ABOUT THE DJ
// LET'S CELEBRATE IN STYLE
I started DJing in 2007 after leaving my graduate sales job in London to pursue my dream of making large crowds of people dance. After picking up regular work around the bars and clubs of Exeter playing funk, soul and hip-hop, I gained residencies at nights in Bristol, Bournemouth and London (particularly in Shoreditch and Brixton), building a reputation for multi-genre party sets, and particularly in Electro-Swing, 20’s and 30’s swing sampled music for a more modern crowd. It is within this genre that I have gained bookings all over the UK and even abroad in Paris, Malta, Portugal and Croatia. My prominence within this scene has even seen me perform headline sets at many festivals including the legendary Boomtown and Bestival on the Isle of Wight, as well as the O2 Arena in London's docklands.
My main residency now is for The Electric Empire, a night that I have seen go from a small pub in New Cross through to The Bussey Building in Peckham and on to The Electric Brixton (formerly known as The Fridge), where I play my own brand of vintage remixed music with a cutting edge sound to packed crowds of up to 1800 people in an old theatre in the heart of southwest London, including support sets for legends such as Grandmaster Flash, Stanton Warriors and Krafty Kuts, on a regular basis. I have amassed 1.8k fans on my Soundcloud account and my mixes have been listened to and download hundreds of thousands of times all over the world, as well as being supported on some of the most prominent dance music blogs on the web.
More recently I have been playing at Wembley Stadium hospitality, supporting such legends as Fleetwood Mac, Pink, Bon Jovi and even the Spice Girls on their latest tour.
Having been to many of the weddings of my friends and family, and seeing how other DJs in the wedding disco industry performed at receptions, I created Offbeat Entertainment, with a 'start from scratch' approach to cut loose all the tired cliches and general clutter that accompanies many mobile discos and create something based on outstanding sound quality, a simple yet stunning lighting set-up, and of course everything I know about making people dance like there's no tomorrow.
Whether your wedding is to be a stunning, formal occasion, or you're looking for something a little more boutique with a funky twist, I've got everything you need to turn your wedding reception into an unforgettable full-blown party.
However you want it, no one will take your fun more seriously...
