When DJing his music spans a wide array of quality Black dance music: From deepest Disco, to 80's boogie and cutting edge house music, as well as some super special re-edits all put together with a focus firmly on the dancers. Keep on!


“  This guy has been DJing for 20 years and this set epitomized his honed skills 10 times over.
His vibe is disco, straight up discotheque, and it was mixed superbly.
There was not one soul left on the dance floor not furiously dancing to save their lives.  ”
