Hi there – Im 46 years old and grew up in London . In my early years I was heavily in to rap & was fascinated watching DJs mix and scratch on a pair of turntables .When i was 15 i saved up just enough money from my paper round and went up to Tottenham court road in London where i slapped down a deposit for a pair of Technics 1200 turntables and a gemini mixer . I learned quickly- putting on parties and club nights and won the BMA ( Black Music Association ) DJ competition when i was 17. Then along came house music and the warehouse party scene . Whilst organising & travelling to Rave parties across the south east of england , my friends and myself set up a pirate radio station Wizdom 101.8 fm . This was great fun until our eventual demise at the hands of the DTI resulting in a hefty fine and community service.
I left London for Paris in 1997 and until the birth of my first daughter in 2006 i carried on Djing in clubs and bars around Paris. I now live just outside Paris with my beautiful partner , two lovely children and our little dog.
