HISTORY Smallkutz was a late starter in DJ'ing, he started mixing in early 2008 although gave it a go in the late 90's at a friends house spinning house music on vinyl. His love for music from an early age has lead him to break dancing in a local park as a teenager to sharing his love of music on internet radio. The dancing didn't end there, in a duo with an old school buddy, going to parties, enjoying music such as; De La Soul, Soul 2 Soul & other various Hip Hop, then later getting into Dreamscape, Helter Skelter, Quest & Psychosis. This lead to meeting up with more dancers from Telford who also liked the scene, doing dance challenges with a crew at the Hummingbird & Quest in Birmingham and throughout the midlands. In 2008 the mixing bug had kicked in. Wanting to give it a go he bought his first set of decks from another close friend known as DJ Twice Daily, a set of CDJ-100s. Twice Daily held many DJ parties at his house, with many different DJ's and styles of music mixed, from Drum n Bass, Dubstep, House & Hip Hop. He also mentioned that to be a DJ you need a name, so being Small and the use of Cutting techniques in mixing, the two were combined.
