995, guest djs included Phil Asher, Norman Jay, Terry Hunter and the late Dj Camacho and more, with live pa’s by Michael Watford and the late Colonel Abrams.

Enjoy parties where held monthly, roughly at some of London’s venues including Woody’s, The Vox, The Garden Club, Scala, Bijou Theatre &The Cross as well as some great photographic studios around London.

i have been a guest dj at a few other parties during the 90’s including The Wag, The Satellite club, MOS, Lost and more.  In around 1997 I had a Sunday show on heart pirate radio which lead to guest sets for Journey By Dj’s.

Had a break from Djing when i started a sign business which filled my free time.

I have continued my love for all types of music with soul and went onto start another business in music promotion.

I was a Co-founder of Rude Awakening Promotions 2000–2007 promoting house music throughout England and Europe.

We promoted for an array of labels including MAW, King Street, Jellybean, Large, Dome and too many more too mention.

More recently started a show on Real House Radio, which has run weekly for the past 5 years. This show is jointly hosted with my school friend Mickey Richards. We have recently played for Mi Casa Es Su Casa which is one of the best parties in London at the moment in my opinion. We also play at The Vault in Putney a few times a year.

I am looking forward to showcasing house music in it’s many forms, including latin, jazz, soul and afro music.
