I am an exiled Mancunium in North Devon having moved here almost 5 years ago bringing with me my big vinyl collection and memories of big nights out at the Hacienda and all night raves at secret locations as well as a dodgy haircut and attitude!! I decided to teach myself how to mix during lockdown to maintain my sanity with guidance and tips from a DJ mate back home and he has now given me his seal of approval to let the wider world have a listen. My records are a mix of big beats, breaks, banging funk and some old school classics thrown in for good measure. All of my records are vinyl as I think it’s the original and best genre and also because at my age, I can’t be bothered getting to grips with any more technologically advanced. There is an old school flavour to my style and whilst I cannot guarantee perfection, I can guarantee that you will be up and shaking your thing and getting lost in the beaty goodness of it all. Like the vinyl I play, I may be somewhat advanced in years but I grew up a golden era of music which is definitely relevant today and certainly not defunkt! .
