Appeared on the same line-up as just about EVERY recognisable hard dance DJ.

Element 7 DJ Agency (www.element-7.com) assist me in the South. Zero 300 Productions take care of all my bookings in Scotland. Predominantly though, I remain self-managed – as I have been for just under the last 4 years!

Marketing Consultant working within the dance music industry – for example, press releases have been constructed for the likes of Frantic, World DJ Fund and so forth.

Debut production - engineered by Paul Maddox – ‘New York, New York’ release on to Tidy Trax. The track was on albums such as ‘Insomnia 3’ and featured on Mixmag’s cover CD in February 2003. Reached Bangingtunes.com ‘Top Selling Track’ position BEFORE it’s release! MTV Dance constantly featured the track. New track ‘Detour’ also signed to Tidy Trax and already appeared on the Anne Savage’s ‘Music For The Harder Generation’ compilation. New track ‘Some Justice’ (described as another off the wall production like ‘New York, New York’) also completed and signed to Tidy’s new ‘Synapse’ label.

Mixmag ‘Tip For The Top’ feature, November 2002, Energy UK DJ of the Month, April 2000, Third placed in the category for ‘Best Up and Coming DJ’ in the 2001 and 2002 4clubbers End Of Year Survey etc.

Co-promoter and weekly resident of ‘Sessions’ – a new Wednesday night formed by the massive Goodgreef organisation. This was as a result of my massive input and popularity at ‘Base’, where I built up and held my position for 2 years.

• Appeared at the huge ‘Mainframe Outdoor’ festival in June 2002. Also appeared at the Tidy Weekender in 2002 (and re-booked to play again in April, 2003 and again in October, 2003).

For example, an appearances at many Insomniacz events, appearances for Tidy Trax (at places like Tidy London), an appearance at ‘Storm’, substantial appearances for Frantic (Hard House Academy, Convergence, Frantic etc). The list goes on. I now play for Frantic every couple of weeks.

Other residencies reflect versatility. For example, Kemistry in Leeds can feature a funkier buildup or driving and euphoric material; whereas Milk in London (where I am termed a ‘floating resident’ can focus much more upon underground techno, hard nu-NRG and hard trance. I also hold residencies across the UK : ‘Sessions’ (Leeds); Exstatic (Wakefield); Goodgreef (Manchester, Wakefield, Yarm).
