DJ-K (Producer, Dance, Club & Party DJ & MC Host)
Commercial Dance, Club and Party DJ (DJ Producer)
Born in Yorkshire in 1971, I grew up in the there until my parents after many years of going on holiday to Cornwall, they decided to move there. I started to learn piano an guitar, piano pridominantly taking over, however left music for a while growing up in the surf scene and later became a beach lifeguard also working as a poolguard at Waterworld in Newquay (Cornwall). Always surrounded by festivals and clubs still loving music but not involving myself musically.
After some years in 1994, I decided it was time to see a bit of Europe, so I went to Spain for 4 months… and then found myself living there for around 6 years. Always loving the music and party, frequenting the clubs and other live music venues and became interested the playing the harmonica, having spent time with a good friend who used to play the harmonica with some of the blues rock bands.
Now returning to the UK in 2000, married to a Spanish girl and 2 sons, I was playing the harmonica professionally and joined a jam night on Sundays at what was then called La Mesa playing harmonicas with Paul McNulty and Ian Watts. This slowly grew into gigs, then and open mic night in the Bridge on wool in Wadebridge, Cornwall. Lots of great things have come from this, including some years down the line in 2008 the formation of Alive Music Studios and in deep involvement in the Southwest music business.
Due to an open mic night I ended up learning the drums, mentored and tutored by Stuart Philp the original drummer of the Sundogs. Then met Austin Gardener and Becky Spriggs and we formed the then popular Southwest trio called MOJO. After 3yrs with the band we all started to drift into other areas of music, one of which myself entered into the DJ scene, hosting the popular event CLUBNITE, held at Carters Pub in Polzeath Cornwall for around 2 years, during which I played out doing other private parties, weddings and birthdays. I having been DJing since 2008 and started getting involved with other events like HARD ENERGY and other music events connected with ALIVE MUSIC.
I continue to involve myself and evolve in my DJing techniques playing all styles music from DnB, RnB, Chart, Dance, Pop, Dirty Dutch House etc. I am currently loving my (Dirty) Dutch House. I am a studio/DJ producer and sound engineer with ALIVE MUSIC, Wadebridge, Cornwall and love every bit of music helping others in their musical ways and providing opportunity for those who would not normally be given a chance to demonstrate their talent in music. I work with an amazing team, Adam Leslie, Paul McNulty, Craig Hardie (aka Spot), Eva, Helen Whithread & Rob Brindle, plus all the recording artists and clients we work with and TOGETHER we are ALIVE MUSIC !!
