DJ-ing is something I got into by luck rather than design early in 2002, after bottling out of what would have been my first solo gig in 6 years and doing a DJ set instead.
For the first couple of years I only played my own tunes and productions, mostly as a regular for Planet Angel, for whom I wrote about 3 hours worth of new tracks, including all of Inside the Voice Inside and Aria.
Once I started mixing in other people's tunes the bug quickly caught me - I loved being able to expand the kind of journeys I could take a crowd on, weaving in world music and psychedelic chill and stuff a lot more dubby than I produce myself.
I'm most at home playing in chill-out rooms, but ones where there is room to dance, where you can lift the tempo a bit if the energy is right.
I never plan a set in advance
