The long time DJ, promoter, producer, radio show host and all round bon viveur has been playing out in Auckland’s clubs, bars and at the best underground parties for the last 10 years, securing an unfailing reputation to rock the party, in every way possible. Along the way he has earned the respect of visiting English DJs such as Terry Francis, Dick Johnson and Tom Middleton.
