  • A brief intro...
    I was introduced to the northern scene aged 16 at my first scooter rally in 1983 with ex-Wigan DJs playing at the all-nighters and have been collecting records ever since. I enjoy rare and underplayed events and am co-promoter of Feed Your Soul chillout at Newark and Creme de la Creme chillout at Annesley Woodhouse, both of which are free-to-public events.  (It's not about making money, it's about sharing the passion)
