On The Decks

DJ Astrojazz at Kelburn Garden PartyUltimately Astrojazz is all about supporting good music. When not working out of the office, I spread the Astrojazz gospel through my DJ residencies and guest spots. Since blowing a student loan in 1997 to bag a pair of Technics 1210s, DJ Astrojazz has been spinning a huge range of music ever since. From jazz, afrobeat and tropicalismo, through funk, soul, hip-hop and dub to the myriad cutting-edges of modern electronica and dance, the sound of DJ Astrojazz is diverse yet tight, and designed to move dancefloors of all kinds to a unique blend of music from across continents and ages.

DJ Astrojazz has played hundreds of shows over the years, from sweaty basements clubs to large festival stages, notable gigs including Gugulethu Township in Cape Town, boat parties in the Adriatic, jazz clubs in Finland, Arcadia Afterburner at Glastonbury, Nyege Nyege Festival in Uganda and all over the UK at some point. He is resident DJ at a number of iconic Edinburgh clubights including Samedia Shebeen, Departure Lounge and Four Corners. He has hosted and supported a huge range of top class artists, like Gilles Peterson, Mr Scruff, Candi Staton, Guru & Jazzmatazz, Bonobo, Tony Allen, Roy Ayers, Quantic Soul Orchestra, Antibalas…the list goes on and on.
