Lenny Higgins


Since he first took to the turntables in the mid 90 s Lenny has constantly pushed the boundaries , always striving to develop, shape and structure his own unique style and sound . Starting with 2 turntables he soon learnt the art of beat juggling and from there started to incorporate a third turntable into his sets along with effects . 1999 saw the birth of the Fundamental events , a series of club nights hosting underground sounds each and every month , This was an outlet for Lenny to take it one step further and start to play in front of an audience as well as playing along side other fellow djs already established in the industry such as Sir real & Harvey Lane ( house of god ) Max Duley ( Arcart ) Dj Q-IC (Automatic / Drought )Ignition Technician ( Planet Rhythm records / ignition records )plus many more. Also it added a little extra insight into the industry thus for promoting , designing and networking . Fundamental ran from 1999 until 2003 which is when Lenny took up a dj / production class @ city college Manchester with Jon Da Silva .After completing the course Lenny was asked to return and help assist Jon in tutoring the students and helping them from basic beat matching and placements to beat juggling and incorporating fx while using multiple turntables / cdjs and eventually to help create them a good promotion package . Also Lenny then hosted and promoted a club night for the students , giving them all a chance to get a feel of a proper club system and environment and an idea of what is involved . Jon Da Silva quoted :: I first came across Mike higgins ( Lenny ) in 2003 whilst he was attending a dj course i was teaching for armstrong learning City College Manchester . He not only struck me as a very focused dj but also a very skillful one .His abilities on the decks and Pioneer 600 led me to subsequently ask him to come back to demonstrate these skills to other students on the course and plan some club nights with me . In these endeavours Lenny has been conscientious and committed and i am more than happy to add my voice to the praise of this Dj . while helping Jon , Lenny felt the need to push himself further so entered himself into a year long nationwide dj competition hosted by u.v.s.f events in association with h.t.f.r.records and club eden ibiza sponsered by vestax He finished the competition gaining first place in the north of England and went on to play @ Archaos Glasgow along with Phil Kieran and have himself published in dj mag . After this he went onto organise a couple of more nights in his local town Named threshold and went on to do various radio shows along side a few productions . These days he still plays the odd gigs and has upped his game to 4 decks ,, fx and on the fly samples ,, his most recent gigs was with Paul Mac , Luke Creed & Trust the Machine for Dubtek ( Leeds ) and previous to that was with Funk D Void for Music Press Amsterdam ,, you can still catch him playing radio shows also hosting his own shows / Compression Sessions hosting the very best in raw underground techno and his audio therapy casts which host a variety of sounds ranging from minimal ,, to progressive ,, tech house and techno ,,, all updates will be posted on his facebook music page facebook.com/Lenny-Higgins-273...9292887/?ref=hl
