About Me

In 1984, at age 8, I heard a Ragga tape called Baggariddim. By age 9 I knew all the words by heart and began writing my own versions, rhyming along with the MCs on the tape. I was inspired by the way the MCs didn’t just rhyme to the music the way American rappers did, they executed it with a rolling, musical, rhythmic sound that was almost hypnotizing. Their voices moved with the music the way your body moves when you dance to it. At the time all my friends were break dancers, so I would stand next to the boom box and MC to the beats while they dropped and popped. 

My MCing took a big step in 1990 when I performed at the Coca-Cola Megadance parties with the Hip Hop crew Tactical Response. I continued with them for 3 years performing at 4 Megadance gigs, Aus-American Funk Festival, Too Phat, Dance Week 93 and other smaller gigs.  

In 1997 I stepped on the microphone at Gravity Nightclub to give Rave MCing a go. Since then it has been all go for me with residencies and appearances over the years from club residencies, Raves and International gigs.  

Although primarily a Drum & Bass MC, I have MC’d to everything from Happy Hardcore to Hard house. I have performed alongside some of the worlds best DJ’s including Kenny Ken, Slipmatt, Hixxy, Grooverider, Ratty and many more.

I have performed in Hong Kong for the Dieselboy Asia Tour 2001 and returned for DJ Teebee in July the same year. In June 2001 I was signed to Raggabone Productions and concluded my contract in September 2002 to take a residency with ATM Oceanic Magazine's All Stars.

My Equipment...


Microphone

I use an AKG WMS-40 UHF Radio Microphone & Receiver. Great quality and very affordable (for a radio mic that is). I chose it because the transmitter will operate for more than 35 hours off a single set of two AA size batteries. I also like it because it is not round, it is shaped for the human hand and fits nicely in mine. In addition, the handheld transmitter uses a DC/DC converter to stabilize the supply voltage so system performance will remain unchanged throughout the entire battery life. The mic operates on a single, fixed frequency between 710 MHz and 865 MHz.


Fuel

 

For fuel I use Guinness or Beer if none of the dark stuff is available. The rigorous duties of an MC require a good supply of Carbohydrates throughout the night and alcohol sorts out that problem no worries at all.
