From a early age Rob was always interested in music , first given a keyboard for his 10th birthday, the love for music has never left him. Early production experience from secondary school started Rob on his path to dance music production. Using a modest Cubase midi based setup , Rob began to learn the basics of multi-track recording from his mid-teens.
After completing school , Rob became interested in the DJing side of music and a new chapter began in his life. Browsing the record shop aisles for hours and hours , Rob became very interested in House music. Artists such as Mousse T , Boris Dlugosch and Masters at Work inspired this young DJ to collect records of a Soulful / Funky House nature , and was very much into the U.S. Garage sound. A few years passed and Rob honed his skills as a DJ and played in local Clubs around Milton Keynes, he decided it was time to re-embrace his first passion, making House music. Rob built a modest but workable studio setup in a back room, it was here where he spent hour upon hour and very many late nights learning the ins and outs of music production.
This takes us up to around 2005 , and Rob was ready to have his music released onto the masses. This came in the form of a few Funky House white label 12" bootlegs and a digital release on Australian house label 'Infamous Light Recordings'. This served as good promotion for Rob and led him to releasing more and more remixes for various digital labels , such as 'Newlite Muzik' and a newly formed Soulful House label called 'Reelgroove'. During this time , Rob decided it was time to get back into DJing , and embraced CDJ technology , as he could easily mix music from the artists he loved as well as his own productions. This gave Rob a unique sound and opened up opportunities to play at some of London's finest clubs (including Ministry of Sound and SeOne).
This pretty much takes you up to where Rob is today , he has never been more in love with House music and enjoys playing club and bar locations nationally and internationally and has further enhanced his DJ method by embracing the latest DJing technology in the form of Native Instruments 'Traktor', as well as remixing for elite labels such as 'Swing City' and has recently had material appear on mainstream compilations such as 'HedKandi'.
