HarderFaster DJs >> Shif
Music Style:The style I play is increasingly referred to as 'Hard-Dance' - meaning a fusion of Hard House and Hard Trance.
Residencies:Logic, The Gathering, Nova, Bangin'Tunes Presents @ 414, and of course my own night Oblivion.
Management Agency:I take most of my own bookings but also have recently been signed to the Dirty Dj's Agency.
No. of records:I own near to 5000 records covering genres such as funk, hip-hop, deep/funky/tech house, trance, breakbeat, jungle/drum&bass, techno, hardcore.
Started playing:I started playing seriously in 1999 before I got my first pair of decks.
All time top 3 tunes:Difficult to narrow it down to three but they've got to be:
Acen - Trip to the moon
4 Hero - Close your eyes
Origin Unknown - Valley of the Shadows
Signed to:Recently been signed to the Fevah Trance Label with remix work on the way.
Worst DJing moment:There's been a few disastrous moments - Usually when things go wrong with the sound system. Most recently on Boxing Day 2002 when the headphone socket had caved into the inside of the mixer meaning it was imposible to cue tunes. Any Dj will know mixing without headphones is like driving blindfolded.
Would most like to play:Always dreamt of playing at massive outdoor festivals/beachparties to crowds of 10,000 +
Most enjoyable set you've played:My most enjoyable set so far has to be my first gig at The Fridge for Logic 2002. I got to play generator as the last tune of the night and that was a dream come true.
Favourite Promotion:Logic and Fevah because of the way they both work very hard to please the clubbers and have all stemed from the underground. Big up to Nadia, Dave, Eamonn, Arron and Wayne.
Favourite Label:Too many labels to name. Consistency is always a major factor when I'm record shopping and Labels such as Fevah, Bulletproof and Sectioned are usually safe bets.
Biggest Influence:Escape From Samsara and all their resident Djs including Rubec and Thermobee influenced me in my music tastes along with having 'DJ' friends that play very different styles.
Drink:Rum, Lager, Coke and of course water.
Non-music pastime:erm...reading?, swimming?, drinking...
Words of wisdom:It's an old one but I always believe if you treat people how you would like to be treated it pays off.
Other Comments:Massive ammounts of thanx and love to Nadia and Dave Logic who have helped and supported me so much over the past 2 years. This year's gonna be a big one for Mr De Bass so keep your eyes and ears peeled. Peace & Respect to all.
