Meet our Essex DJs
Mobile DJ Essex
“Music has always been a huge part of life for mess being a DJ in Essex full time is a dream come true.
From a young age, my parents would take me to our local social club.
Consequently, I would cover my ears at hearing the same 50’s to 70’s songs that were constantly being played over the crackling speakers.
Often played by a mobile DJ with a vast array of disco lights.
Needless to say, I’d come to appreciate the classics later in life.
Let’s face it, many of them are still the staples of any good party.
Fast forward to my teenage years and I fell in love with the UK Garage scene.
Starting on pirate radio stations, and working my way up to playing in many of the major clubs across Essex with some of the best DJs.
It was fun while it lasted, but my musical tastes grew exponentially.
Before long, the thought of playing one genre of music for the whole night, became too repetitive.
The club and bar scene had lost some of it’s draw and I stepped away from the decks and became immersed in listening to new music.
I gained an appreciation for the classics I had grown up listening to.
Eventually, broadening my horizons to the point where I felt confident I could be hired as a DJ for almost any event.
Over the years it has become a lucky dip what I can found listening to from one day to the next.
Monday Mathew & The Atlas may just be firing out of my headphones.
By Tuesday I could be in the mood for some Hip Hop and R&B with the likes of Jay Z, Frank Ocean and Usher making appearances.
Wednesday it might be time for the Indie bands to take over, with some Killers, Fratellis, Kaiser Chiefs and Arctic Monkeys.
Thursday might bring about a day discovering new artists, and exploring genres I hadn’t previously known about.
Friday could be a free-for-all where anything goes.
Everything from Rudimental, Stevie Wonder, Hot Since 82, Aretha Franklin & Earth Wind and Fire.
I pride myself on being a party DJ who has the ability to create the right atmosphere at the right time.
Be it a summer boho style garden wedding, a birthday party or special event.
I always make sure the music is specifically tailored to the event at hand.
This is achieve by making sure I know exactly what the client wants before I set foot through the doors of the venue”
Wedding Music Essex
I have always been surrounded by music.
Growing up in the 80’s and being brought to various social clubs as a youngster with my family. For me, this is where the passion began.
I remember being a pot boy in my teens and bringing my music with me as they always let me play the last hour.
Current music to the classics
Furthermore, I have an appreciation for all types of music and love the old favourites from the original master frank Sinatra to Elvis, Bowie the Beatles the list goes on.
In the early nineties, I started my vinyl collection, spending almost every weekend in various music shops, listening to the latest tracks and expanding my collection.
Where I started
Believe it or not , I actually fell into DJing by chance decades ago. It all started with a family friends engagement party.
The DJ pulled out a few days before the event. Everyone new I had a huge collection of music, so I stood in, which gave me an excuse to buy my first set of CD decks.
The party was a success and I never looked back. Since then I knew then this was something more than just a hobby I wanted to do this properly.
My passion for garage and dance music grew in the late 90’s.
Growing up, I was always to be found in my bedroom mixing on my decks before a night out.
I have an extensive collection of vinyl and still enjoy getting the old technics 1210’s out and having a mix.
Every year the music industry just keeps giving us such fantastic music it’s exciting to see what comes next.
Over the years I have played at various functions from pubs to birthdays parties weddings and even a couple of celebrity parties.
In addition, I also did a season in Ayia Napa where I had a residency in a nightclub and all day party boat events.
Varied music tastes
I have hosted everything, from soul nights 80’s, indie and dance club classics night’s.
The rich mix of genres is what I love playing Stevie wonder one minute then Fat Boy Slim or kings of Leon the next.
I am passionate about making your day special I will work with you to provide and meet all your requirements.
If you send me a playlist I will make sure every request is played, ultimately it’s your big day, however if you would sooner leave it to me then I can I am more than comfortable to work off a rough guide of a few songs or preferred genres.
I can be as structured or relaxed as your event requires, I have the experience to know what works and what fills the floor.
Ultimately, it’s all about creating the right atmosphere and making your event one to remember.
Where it all began
“I have always been around music, passed on mainly from my Dad, who had a vinyl collection to match the best of them.
Coincidentally, he was also one of the best Wedding DJs in the UK during his younger years.
Varying from John Holt, The Stones, Bob Marley, David Bowie, the list goes on …
His taste was definitely as varied as is mine now.
As I hit my teens however, I was fully hooked on the UK dance scene.
I purchased my first pair of belt drive sound lab decks and away I went.
I lived in record shops, and spent every weekend chasing down the newest music and spent the rest of my free time mastering my craft behind the turntables.
Eventually, I upgraded my decks to Tecnhic 1200s and that took it all to another level.
These were the decks I would later use in numerous night clubs and parties.
Musically these days, I am not a one genre DJ, far from it in fact.
Love of music
It’s easy and somewhat of a clichè to say that I love all music , but I’ve always lived by the rule that if I like it, then I like it.
I can be listening to Mobb Deep one minute and the next minute be in the mood for some Motown classics.
Furthermore, skip to the next day and my headphones will be blasting out some 80’s & 90’s classics.
I believe music has no boundaries.
There is certainly enough music out there for me to use so that I can make your wedding or party an event that pleases and appeals to everyone .
Myself and David, of Fox And Braces, are long standing friends, we’ve had many a mixing sessions over the 20 odd years we’ve known each other.
When Dave and Dan approached me to join their wedding DJ business, I said “YES!” without hesitation.
Joining the best Wedding & Party DJs in Essex
Fox And Braces totally encapsulate me as a modern Wedding DJ, as they too have a deep understanding and appreciation for music.
