St Albans, United Kingdom
It kicked off for me in the mid-eighties, when Hip-Hop and Electro first began to get airtime on Mike Allen's Capital show. I was hooked. Then the Rave scene broke with hectic weekends spent following convoys and dancing ‘til dawn.
I dabbled with DJ’ing at the time, playing house parties and small events. My first direct involvement with the club scene came with Decompression, a Hertfordshire based Techno club during the mid 90’s, where I got involved on the security side of things (I was an avid martial artist) and designing and running live video and computer graphics sequences in the chill-out rooms.
When Decompression finally disbanded I joined Kid Ballistics in creating Portable Deluxe which with the addition of Skool of Thought (then Phat Lace Lloyd) became Breakbeat Carnage one of the first Breakbeat club nights in the UK. These days i'm a regular at Housebound and Rapture playing everything from D'n'B and House through to Jazz, Ghetto Funk and Hip-Hop
