To achieve this Eddie has spent nearly a decade honing his skills on the decks. Having caught the DJ-ing bug at 15 when he bought his first set of decks, he was too young for clubs so channelled his creative energies into a Music Technology course where he learnt some of his now renowned hip hop scratches. His ability to adapt these to fit over other genres of music has earned him not only respect amongst fellow DJ’s but also admiration from stunned crowds.
