Home/Tag: House Music

House music, is a style of electronic dance music that was established by dance club DJs in Chicago that were influenced by mid-1970s dance music as played by DJs in New York, and spread to Detroit, New York, and eventually Europe. House music is strongly influenced by fundamentals of the early to mid 1970s soul- and funk-infused dance music chic of disco. House music takes disco’s use of a prominent bass drum on every beat and created a new style by mixing in a heavy electronic synthesizer bassline, electronic drums, electronic effects, funk and pop samples, and reverb- or delay-enhanced vocals.

House Culture

House Culture was started by two friends who first met on a dance floor in Shoreditch as strangers in 2012, and kept bumping into each other at different events across London over the next few years, House Culture is a platform that aims to showcase the music and culture that brought these two friends and so many other people across the world together - House Music Culture. They came and saw me play at Pikes last year when the

40th Where’s your head at – 90’s House Music Party

90's House Music Party - 40th Where's your head at. This is the last gig I did before lockdown, it was a charity 40th raising money for Mind the mental health charity.

Anyway, the night went really well and was a whole lot of fun as "Thank you

Cotswolds wedding

Cotswolds wedding - Cripps Barn was the venue for this wedding in the Cotswolds and what a wedding it turned out to be. I was joined by Andre on Sax who had flown in from Marbella that afternoon, we worked really well together and that helped make the party go with a swing. The venue (Cripps Barn) is one of the best I have played in.... Great Sound system, staff, food and its the right size too.  

Pikes Ibiza – Freddie Rocks Party

Back for it’s 9th summer, we see Freddie Rocks at Pikes as an annual party that truly puts the ‘fun’ in fundraising, as international and local DJs, Ibiza residents, holidaymakers and the entire Pikes family all come together to make a contribution to the foundation while honouring our late great hero in a way we believe would have made him break into that signature grin. If you didn’t already know, Pikes was the place where Freddie Mercury celebrated his wild and wonderful

London Rooftop Party for Fabric owner

London Rooftop Party - When the owner of Fabric asks you to do a private party, you know you are going to measured against the best in the industry, so the pressure is on. When you get feedback such from the client saying "Thanks for making it a cracking party, music was spot on, loads of neighbours round the area loved the tunes" and then from other attendees "Everyone loved the music" and "Amazing DJ" you know its gone well......

Bali and Lombok

I got to play at several venues in Lombok and the Bali islands Gili Air recently. This was quite an experience and one that will stay with me forever. The people were amazing and despite the recent earthquake always had smiles on their faces. The gigs were all chilled sunset affairs and here is an example of the sort of thing I played. Stir It Up Bob Marley Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This) Natty Bong Personal Jesus

Ibiza 2019 opening parties

Ibiza 2019 - I like to keep up to date with what is going on in the music and party scene and one of the best ways is get to the exclusive opening parties on Ibiza. Going over early May before the bigger clubs open and all the tourists arrive is a cost effective way of achieving this, Easyjet flights are inexpensive and hotels have deals so its win win. Blue Marlin was full of clubbers rather than the normal

Mum had arranged a surprise 18th birthday for her son and said according to his "mates" his fav artists where Post Malone, Eminen, The Weekend (Who I DJ'd with a few months back) and Two Door Cinema Club.

I next play at Putney Pies on Friday 28th Feb 2020 The Vault is the under-belly of Putney Pies in London.

With Club DJ's such as Seb Fontaines, Gary of Hoxton Whores fame, Lisa Loud, Guy Williams ( Pikes resident ), Howard Hill and Jon
