JT / DJ
DJ with almost 40 years experience!!
JT loves playing a wide variety of musical genres, namely Soulful House, Old Skool House, Deep House, Soul, RnB and Hip Hop, and has gone from using Vinyl to CD’s to Digital, and still uses all three today.
JT started buying vinyl back in 1984 and purchased his first turntables, ‘Technics 1210’s’ at Christmas ’85. His influences came from the London Pirate Radio Stations – ‘LWR’, ‘Sunrise’ and ‘Kiss’ . It was also around this time that he purchased an FM Transmitter from Tandy Electronics and started broadcasting to his Estate in Bow, London and knew when people had tuned in when they answered his call over the radio by flashing their house lights (long before pagers and mobile phones!!).
He played his first gig – a 21st Birthday party, and loved it – so did the crowd. He got a few more bookings from that gig, with his very first actual ‘paying’ gig in 1988, aged at just 19 (Bottles of Holsten Pills don’t pay the bills). He and his DJ Partner, Matt began playing out every weekend. It was in 1989 that JT & Matt started playing in Foxys club in Amhurst Rd, London. Not long after Foxys, JT & Matt started on Fantasy FM; with JT playing 8-10pm four nights a week & on Fridays was joined by Matt when they played midnight-8am, after they’d finished DJ’ing in a local Pub at 11pm.
To earn a little extra cash and gain valuable experience, JT and Matt created ‘Infinity Mobile Disco’ and were very busy doing this plus the Pubs, Clubs and Radio all around East London. In 1990 they joined Centreforce FM, with a regular weekly slot, continuing with Infinity Disco and the local pubs and clubs every weekend. JT and Matt eventually went their separate ways and In the year 2000, JT was joined by Tracy when they became ‘Infinity discokaraoke’, which was very successful. JT handed the London Scene over to Tracy when he moved away in 2004, but carried on with ‘Infinity discokaraoke in and around Essex. He has now stopped playing out and concentrates on playing on Internet Radio and creating mixes for his Mixcloud Page
