Melksham, United Kingdom
I have been performing across the country for the past 15 years, playing a variety of styles including hardcore, happy hardcore, old skool, hard house and bounce.
It all started in the mid 90's, when a group of friends and I hosted a pirate radio station, which was broadcast across my hometown of Torquay in Devon. At the age of just 13, I was very much into hardcore and hard house. It was only in my late teens that I was able to buy a set of decks and teach myself to mix whilst at university, studying to be a teacher. A year later, I gained my first hard house booking in Bristol and a residency with the Future Sound Crew in Devon. Following this, I won numerous DJ competitions in the Bristol area and received a weekly residency at the legendary Castros nightclub. In 2004, hardcore bounced back onto the scene, and I set up the event Totally 'Ardcore. This gave me the opportunity to play all the hardcore vinyl I had collected over the previous years and immerse myself into the hardcore scene! I soon became known as a DJ, for my unique style of mixing and bouncy energetic sets.
As well as DJing and promoting my Totally 'Ardcore event, I am also producing my own music too and have my very own label ‘Totally 'Ardcore Records’. Many of my tracks have reached the number 1 spot on Track it Down and have featured on various compilations. I have had airplay on Radio 1 by Kutski and reviews in DJ Mag and Raving Eye.
When working as a full time primary school teacher, I try to incorporate my music into the workplace where I can. I teach children to mix and produce in my very own DJ club, and this has led to many live PA’s within whole school assemblies!
