I began my career as English, being born in London, England. Music has always been an influence in my life from as far back as I can remember. My first record was given to me by my uncle (Double G formerly from Stylee Media) when I was about 4 years old the record was “The Muppets Song” and I would play that song every day. I joined my first reggae sound in Miami, Florida called “Genesis” and played at house parties and a few local venues around the area. Several years later, after some persuasion from the former owner of Delta Force, I joined his sound “City Star” and lived in California for 2 years. During this experience including trips to Jamaica and taking lessons from Ricky Trooper and my mentor “Tony Matterhorn” I decided I wanted to follow in the steps of King Addies (My Favorite Sound) and make City Star a clash sound.
In late 1999, while back in Miami, I was offered to be a part of Prodigy Movements as their MC and I joined Dappa, Bigga Don & Killa Mike and stayed for 10 years and learned the business on a different level. I was fortunate enough to be on the same radio station as DJ Khaled Mix 96.1 fm and Riddims 95.3 fm. Being on Prodigy Movements truly enhanced my love for being a DJ and being an entertainer. I have been fortunate enough to have played alongside every great reggae sound in the industry from Stone Love, Afrique, King Addies, Renaissance, Tony Matterhorn, King Waggy T, just to name a few.
After long deliberation, I decided take my career to its next level. This was a big decision after being a member of a sound that I loved for 10 years. I accepted an opportunity and joined “Black Chiney Sound” as a full member in March of 2009. I’ve been fortunate enough to have played in Jamaica, Belize, England, Germany, Italy, and half of the United States, and have played for crowds exceeding 3000 people.
In 2012 I expanded my talents and signed as an official DJ and A&R on an independent label in UK called “iLL Flava Records” and became the project manager for Mr. Midas a UK artist.After many years in being a DJ and in the music industry, I’m proud to say I’m still growing and have yet to reach my peak. In 2014, I look forward to taking my skills and experience to a new level, so look out for a new DJ ENGLISH FIRE in a venue near you!!
