On The Decks

img_0100Ultimately Astrojazz is all about supporting good music. When not working out of the office, I spread the Astrojazz gospel through the wheels of steel. Since blowing a student loan in 1997 to bag a pair of Technics 1210s, DJ Astrojazz has been spinning records of all kinds 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 tents, notable gigs including Gugulethu Township in Cape Town, a boat in the Adriatic, jazz clubs in Finland, Arcadia, Pussy Parlure and Rum Shack at Glastonbury, and all over the UK at some point. He is resident DJ at a number of venues and clubnights. He has supported a huge range of 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.
