Beat-wrangling shenanigans to make you wiggle you ass and stomp your feet......

I've been playing for over 19 years, starting with gigs at a host of London-based nights, including the inimitable Mothership, Eurobeat 2000, Radicons and many more. I have always preferred the free party scene; smaller nights run by people with genuine passion for what they do and crowds that come for the music. There's nothing quite like playing to 1,000 people - but the real magic is in those smaller, more intimate nights where people come together and create a genuine sense of community.

I moved from playing hard house and techno to playing breakbeat and ..well..more hard techno...to where I am now - a deeper, funkier, sound but still firmly in techno/tech-house. Unless I get a bit carried away of course...

More recently I've played a couple of truly awesome events under the Stereophoenix banner. Rise in London and Forcefields, a small private festival..on Elite Force's farm. More of these to come as we take Stereophoenix out into the world. And this year I am privileged to be playing a few sets at Burning Man; VERY excited about that, with the highlight being a closing set for Thumper Camp at 3 o' clock and G on the Thursday night.

There is nothing I love quite like music....put me in front of the decks - any decks, any kind, any format - and I will happily keep going until you tell me to stop..... :)
