Well it first started when i started going to Gatecrasher in Sheffield in !998/1999,it was the first proper club i’d been to and i was blown away by the music. I loved watching the dj’s and thought i’d have a go so i bought
a pair of belt drive decks and a mixer, went to HMV in Leicester, bought a few records and went from there!

Finally, why do you love playing at Habit?
I love playing Habit because its such an amazing party! Everybody there is out for a good time and it never fails to go off. Its makes a massive difference to play for a brand that does it for the love of the music not the money. The Habit boys love what they do and it reflects in the parties they put on. I’m proper honoured to be a part of the re-launch and can’t wait to get behind those decks again!
