dj ing at 19 playing the music that I love, from house parties and
pubs in East London to clubs and festivals in St Lucia and Switzerland,
still doing it 18 years on and still enjoying it.
Earliest influences at the time of my venturing out into the dj world
were the likes of Norman Jay (disco) Jazzy B (funk) Trevor Nelson
(soul) Lloyd Brown (two step soul/rare groove) Steve Wren (rnb &
and Gary Dennis (for inspiration)
Unfortunately many of the clubs associated with the new and old Caister
never saw me at their doors, mainly because at the time it wasn't
my scene - I was and will always be a Shake and Fingerpop/Family Funktion,
Soul II soul and Madhatters enthusiast - so instead of heading to
deepest Kent for a night out, I would head west and find myself in
Grove, Bush and City or other salubrious places in West London for
my fix of Good Times.
Caister scene is still new to me and I am glad I am, relatively
speaking, still a virgin, because if I was around then I would be
burnt out by now or in rehab!
asked question? 'Why do you always look so serious?'
- 'cos I'm working and I take my djing serious!'
asked question? 'Fancy a shag?'Answer - no thanks I've already eaten!
