In 1998, at a time when clubs seemed to insist on sticking to a single narrow genre of music, some friends and I launched launched an uncompromisingly eclectic club night one Saturday night in a deserted City of London. And when the crowd went wild as the DJ dropped Nirvana, we knew we were onto something.
Having previously flirted with DJing at university, my desire to share my passion for discovering new tunes, and reinterpreting older ones, was re-ignited. And I've been DJing ever since - mainly as 'idiotech'.
Still focusing on that juxtaposition of genres, now primarily via remixes and mash-ups, I played at various clubs and festivals (including Vegfest Bristol and The Secret Garden Party), had my mixes played on specialist radio shows, and was included in The Wall Of Sound / Xfm A-Z of DJs.
In May 2015, I officially retired as 'idiotech', but have continued to DJ at events such as London Vegan Drinks.
