Colin is a highly experienced professional club dj with over 30 years of residences in the Uk and Ibiza.
His style of playing is very much a main room energetic mix of House, Commercial, Urban and Student anthems, using loops and vocals to make an impact to his sets and have always been strongly influenced from the House scene since it all started in 1985. Ranging from Deep House through to Tech and Drum and bass to Indie, Colin lives and breathes music.
Music has always been his main interest even at the young age of 10 where he was always playing his parents old vinyl collection and thinking how cool it would be to doing discos after being amazed at his local school discos. This love of Djing and entertaining people got put into practice when Colin got to high school and became their regular mobile disco for all the schools events.
At the age of 16 Colin entered a nation competition and after fighting my way though the heats I managed to win the “Young dj of the year ‘86”.This was a huge turning point for him because it gave him a big step in promoting himself into clubs when he became 18 years old.
After doing mobile discos for over 12 years while also playing at clubs Colin decided to stop presenting mobile discos and to focus on just club work.
He successfully held loads of residences over the next years all over the Uk and got himself a great reputation on the dance circuit.
Since then Colin has been strongly got involved with Gatecrasher and other large chain companies in the Uk and Hedkandi in Ibiza in 2004.
Colin currently plays at is ‘Stupid Tuesday” at Players in Birmingham which is run by Vodbull, the UKs biggest student event company based in the Midlands. These events are huge and regularly play in front of over 1000 screaming students. Colin has been their resident for over 7 years.
As well as playing for Gatecrasher, Colin also plays at Warwick University’s “POP” event in front of 1400 every Wednesday in term time which is a very rewarding gig.
Not only Colin is also a very experienced Tutor but, is one of the original founder members of DJ Academy so you know you’re in good hands.
