DJ Spence bought his first piece of vinyl in 1977. It was the Wombling Song as sung by the Ships' Company of HMS Ark Royal. His first serious entry into DJing was in 1988 when he purchased "Into the Dragon", a seminal dance album by Bomb the Bass, and tried to mix it into "It Takes Two" by Rob Base and DJ EZ Rock on a crappy stereo player that his mum bought him for Christmas. The rave scene beckoned and after years on dancefloors from 1990-1994 he purchased his first decks and started to DJ properly. In 1998 he got bored of playing other people's music and started writing his own tracks and remixing at home for something to do. Oh, and he plays guitar badly too.

Did a bit of pirate radio in 1995-6 ("Shockwave 105.5, The Southwest's Musical Heartbeat") 'til the police took our transmitter away. Shockwave is now back from the dead as a webcast but I'm not involved this time around.
