What made you want to DJ? School days really. Half of my school wanted to be a DJ!  I got a lot of inspiration from mixtapes & pirate radio shows at that time. One mixtape in particular that I always tried to replicate back then was Underground Frequencies Vol. 1 by Tuff Jam.

What was the first track you bought specifically to DJ with? I’m pretty sure it was Scott Garcia “It’s A London Thing” on 12” & I bought it from a Virgin records store around 1997 for a very reasonable £2.99 

Everybody wants to be a DJ these days. What ignites your passion to continue, despite the competitiveness within club culture?  I love the club culture, and of course the music, but I see myself as a raver not a DJ. I mix in my spare time for my own pleasure, and as long as there’s good music around, I will never give it up.

If you could go back in time and be involved in the club scene of any era, when would this be and why? 1993-1996 for London’s Sunday Scene. I only just missed out on this era, but without a doubt the music I play today is heavily influenced by it.

Who would be your dream guest on your show? Andre 3000… Man is a genius! 

If you could go B2B with any DJ on the planet, who would it be and where? I’d go B2B with Kerri Chandler in a packed out & down right sweaty Gass Club, London.

If you could have made any of the the records you have played which one would it be and why? Hardrive – Deep Inside. It’s so simple yet just never fails for me. Absolute anthem.

What’s your musical guilty pleasure? – Don’t be shy 😉 Not that recent but Justin Timberlake – Take Back The Night… Big Tune!!!

If you could only listen to the same 5 records for the rest of your life, what would they be? It’s so bad that there’s no house tracks in there but these tracks never fail to make me smile!!

Massive Attack – Unfinished Sympathy

Al Green – Let’s Stay Together

Freeez – Southern Freeze

OutKast – Spottieottiedopalicious

Earth, Wind & Fire – Fantasy

Get up or Get Down? I Gets Down!

Too Hot or Too Cold? Too cold!

Piano or Bassline? Piano

Yoda or Gandalf? Huh?
