I first got into it all when I was exposed to The Prodigy on the radio and I thought to myself this music is for me! Being at college and not working at the time, money was hard to come by. What I did spend was spent on records every week at Remix Records in Camden.
At the time my decks were the most prehistoric thing you could think of, built in disco decks!
Thankfully I got past this stage and got myself a pair of soundlabs, then in 1997 I finally got myself a pair of technic 1210’s! So there I was all set to go, with my decks and records. Now I needed to get myself known, or at least try! I handed a demo tape to DJ Triptech, he ran a pirate radio station called Feelin FM and was going to become a very good friend of mine in years to come.Another friend of mine was Geoff. Geoff and I had gone to school together, Geoff’s brother Mike (DJ Perception), along with Jason owned a wicked little record shop in Victoria, London called Elite Records. It was here that i first met Triptech and bought the majority of my hardcore from. About a year later I began playing on a different station called Hyper FM, with them I got bookings at Future Dance and Labyrinth respectively this lasted for a few years until I decided it was time for another change.
I had a go at co-promoting an event called Strictly Hardcore. To do this type of thing regularly takes some serious money and dedication thou, so a few times was enough for me. Instead I had a go at making a few tunes in the studio. I met up with DJ Impact from nu-nrg.
All the tracks I made were on FBI Recordings but unfortunately were never released onto vinyl, then as fate would have it I bumped into DJ Triptech again, after losing contact with him for a few years and he told me of an internet station he was starting up called newtechpirates.
On newtechpirates i had my own show with my crazy friend Lottie!!!! But what i enjoyed most of all about being on newtechpirates, was arranging the guest shows. We had many different guests on there including Suzy Solar, Slipmatt and Vicky Devine after doing the guest shows for a few years i tried doing a few of my own parties again called Beats and Breaks, but with me working all the time it was hard to commit to such a big project, so i tried a few other things like podcasts.
I eventually started another night up called functionality, but again work commitments got in the way.The following are what i remember, apologies to those i forgot, but to be fair i have been going for 15 years more or less now, lol
