His music experience started as a drummer and backing vocalist in a rhythm n blues band on the London circuit in 1985.
By 1987 he had taken to the decks playing soul funk and rare groove to London crowds in clubs such as Buzbys, Maximus, Empire and other venues.
1988 was the start of the Acid House movement for him and from that point on he was hooked. The great Tony Thorpe crossed his path and became his 1st music mentor.
For the next ten years he developed his production and DJ talents. He was commissioned in 1996 to compose the VH-1 on-air indent and music for four other VH-1 shows. He produced his first album and developed the Blackliquid band.
By 2000 he took his talents to LA fully immersing himself in the house music community.

He has recently performed for Hed Kandi USA at the famed Club Mighty (SF), Ecco Hollywood (LA) & Palazzo (Vegas).
It was, however at this point in his career (2000), at a local 7Eleven he met his second mentor and friend for life Ashley Ingram (Imagination, Des’ree).
After being signed for numerous productions on various labels including the Universal Music Group and his notable remix of DJ Colette’s hit record ‘Feelin Hypnotized’ which is featured in 20th Century Fox hit movie and the Warner soundtrack ‘Devil Wears Prada’, he decided to open his digital imprint Blackliquid Music.
