Please tell our readers who you are and what you do?


From the moment I heard house music for the very first time, I knew it was in my blood.
I am a music fan, a music collector, a music connoisseur.
DJ'ing has been a HUGE part of my life & ive been fortunate enough to play in many clubs & bars, not just around the UK (Ministry of Sound, Gatecrasher, Custard Factory) but around the world (Ibiza, Miami, Paris).
There's no better feeling than seeing a crowd react when your DJ set & music selection touches their mind, body & soul.
And I've never tried to just emulate other DJ's, although several have significantly influenced my career.
I've never been afraid to try something new or different.
Today I thoroughly enjoy playing my house sets just as much as ever, aswell as a retro set, whether it's classic Disco & Salsoul or even Northern Soul & Motown.
Quite simply, I love music – and the ability to DJ is my way of sharing with like minded people the wonders of dance music.


How would you describe your influences and how have they changed over the years?


I have never tried to copy any of the DJ’s that I have been fortunate to work with. DJ’ing is all about developing your own style, but what I have done is collected a wealth of knowledge from watching & listening to other DJ’s at work. Music wise, I have always been influenced by some fantastic house music labels such as Hed Kandi, Defected, Strictly Rhythm, MN2S, Fierce Angels, Toolroom, Azuli & CR2.
Some of these appearances have been alongside established DJ’s such as
• Seamus Haji (Big Love)
• Mark Doyle (Fierce Angel/Hed Kandi)
• Dan Smith (Danism/Defected)
• Michael Gray (Full Intention)
• Sonny Wharton (Toolroom)
• Jim ‘Shaft’ Ryan (Miss Moneypenny’s)
• Jeff Jefferson (Miss Moneypenny’s)
• Tom Heron (Café Mambo)
• Miss Divine (Cream)
• Claire Spooner (Pacha/Him_Self_Her)
• Andy Nicholls (Love Shy)
• Rid Welson (Naughty But Nice)
• Dave Pearce (Dance Anthems)
• And the late, great Tony De Vit (Trade).


What´s new right now?


Currently I run a brand called Mixed With Love, where I play disco, dance, club classics & house tracks from the 70's, 80's, 90's & 00'. I record & release a monthly mix, plus I host a Mixed With Love event on a monthly basis in a Midlands venue.
In addition, I always try to record relevant DJ mixes – such as soulful/funky house, tech house & label tribute mixes.
