Stache is not just a DJ, the Sounds of Stache is an experience.
A purveyor of deep, infectious housey grooves and a funky, feel good atmosphere; his emotive musical selection and blending are his own therapy.
Growing up on an electric diet of Funk, Soul, Jazz, House & Drum and Bass, his early years were a mixed spectrum of musical influences. Today, this translates into sets where he picks apart and infuses together all the pieces of the music that he loves best.
Getting his first public spin on the decks in 1999, overseen by his uncle, Daddy Russell (Progress) at the tender age of 12 @ Café Mambo Ibiza, he has never looked back.
The early 2000’s saw him influence the Grime scene under the alias 'Crafty' as part of the 'Double Impact Crew'. The loosely formed collective of DJ’s and M.C.’s had numerous underground hits including “One More Time” which featured heavily in the vinyl bags of Grime Dj’s all over London Town and earnt them a slot at the world famous Fabric nightclub.
In 2009, Stache co-founded ‘Obese Beats’ and sent shock waves through British bass culture as the company went on to book a host of high profile names in the dance music world such as Rusko, Nero, Beat Assassins, Fred V & Grafix, Mistajam & Ed Solo to name a few.
2012 saw him pack up his bags and store the vinyl in the shed to satisfy the wanderlust in his system. Since then he has pursued a double life as a backpacker and DJ- Touring the globe, he has played in venues in France, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Thailand, Myanmar, Bali, Lombok, Australia, New Zealand and Japan.
Having cultivated his craft, and developed an appreciation and deep understanding of delivering music to the dance floor, Stache mixes high-level energy and melodic funky grooves to perfection. Always guaranteed to get a party started!
