‘The Viceroy’ is a rapidly rising star in clubland. Picked by London€™s number 1 club night The Gallery as part of their 2006 Nu Breed along with Sander Van Doorn, John Askew and Gavyn Mytchel, ‘The Viceroy’ has already enjoyed huge success and is still only 20 years old.

Resident at The Gallery for Vaccine, ‘The Viceroy’ helped steer the night from its Thursday night slot to hosting a room at The Gallery and is seen playing monthly and booking the best new talent and UK debuts from the likes of Ronald van Gelderen, Cosmic Gate, Yves De Reuyter, Marcel Woods, Kyau vs Albert, Simon Patterson, Jon O Bir, Ernesto vs Bastian, Martin Roth, Kuffdam and Plant Live, Fred Baker, Alex MORPH and many more.

‘The Viceroy’ has also represented The Gallery at several of its out of town events including its night at The Honey Club in Brighton and at The Mission in Leeds as well as replacing any last minute cancellations for The Gallery in the main room at Turnmills in London, most recently playing after Mauro Picotto and Eddie Halliwell.

He is also seen Djing regularly at events and club nights across the UK and beyond. Highlights have included a tour of Russia and the Ukraine in 2004, The Escape into the Park Launch party in 2005 and NYE 2005 at Brixton Academy.

Not just a successful DJ, 2006 has seen ‘The Viceroy’ hit the studio with a series of collaborations and solo records. Early 2006 saw ‘The Viceroy’ vs Karl G ‘ Perception receive massive support from, amongst others, the world number 1 DJ Paul van Dyk and was given a remix by Kuffdam and Plant for release on Vaccine Digital.

‘The Viceroy’ and Ehren Stowers ‘ Way of Life was snapped up by Monster Tunes after only one play to the label boss for a full vinyl release in Autumn 2006 and ‘The Viceroy’ has just finished his first solo track End Game which has already attracted several labels.
