Mobile Disco to Hire from Wakefield – Born to be a DJ
Mobile DJ Playing Records before Nursery School
I first started playing my dad’s vinyl records at the age of 3. I think I was destined to become a mobile DJ! I then got my first record player at the age of seven and started playing a lot of my dads 1960’s records and was listening to a lot of legendary artist’s such as Rolling Stones, Billy Fury, Beach Boys, Hollies, Roy Orbison, Elvis Presley and The Beatles.
At the age of 11, I started buying and building my own record collection, I started a Milk and Paper Round, most of my earnings went on collecting Vinyl. I spent many weekends going to Market Stallholders, record shops and even some car boots to build up my music collection.
When I was 15, I made my mobile DJ debut on Valentine’s Day 1992 at Kippax Clubhouse, I wasn’t even booked to play, but my passion to learn and want to be a DJ mixed with a huge record collection, gave me the opportunity to start my DJ career. I pestered to get a chance on the decks, despite never having played before. Thankfully I was like a duck to water and ended up doing the full night. I then worked there as a mobile DJ for 18 months.
I left school in 1992 and took a day job at Abbeycrest Jewellers packing Jewellery, to help me raise money to buy my own equipment. Click here to see some of my DJ equipment. I remember that every Monday lunchtime I would be late back, due to running into Leeds and back to HMV, to obtain the new releases both commercial chart music, underground dance music and student/alternative anthems.
