Newcastle Upon Tyne, United Kingdom
I started DJing in 1997 under the name Sole 1 after hearing DJ Q-Berts scratches on Dr. Octagon's debut album. This lead me to learn to mix and work out how to scratch and beat juggle. After competing in over 20 DJ battles including finishing as a quarter finalist in the Northern ITF heat 2005 and and a semi finalist of the DMC UK Battle for supremacy in 2009/2010. I decided to retire from competing and rebrand in 2012 as Beast Box. This project pulls from my colorful background as a turntablist, producer, party starter, and of course music aficionado. I have supported a diverse range of acts from The Blessings (LuckyMe/RinseFM) DJ Blakey (1Xtra/DJ Hero) R.A. The Rugged Man (Rawkus Records) DJ Woody (ITF World Champion 2001) Smoove (45 Live). Previously I was an ambassador for Pro X Fade.
