I'v been in to mixing tunes for some years now and got in to it,due to listening to the likes of "Buss Diss" with Stu Allan on key 103 I.B.C. Radio, Sunset Radio 102 fm with the 808 state Spinmasters Andrew Barker and Darren Partington.
My first time goin out was 1990 at the midland in West Didsbury. M.V.I.T.A. Manchester Vibes In The Area M.C. Alfonso Himat Singh.
Not forgetting DJ-Mark-One -Lee Watching him Scratch and mix Hip Hop in his bedroom back in the old days too.
Then it was record shopin at > EASTERN-BLOC > Piccadilly Records >The Vinyl Exchange > Spin Inn > Manchester Undergroung Records. The rest is history.
I like > Electro / Hip Hop / Hip House / Acid House / House / Oldskool House / Break Beat / Progressive House / Trance / Tribal / Chill Out and Indie.
