What motivated you to start DJing/presenting?

I began djing when I was sixteen years old. I remember listening to my brother’s old rave tapes. Before long I stopped focusing so much on the tunes themselves and honed in on the mixing instead. I soon managed to get hold of a pair of soundlab DLP turntables and the rest is history.

What styles do you play?

I play trance (old and new), various styles of house music and also a bit of hard dance.

Do you mix or scratch or both? Or are you more of a presenter?

I’m a mixer not a scratcher!

Do you play on just one of danceradiouk.com’s stations or both?

Just the one, Dance UK

Outside of danceradiouk.com, who are your favourite DJ’s, bands or music artists and how have they influenced your style (if they have)?

My favourite DJs are Paul Van Dyke, Ferry Corsten, Matt Darey and Deadmau5. I have my own style and I try to keep it that way.

What other interests do you have besides DJing/presenting on the radio?

I enjoy watching MMA and boxing fights. I also love a good film. I enjoy spending my spare time with my family and eating out.

Favourite things?

Music, playing in clubs, my family and managing to get a rare night out!

Sum yourself up in a sentence?

A DJ with a unique style, appreciative of the ‘golden 90s era’ but also a lover of contemporary sounds too.

Your desert island discs?

Beachball – Nailin and Kane, Out of the Blue – System F, Heaven’s Earth – Matt Darey

Anything else?

I hope everyone who tunes in enjoys my style. I hope to play different styles every week, so hoping there’s something for everyone!
