I started DJing in 1984, joining Brighton’s King Tafari Love sound system and beginning my radio career at Sussex University's Radio Falmer in 1985. In 1989 I joined Manasseh, a London-based sound system which featured regularly at Notting Hill Carnival, and played many big dances including sound clashes with Jah Shaka, Fatman, Jah Warrior, Volcano, Aba Shanti I, Jah Observer and Jah Tubbys.
I regularly presented Manasseh's Kiss FM radio show, a reggae institution which occupied the late night Saturday night/Sunday morning slot for 12 years from 1987 until 1999, and have been lucky enough to DJ as support act for Dennis Brown, Frankie Paul, Ziggy Marley, Linton Kwesi Johnson, Burning Spear, Little Roy, Sugar Minott, Dennis Bovell, Earl Sixteen, Macka B, The Twinkle Brothers, U-Roy, Aswad, Lee Perry, Horace Andy and David Rodigan.
