Update. April 2015. I get a lot of messages from people telling me they only have an ipad or a computer without a cd drive or only want one track and could I please send them a free high quality digital file.... very sorry but no, I cannot.

I am English, born in Bucks, but left the UK in the mid 80's for Guernsey in the Channel Islands until 1990, when I moved to Luxembourg and also began travelling. Since 1990 I've spent 8.5 years in Thailand, 6 months in Greece, 4 months in the US, 4 months in South Africa,15 months in the Dominican Republic, 6 months in London & Brighton, Interrailed around northern Europe and ridden a motorbike from the UK to Greece and back and London to Killarny, Ireland. The rest of the time I was in Luxembourg. Career-wise, I began Dj'ing in my late teens in Guernsey and have continued this ever since. I turned professional in 1994 and also began a parallel radio presenter career, working variously for Radio WAKY, Ara City Radio and the RTL group for Radio Luxembourg. My chief passion has always been dance music (after attending the Phantasy Rave in 1988 in Guildford, I'll never forget the BBC turning up to video 10,000 teenagers high on ecstacy jumping around in a field). In the last few years I rose to the position of Managing Director/Director of production at Ara City Radio whilst also freelancing for RTL on Radio Luxembourg. At night I was also a resident of The Playground, The Elevator, The Marx, H20, Urban, and Luxury Group, played at numerous one-off events for MTV, the Luxembourg Government, the Luxembourg Dj Awards (made it to the final but came in second),played alongside Groove Armada, Roni Size, Steve Travell from Pussy 2000, DJ Marino Beradi, DJ Chook (who these days is a Drum n' Bass superstar), Dj Remy, interviewed Rob from the Stereo Mc's, Maxi Jazz from Faithless,Skunk Anansie, Eagle Eye Cherry and the Stereophonics, and warmed up for the Ministry of Sound tour in Luxembourg - sorry if I've forgotten some venues or events, those that were there will know exactly why. Since 1999, I've also started to produce a few of my own tunes in my spare time and consulted for Itunes Europe(thanks for that Miriam!). At the end of 2006, suffering from my unhealthy lifestyle, I resigned from the radio, all my residencies, rented out my flat in Luxembourg and spent a year in Thailand and the Dominican republic doing as little as possible. Now, 2 years later, I've moved to Koh Samui in Thailand where I'm running Morning Glory Beach Bungalow Resort, on Maenam beach with my business partner Hannes. I am continuing to Dj in Thailand... only on a smaller scale. However, I'm still a massive fan of electronic music, and will continue to expand my collection, but confess I'm far too lazy to make submissions to Discogs. Having said that it'd be great if someone with much more patience than me could add the last 10 years of the Cd Pool's Underground Beats and Club Beats to the discogs database - along with many other releases!! Aside from music I'm also a big fan of martial arts, kung fu movies(Jackie Chan is the greatest living human), and riding big sport bikes (I love my '09 Hayabusa).
Update May 2013. Moved to Dominican Republic, Samana Peninsula, Las Terrenas - currently resident DJ at http://republic-of-gaia.com
Cheers to all music lovers,
Update September 2016 - back to Dominican Republic for the winter season.

Nic Scarlet.

Feel good breakbeat house with some real depth and a piano in the break. Some might argue it's verging on commercial, but if that's the case it worked out great.

The original version of 'Moods' is a stone cold classic tune and an absolute must have for any fan of electronica. The later 2003 mix, which beefs up the sound with better mastering, is preferable for dj'ing on a bigger system.

Mark Knight and Funkagenda do a top job of updating Laurent Garnier's classic. Not too many copies of this card sleeve cd single around but it's a must have tune for any house fan.

Classic tune. Despite solid remixes from Cass & Slide and Soul Mekanik the full length original mix is 'the one' but is quite hard to find. It wasn't included in UK releases (at least on cd), but is available on this dutch release.

Sterling 4 disc set from Deep Dish. Of course the afterclub mixes can be bought separately for quite a lot less cash, but this longbox version remains very desirable. They rarely come up for sale at any kind of reasonable price so grab one if you can.

The words to the spoken sample at the start are nicked from Lil Louis' "Blackout" from 1988.

Oliver Lieb transfoms a very commercial and cheesy trance 'anthem' into an absolute bomb. It does sound quite dated now, but is still a top tune.

Another late 90's funky house tune. I usually rate Olav Basoski remixes from around then, but this time it's the original X-Tended mix that filled dance floors across Europe. "If your DJ is really funky, you will get all the way down!" The included ... See full review

Despite the misleading title. This CD is unmixed. Aside from that it's a pretty solid collection of darker edged Progressive House (with the exception of the awful vocal mix of Last Goodbye).

A collection of Stefano Greppi productions and remixes. It's all pretty well done, but it's a must have for his reworking of AD Finem's "Angel". An artfully, dark, Progressive take, that gives it real depth. I often mix this with the M.A.S. Vocal mix of ... See full review

This is one of my favourite Roots/Reggae albums and certainly one of Toot's very best. In the 70's he could do wrong. More or less a must-have for any Reggae fan that doesn't already own it.

Culture made unbeatably catchy tunes. I expect most Roots fans already own all these tracks, but anyone into 70's Reggae, who's somehow unfamiliar with Culture, could do a lot worse than buy this release.
