Bio: My first musical encounter was when I was about 5, I got a big red Sony Walkman with orange headphones for Christmas … WICKED. I remember taking a long trip to Newcastle in my Mom & Dads VW Caravanette and was engrossed in a free tape from a Kellogg’s Cornflakes box, the only tune I can remember is The Police’s – Walking on the moon … HEAVY. My next memory is of buying – BreakDance the Movie's Soundtrack on vinyl, which I still have today and includes Kraftwerk’s – Tour de France … RUDE.

Southport Weekender is where I was first introduced to one of my hero’s, Gilles Peterson, he was playing Roy Ayers – Running Away, with a room full of people dancing in synchronisation, I was hooked. I then started to graduate through different music genres finally resting on Deep/Jackin’ House and gained my lifelong admiration for Chicago’s, Derrick Carter, who I travel the length and breadth of the country to see at such clubs as The Bomb and The End.

As my interest in Dance music grew, so did my passion for vinyl. After a secession of parties, I got my first official DJ gig at the Sobar, where I then when onto play regularly. I then graduated to their private members bar, The Kadjo Lounge, where I mixed up MAW type house music, Disco and Classic’s.

I have my own night called Culture at Poppy Red which takes place every Friday, with various guest DJ’s. It has been running nearly a year and is very successful; we have had some excellent parties. I have also started a new underground club night with a collective of people called Jigsawmusic, check out more details www.jigsawmusic.net

I was recently a guest DJ at The legendary Medicine Bar where I played on Different Drummer’s Sound System at their Leftfoot Night alongside Adam Regan, I played the prime slot in front of four hundred people. I have also DJ’s along side Digs n Whoosh, Charles Webster, I.G Culture, Domu and soon Norman Jay @ the Medicine bar. Woody
