I Started at the tender age of 13 when I got my first set of vinyl decks just to try out, by the time I was 15 I moved on to purchasing a Numark Double Jog Wheel & Stanton Turntables and at the time I thought the set up I was using was the mutts nutts!!!
Age of 16 I upped my game slightly by purchasing the Mighty Technic SLDZ 1200’s cd decks which were pretty new on the market at that period, By doing this I was set to become a better Dj with state of the art technology. Also upgraded my mixer to a Pioneer DJM500.
By coming to grips with different styles of music etc I then went for the ultimate club standard set up and the total Pioneer look and purchased 2 CDJ1000 mk 3s and the mighty DJM800!!
Whilst on the decks I then started out Producing from the odd “Donk Over” to Making my own Beats Or Making Bootlegs Under Alias’s such as; Bodyrockerz, MashUpKingz, Hypasampla, JY Project, Difinitive Audio and G45…..Gig wise, I started off doing Youth Discos at the Local Community Centre in my area on a regular basis and from that I even managed the odd slots in Archaos, only when the main door man wasn’t about as I was under age! At the age of 16 I held my first residency in Kirkintilloch in a stunning venue named Ikkon, where I played along side Joe Deacon, Junior Miami, Hesky and Big Al. Also whilst holding my residency I brought in acts QFX & Ultrasonic.
After I finished at Ikkon I held my new residency job at one of Scotlands Biggest Nights, Dimensional, where I played weekly in Club Studio (Now Known As Victorias) & Silver Nightclub. Now Dimensional is not a weekly event, I still secured a main room residency, every friday, in Victorias, Love Fridays. And Now @ Eh1, Parklife, Fantazia
