Stemming from a musical background, CJ developed a love for music from an early age, taking piano lessons from the age of 9, studying music theory and playing bass guitar in number of bands with his friends. However his real passion lay in mixing and creating music which led him to strike a path of his own. At the age of 16 CJ started out DJing Garage and House but caught the DnB bug after his mates introduced him to helter-skelter tape packs, EZ Rollers and Roni Size. Hearing Roni Size’s “Brown Paper Bag” was the turning point and CJ knew he wanted to start writing DnB tracks.
A move to university in 2002 catapulted him deep into the music scene, and picked up a residency spot DJing at University along with offers to DJ in Birmingham. This was the summer of Bad Company’s “Shot down on Safari”, J- majik’s remix of Space Invader and DJ Marky’s smash “LK.” This was when the real roots of CJ’s own personal style began to take hold. CJ was experimenting with both the lighter and darker sides of drum and bass. However it was the soulful sounds of calibre, DJ Marky and the newly Solo D-bridge that began to influence CJ more as time progressed.
Forward to 2010 and CJ’s production is fuelled by many different styles of DnB but his sound is centred around the more soulful, atmospheric and musical sides of DnB. Internetdj.com also votes CJ styles Artist of the Week describing him as an “Exceptionally talented DnB producer ”
