I have been DJ-ing since the age of 11, when I got myself a pair of bare chassis BSR belt drive turntables and built them into a box, using a Realistic 4 channel, battery powered, mic mixer.
I have loved music since the age of 5, when I had my own radio, and turntable. I was a 2-tone rudebwoy from 1979, and a B-Boy from 1982, being in a breakdancing crew (great times). I got into House music in 1986 although I still loved HipHop (and still do), which led me to the Acid House scene, and then onto the early Rave scene.
I started streaming online in 2003, using Paltalk and TeamSpeak, and eventually set up my own station (and many others for various people too). My station was RetroTech Radio, and was one of the first live DJ Video & Audio streams. One of the DJ’s who played on RetroTech Radio, was a very good friend who I met on Paltalk, called Tonic XL, and I am very happy to say I still DJ with him, on Rave-Radio (although he is now known as Jeroen K).
I have played at various events, nightclubs, and was also a DJ for my friend Jon’s mobile Disco for around 20 years.
I am proud to have been a part of Rave-Radio for a number of years now, and will continue to love & support the station for many years to come.
I work at a Car Dealership, and am a huge Petrolhead too !
I’m married, sorry ladies (and gents!), to my lovely wife Jo.
