Interview by Hypnosis August 1997.
WHEN DID YOU GET INTO DJING?
Around 1988/89...I used to make up mixtape compilations of Dance and Rap/Hip Hop for my mates and then I got a spot with 6UVS-FM (the olf RTR-FM) playing wait for it...Speed & Death Metal. From there I started doing parties in 1991 with DJ In-E-Fekt, Mental, Manic and BPM...the birth of Teknology Corps. Although truly I suppose around 1983, when I used to play around with my parent's stereo and use a mic to tape my own home radio show...bit cheesy I know but you gotta start somewhere!!
WOULD YOU LIKE TO SHARE ANY DJING STUFF-UPS??
Well tha classic always being taking the needle off the wrong deck...did that in front of 2000+ people - does wonders for a red complexion!! Having my drink spiked at the first "Shag" party...and losing the plot big time looking at a spiral slipmat instead of playing tunes. The usual best way to cover up is to look at someone else...they always get the blame for it then!!!
WORST THING ABOUT BEING A DJ?
Producing music full-time, running my own label and pushing the fields of dance music to bigger and better things. Running my own 24-hour Old School/HaRdCoRe radio station...pushing Rave/HaRdCoRe into the houses of the masses!!!
Hmm I think every DJ should play to a 30,000 strong crowd once in a liftime...so a time machine and a spot at Fantazia "Castle Donington" or "Summertime" '92 cheers.
WHAT DO YOU DO IN YOUR SPARE TIME?
Once the "mafia element" was out...for bigger and better things...as long as promoters work together, and punters support the parties they always complain don't happen regularly enough!!! The scene needs to be rebuilt and this is happening slowly...support your underground, people or forever live in the shadows of commercial crap!!!
