As a teenager in 70's he had a blues band. Still has a lot of respect for the Rock & Blues legends from that era. Shortly he abandoned his band and moved into record collecting and exploring all kind of styles. His main early influences were Soul and Funk and later on Jazz. He discovered Brazilian, Latin and Jazz Dance when he moved to London in 1988, also Japanese and European Fusion. He was DJing occasionally. Inspired by Gilles Peterson's and Patrick Forge's radio programs and with a wish to share discoveries from his collection in 1996 he started his own radio program called Cosmic Sounds.
