I have been playing records to people since 1989, when I was a student in Newport, South Wales.
Since then, I have played in many different contexts and settings, including warm-up for bands, dancefloors, radio shows and back rooms at raves. I was resident DJ at Exeter Phoenix Arts Centre for a few years, but often away touring with a theatre company at the same time, so I set up the Jazz Wolves – a collective of like-minded DJs who could adapt to different situations.
When my children were very young, DJing took a backseat to family life, and while I was living in Cardiff, I took a break from buying and playing records, but since moving to Oulu, I have begun to play again, searching for old 45s and setting up Oulu Soul Club.
In Autumn 2020 you could find me running the Morning Rave sessions in TaikaBox Studio, mixing all kinds of records into 45-minute jump-around parties every weekday morning.
