I am a proud son of the twin-island republic of Trinidad & Tobago, the home of Calypso, Kaiso & Soca music, the birthplace of steelpan and the greatest show on earth “Trinidad & Tobago Carnival”.
My musical journey is begun at an early age, when I joined 96.1 WE FM (one of T&T’s biggest radio stations) as part of the Studio Guyz Movement. My family would challenge that my passion for music began much earlier when at the tender age of two, I was photographed ‘vibesing’ in front of a stereo, wearing headphones and holding a mic. Wherever it began one thing is clear, for those who know me and work with me can tell I am passionate about my craft.

DJ Scribble for his unique scratching style, Mighty Crown for their creative dub plates, Timberland for his countless hits in the early 2000s, Super Cat the original don dada, David Rudder one of the most successful calypsonians of all time and Machel Montano for his prowess and longevity in the industry.
Music has diversified so much I find myself interested in and therefore listening to most genres; Dance, Pop, Progressive House, Hip Hop, Chutney, Dancehall, Reggae, EDM… everything!
Vibes! I like to connect with the crowd. I use my unique style and energy to take the party through its gears… levels! I always aim to engage the attention of the crowd, think outside the box and switch things up with one of my trademark remixes; being creative and letting my talent guide the dancing feet!
Highlight of my DJ career…
So many to choose from but it must be presenting my own event “Soca Addict” to the London scene! I hosted my very own Drinks Inclusive rooftop party at one of the world’s iconic sporting arenas, the Kennington Oval Cricket Ground… huge! DJing to the crowd that came out for you, the headliner, the brand, the event, the music is testament of my humbling success to date.