And more importantly, the same approach to customer events and their needs.
Moreover, as an experienced DJ, I am here to deliver exactly what you specify for your Wedding.
However, if you feel like you need some help or would rather me work off of a rough script, I am happy and confident to be able to deliver that too.
Whichever way your party or wedding is planned, I can guarantee people will remember the occasion for all the right reasons”
“I started to DJ in Essex at 15 years old, I had to learn the hard way on a set of old belt drive turntables.
Before long I had upgraded my Dj equipment, and by 18 I was a regular at some of the best bars and clubs in London .
Passion for DJ’ing
This passion for music and DJ’ing has been a theme that has since continued throughout my life
This has lead to me DJ’ing at 100’s of private events and birthday parties.
Including being hired as a DJ for celebrity clients and even politicians.
I got to know Dan and Dave through a mutual friend who mentioned they had started a DJ hire company in Essex called Fox and Braces in 2017.
A company that differed a little from the norm.
Fox and Braces
The name alone intrigued me enough to look at the site and I instantly knew it was something I wanted to be part of.
I believed in giving people an alternative to the standard Essex wedding and party DJ.
After sitting down with Dan and Dave and talking music for a few hours.
We all agreed that I would be able to add something extra to what had quickly become a growing business.
My music taste is about as varied as they come.
At heart, I still lock myself away in my music room and spend hours mixing House & Garage classics.
But my repoitore expands far beyond the music I grew up on.
I feel completely at home dropping the best of the 80’s, throwing in some Indie Bangers, adding in some Motown anthems.
In addition to the latest UK Top 40 or getting people going to some soulful funk.
Chilled out vibe
If it’s a more relaxed, chilled out vibe you are after, I can cater to this too.
Creating a welcoming and classy atmosphere weddings or parties with a selection of carefully selected acoustic and vocal tracks to see away a summers afternoon.
I take pride in what I do, and what Fox and Braces stand for as a company.
Finally, I guarantee to give people what they hoped for on the day of their wedding or event”
Where I started
My passion for club-based music and DJing started when I was at school in the mid-nineties.
Two of my best friends were heavily into House, Garage and Jungle. One of them happened to have a set of Gemini belt drives and it wasn’t long before I was chomping at the bit to get involved.
By the time I got to University, I had my own set of Technic 1210’s and a semi reliable mixer and speaker set up.
Playing in some of the biggest clubs
Before long I was tearing up the house parties and playing residencies at some of Brighton’s biggest club promotions.
After I graduated I found a career in Financial services in London and before long music took a temporary back seat.
DJ’ing at weddings
As my old circle of friends started to plan their weddings, I started being asked to DJ at their weddings and afterparties.
I guess it was a perk of being responsible for the sound track of our student lives.
I found it an honour to be involved in something as personal as a wedding and was tailoring sets to my friend’s and partner’s demands.
Often, I was having to delve into new genres and test myself by learning to accurately read the crowd as the night progressed.
The great feedback that I was starting to get from not only friends, but their guests and families opened my eyes to wedding DJing as a potential career.
Now having played numerous weddings and events at many prestigious venues I can truly say that I have never looked back.
I aim to tailor my sets to my clients’ tastes and feel that from just a basic playlist I have a great sense of judgement on what else matches their tastes.
What I love
The thing I love the most about being a DJ is the ability to help create memorable and special moments, something every wedding or event deserves.
Event DJs for Hire in Essex
Having spent almost half of my adult life as a DJ in Essex, I am confident in my ability as a party or wedding DJ to provide the best experience possible for your event.
I started DJ’ing at the age of 18, playing at friends parties, before moving on to playing at some of the best known bars and clubs across Essex.
As a result, I gained a reputation as someone who can fill the dance floor, whatever the occasion.
My passion for music what drives me as a DJ.
I am never satisfied with just playing the same set, time and time again.
I endeavour to give each DJ set, the time and thought is deserves in order to make it a memorable occasion for the client and their guests.
Weddings & Events
Coincidentally, I moved into Wedding DJ’ing at the end of 2016, after a friend invited me to play at their big day.
Above all, I relished the chance of playing a multi genre DJ set that would cater to all ages, and the day itself didn’t disappoint one bit.
Consequently, with a packed dance floor and a the opportunity to mix in the classics with brand new music, I found myself being more drawn to wedding & event DJ’ing, over the bar and club nights I had built my reputation up with.
A chance meeting
A few friends of mine in the Wedding Industry had mentioned Fox and Braces to me.
A Wedding DJ company who had started to build up a huge reputation as professional and well reviewed Wedding DJs.
I listened, looked them up and loved what I saw.
Subsequently, the very next day I happened to get chatting to someone at a local restaurant, we both had a passion for music, and were also DJ’s.
This person turned out to be one of the Directors at F&B.
We hit it off, and discussed in great detail, how they run their business and the level of care they put into each event.
With this in mind, I sent a DJ mix over the very next day, and after the guys listened,and heard how I approach my events, with care and a keen eye for detail, they asked me to come on board as their newest DJ.
An opportunity I took them up on without hesitation.
My DJ style
My style can be as relaxed or as up-tempo as you would like.
As your event DJ, I am confident in my skill set, and am able to blend together a selection of classics in the early part of the evening or an up the tempo one later in the evening, with a real kisstory styled DJ set.
Alternatively, if you prefer current music, R&B or Indie …. I have a music collection that can cater to almost any genre or taste.
Whatever the occasion. I guarantee to make sure your event is handled with the care and level of professionalism it deserves.
