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 founded in 1985 by my school friends Nick Raphael (better known as Nick Manasseh), Bill Tuckey and Ed Maiden. Over the years, Manasseh 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, Little Roy, Linton Kwesi Johnson, Burning Spear, Sugar Minott and U-Roy.
