I made a bunch of music from a young age onwards. Was obsessed in the old days of running the tape recorder and making banging noises and stuff. I’d also play my nans old organ as a kid and make a “hell of a racket”, in her eyes! To me it was inspired. My grandad said years later that it was always tuneful.

I tried many ways of doing music but I didn’t have much equipment until I was working and bought a few bits. Was quite interested in DJing too. I always tried to make computers make music, whcih was a challenge of equipment. From Apple 2, Spectrum, Amiga, all being ropey. The PC was also fairly naff for a longtime.

I did a 31 albums, countless DJ mixes and several gigs in Norwich, London and Goa, India.

In the end I got sick of gigs and being messed about. I’ve not made any new music for sometime, that may change.

DJ

I guess in the old days and making mix tapes on the old analogue cassettes one then wanted to mix the tracks together.

I had a mess of old decks, tape and CD to make mixes and a rubbish mixer.

Then with the PC there was no looking back with software like Traktor.

I was so messed about as a live DJ. I did gigs in Norwich, London and Goa. Never got paid much and was truly shafted a few times, actually, many times. The Goa venue owners mostly stink. London isn’t much better. The biggest highlight for me was playing 7 hours straight at the Bamboo Forest in Anjuna 2014. The end was when I’d just walked into a place in Ilford, London to do a set and the “security” guy decided to fix me up. I won’t say all that happened because of him, but I just decided, “nuts to this” and I never did a gig again.
