Which big name DJs’ style do you most reflect?
I like various but like to think I bring my own style and energy to the DJ booth.
Do you remember your first ever gig?
My local pub when a DJ didn’t turn up.
Tell us about your all-time favourite artists.
Michael Jackson, Fleetwood Mac, Fatboy Slim, The Who, ELO and more.
What has been your most ridiculous DJ request to date?
Travelled across Ukriane for 8 hours, to be welcomed by… you can play and we can’t pay you or you go back to the hotel and we will pay you €100. you can guess what I chose ;-/
How do you think DJ technology will change into the future?
It’ll all be in the cloud, which is a shame.
What was your worst gig and why?
See the ridiculous DJ request and one NYE when I was booked but the sound system had a limiter on, it was packed and no one could hear the music and they wanted Hip Hop, I don’t play Hip Hop.
What was your best ever gig and why?
Space Ibiza was good, but played a gig in Kazakhstan to 10k people, also on a beach in Chania was very cool. I’ve been lucky and played some very cool gigs.
Do any ‘star’ DJs get on your nerves?
Yes but no comment.
What one useful tip would you give to the layman looking to book a DJ for their event?
Book the DJ for his music not how many people he can bring to a party. If the music is good the people will come and stay. I quote wayne’s world “Build it and they will come”. 😉
