Growing up in the 70,s I used to here all my mums old records from before and during that time as I was born I 1969, Music just fascinated me in listening and thinking about how it was made, what these wonderful sounds where etc.
In the 80s I started doing the mix tapes and found a fondness for making each tunes cut of point go well with the previous song the perfect blend so to speak, I then advance onto break dancing, body popping etc and the music that came with it. in about 84 the electro music showed me the future and I liked it!!!! and thus hearing those electro albums mixed In I then new I was onto something special with what I had been doing already so I progressed to doing some complex cut and chop mixes obviously from tape deck to tape deck (Not the cut and splice method before the age of the computers with todays technology lol)

I was also introduced to soul & funk, hip hop vibes which crept amongst the electro for me listening to a guy on pirate radio called rap master Sam brown and this also progressed onto listening to mike shaft on radio and each year he would have a best of the year selection all cut and spliced (in the true sense)I was well hooked on music and djing by then.
from 1986 I started with two cheap odd decks without pitch, by 1990 I still had odd decks but they had around +3 & +5 pitch control by way of a small rotary pot, although I manages to open them up and alter the pitch from inside so I got a bit more pitch control, then at last I got my first set of technics on HP around 1992 and then I class myself as becoming a self sufficient DJ.

Although the record collecting started in the 80's with some human league and that type of stuff on 7" and my more concerning music started in 1985 when I also discovered the night clubs I was about 16-17 at this stage and I new I wanted to be a DJ /musician.
