Ollie has been DJing for the whole of his adult life and his tastes lie both in dance music (house, techno and garage from every era) and the genres that influenced and inspired dance including disco, soul, funk, R&B, 80’s pop and Hip Hop.
He can draw on this to create a chilled lounge atmosphere, underground groove or just deliver classic after classic – and even combine the three if necessary.
His ethos of delivering an unwavering commitment to quality music with a firm focus on what the crowd and event really needs has led him to take centre-stage at both music-oriented and social events, jumping between playing alongside dance music luminaries such as Jackmaster, Oneman, Dusky, Boddika, Waze & Odyssey, T. Williams and Digital Mystikz, performing at festivals across the country and abroad including the Southern Comfort Juke Joint Silent Disco, Secret Garden Party, Hideout Festival Croatia, Annie Mac’s Lost and Found Festival in Malta and providing the music for formal balls, private parties and corporate events across London including the Royal Academy of Engineering Party at Prince Philip House, The Royal Academy of Arts, The Institute of Contemporary Arts, the V&A Museum and for Facebook.
Ollie is happy to land anywhere on the scale from selecting tasteful tracks to creating enjoyable and relaxing background music to delivering peak time excitement on the dancefloor.
