Musical Background / History

I got involved in DnB back in 95 and started going out to venues around 96/97. My first real DnB experiences were down at events such as Ruffneck Ting, DriveBy, Apex, 24:7, and Hysteria, which got me hooked. I then got involved with the scene locally by helping with events, parties, flyer design etc and eventually found myself buying some turntables. In 2003 I decided to start writing my own tracks, which soon began to attract interest from DJ’s in the area, things kind of took off from there.


How did you get involved in GFM?

I got involved with the station in 2002 after meeting DC through work and a common interest for underground music in the City. I started doing work behind the scenes and after expressing an interest in playing on the station, I was invited to shadow Gary T on one of his shows. After experiencing a ‘live’ show from inside the GFM studio, I put forward a demo of my own and in 2003 became the presenter of ‘The Drum & Bass show’ on GFM.

Message to GFM Community

GFM isn’t just a station, it’s a movement, a way of life and its some-thing that pulls a lot of different people together. Without the support of the community GFM would never be as big as it is now.
