As DJ Essential, I've been a DJ since '94. Spinning everything from Rare Groove, Acid Jazz, Downtempo, Jungle/ Drum & Bass, to UK Garage, Soulful & Deep House, Broken Beat, Dubstep, now UK Funky & Tropical/Bass.. I'm influenced by House DJ's ( Larry Levan, Ron Hardy, Louie Vega, Larry Heard, Carl Craig, & Karizma ) with their versitality & mixing. I like to let the music speak for itself while taking the listener on a journey, but by mixing it as tight as possible. In 2000, I started making music as Vital Sines.
