more guitar based music from the likes of Pink Floyd, Lynard Skynard and others. However it wasn’t until he moved to Manchester towards the

end of the millennium that he discovered his passion for DJing. Over the years he progressed to spinning soulful and funky house, with many

a club night in Manchester being on the receiving end of Brad’s trademark high energy performances including 2Risque, Sankeys Soap and

Planet K to name but a few. Ever one for trying new things, Brad soon branched out into music production and in 2004 he released his first

track, ‘Crazy’ on Ian Carey’s label, Elan Records. This release was just the first in what has now become a highly successful working

relationship with the successful American DJ/Artist, and in 2006 Brad moved out to Spain to assume the position of Label Manager for Ian’s

new label, Gfab Records. Since then, Brad has gone from strength to strength, collaborating with Ian on remixes for the likes of Thomas
