What motivated you to start DJing/presenting?

I have always had a passion and interest in being a DJ. Being able to express my love for trance in my own DJ sets I think is one of the main reasons why I like to do this. I enjoy mobile DJing for private events, bars etc as well as radio shows, and that’s one of the reasons why I decided to join with Dance Radio UK.

What styles do you play?

I would say all aspects of Trance, from progressive to really uplifting stuff. I like to build my sets to a full on climax, sometimes with the odd classic in there :). I sometimes dabble in House but Trance is my forte!

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

Definitely a mix DJ 🙂

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

Just on the Dance Radio UK Station

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

There are so many, I guess from the early days I really enjoyed listening to Armin, Tiesto, Matt Hardwick. Trance has changed a lot recently and some of these Trance DJ’s moving to the EDM scene but a lot have stayed true to their roots. I would say at the moment, I really enjoy listening to Solarstone, John O’Callaghan, Airwave. They have all influenced the way I play one way or another.

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

I am a family man so spending time with the wife and kids is important to me. Football of course!

Favourite things?

Chinese food :), My Pioneer controller!

Sum yourself up in a sentence?

I am hardworking, dedicated and an easy going guy 🙂

Your desert island discs?

Has to be a couple of classics…………Thrillseekers – Autumn Tactics & Gouryella – Gouryella

Anything else?

Please tune in, sit back, close your eyes and let the music take you on a journey! Thanks for listening!
