DJ SKINZ BIO.
Dj Skinz first started messing around with two turntables, and like most aspiring DJ’s his first audience were the four
walls of his bedroom.
Years of fine-tuning his skills as a DJ made him confident enough to seek out his first big chance, and that opportunity
came at the legendary midweek club night Soul Kitchen back in 2000, at the now titled Capitol Club.
Soulkitchen was without doubt the hottest midweek R&B club night in London town, and DJ Skinz was one of DJ’s
that made it the place to be seen at. After years of spinning to some of London most elite ravers led DJ Skinz into
other hot spots in London most notably Ministry Of Sound, Embassy, Indigo O2 and Runway & Fabric.
To make sure he never lost touch with the real street DJ Skinz did his fair share of house parties.
His high prominence in London’s club land and friendship with DJ Swing led him to join the infamous Boogie Bunch
This progressed into his first stint at Twice as Nice at Club Coliseum every Sunday night which lasted
for three years. During that time Skinz rubbed shoulders and cross faders with Radio One’s Trevor Nelson,DJ Jazzy Jeff
and Will Smith,Idris Elber and Twice as Nice residents Steve Sutherland, and on many occasion ended up with superstars like
Will i Am, Usher, Tine Tempah, DMX Jay-Z, Kelis, Missy, P Diddy and Usher joining him on the stage. Not content with just
playing at Twice As Nice Skinz began to feature as a DJ at various clubs and events across the UK like London’s Wireless
Festival in 2013 alongside Jay-Z Justin Timberlake, Snoop Dogg, Nas, A$AP Rocky, Miguel, Kendrick Lamar, Big Sean,
Calvin Harris, Emeli Sande, Rita Ora & Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, MTV’s Lick Parties, Ministry Of Sounds Smoove
(Resident Dj) which is M.O.S. most popular urban night which is now all over the globe and the Uk.
After a few guest spots on Kiss 100 FM and London’s urban station Choice FM (Now Capital 1Xtra) Dj Skinz was
invited onto Ministry Of Sound’s radio station in 2006 to hosts the only Urban show on the station (which ran for 3 years) His new weekly radio show on Mi-Soul Radio is broadcast every Thursday between 11pm and 1am (GMT) and
features only the hottest new Hip Hop & r&b and the classiest of classics.

Dubai (PGA Golf Tour & Snoop Dogg’s After Party) Malaysia, America, Ireland, Croatia, Muscat, Estonia, Africa and the South Of France (Cannes Film Festival) Sweden (Kayne West After Party) Japan & Egypt, Abu Dhabi (F1 Official Party)
