I’ve been a DJ since December 26th 1984 when I started a mobile disco for weddings, birthday parties and the like.
I played lots of pop music including Depeche Mode and The Pet Shop Boys until discovering house music in the late 80?s.
I went to a lot of parties in fields and clubs and fell in love with dance music (and a voodoo woman named Phyllis).
I moved from the UK to Hong Kong in 1991 (which isn’t in Japan, as lots of journalists seem to think).
(I like using parenthesis).
I helped build up a crazy underground scene in HK between 1991-97 as no one was playing dance music there.
I also spent a lot of time from 1992 onwards playing at the full moon parties in Thailand as no one was playing records there either.
I moved back to the UK in 1997 and teamed up with Craig Richards and Sasha to play at the Tyrant parties in London and Nottingham.
I slept on a trolley in Craig’s studio for a while but eventually got a real bed.
I released two super Tyrant mix CDs with Craig.
I have also released four other mix CDs including two for Global Underground and one for Balance which I love.
I play many, many crazy clubs all over the world each year and usually end up DJing in someone’s living room or garden (weather permitting).
I play at festivals such as Coachella, Love Parade, Exit, Creamfields, Notting Hill Carnival and enjoy camping.
I often get asked by journalists to describe what type of music I play.
I don’t know is the answer.
I launched my 365 project in June 2005. It was really fun and unbelievably interesting.Why don’t you ask me about it.
I mostly play records but sometimes play CDs.
I don’t take my computer clubbing.
I like making records with silly titles.
I don’t ever seem to get round to releasing them though.
I can’t play the piano.
I can play the triangle.
I have been in the DJ mag poll at number 10, 27, 31, 56, 76 and 88 but still feel exactly the same.
I was number ten on Resident Advisors top 100 DJ’s in 2008 but failed to turn up in DJ mags one.
I think if you need to know any more odd little details, this interview is the one to read….. http://www.clubplanet.com/news/archive/the_dj_more_than_just_sex_drugs_and_vinyl.asp
I have lied once (or was it twice?) in this biography.
I love you.
