Yorkshire, United Kingdom
I DJ for my living (strictly vinyl) and necessarily am a pretty serious collector. I’m best known for reasonably eclectic dance floor friendly sets covering all bases from Funk, Soul & Jazz, through Reggae into Hip Hop and beyond.
For many years I ran a number of successful club nights at Edinburgh’s legendary Bongo Club; notably my funk club, “Give It Some!”, the Scottish arm of Soul Jazz Record’s “100% Dynamite!” and “Solid Steel” on behalf of Ninja Tune. 9 years in Edinburgh was enough so I moved to London in 2006 before returning home to Yorkshire in 2009 following the birth of my daughter.
I used to DJ under the moniker DJRed6, but these days just go by my real name. You can find me playing records in London, Edinburgh, Leeds, Manchester, York & beyond; check www.giveitsome.co.uk for a full biog / gig listings, etc.
