Formerly of the UK garage outfit The Dreem Teem, Spoony's sets are guaranteed to rock any club floor.
In his ten years as a professional DJ, Spoony has captivated dance floors and the air-waves all over the world. His broadcasting career started on London Underground (a leading pirate radio station in the mid-nineties), a ground-breaking show on Kiss 100 was to follow as a member of The Dreem Teem with Mikee B and Timmi Magic. The demand was there to take the UK garage sound national and this came via a stint on Galaxy FM then the big Radio1.
He is undoubtedly one of the UKs leading DJs. As official resident DJ at award-winning Twice as Nice, Spoony set the standards still prevalent in club-land today. When UK garage needed a disciple to take it around the UK and beyond it was Spoony’s ability to entertain and educate the dance floor that made him that man! As a member of The Dreem Teem Spoony was responsible for making UK garage the international phenomenon it became.
As much as he has rubbed shoulders with some of the world’s most famous, he is most in his element behind the decks entertaining the masses… and after a decade as a professional DJ there has been some entertaining! He has been the unofficial ambassador of UK garage taking the music first to Ibiza and Ayai Napa, Miami and New York. Amsterdam was also a favourite as was Cape Town and Italy.
The media friendly DJ has also crossed over into the world of television. As well as contesting the current edition of Strictly Come Dancing on BBC, he has presented Soccer AM on Sky Sports and made appearances on numerous hit TV programmes such as Never Mind the Buzzcocks, The Weakest Link and Test the Nation.
As a DJ Spoony mixed the gold selling Twice as Nice compilation series Summer of Love I, II and III and as a member of Dreem Teem, Spoony turned underground sounds into national chart hits. The chart smash Dreem Teem Theme led to work on multiple re-mixes for artists including Shola Ama, All Saints and Faith Evans. Buddy X 99, featuring Neneh Cherry, is their biggest hit to date. In 2004 Spoony was the executive producer on a re-worked All Together Now by The Farm, the official song for the England Euro 2004 football campaign.
His contribution to club-land was recognised in 2001 when he was awarded the prestigious Mobo for Best DJ. This capped a great five years of UK garage growing from an underground music to being at the forefront of the UK’s club scene.
Spoony injects a cheeky style into everything he does, be it entertaining an intimate crowd at Mr. Beckham’s birthday party or shaking his stuff in front of millions on Strictly Come Dancing. Few DJs can say they have remained at the top of a scene for near on a decade, yet this man can!
“I only wanted to play records and make people dance.” he said. Mission accomplished I’d say.
