In2beats Current DJ/Presenter
I’ve been DJing/Presenting since 1998. I originally broke into local commercial radio as a presenter for the Chiltern FM at the age of 19. I joined In2beats back in 2016 where I began hosting a show called ‘Weekend Anthems’ I’m a huge dance music fan and this gave the perfect platform to start playing my favourite old skool, throw back and dance anthems. I also play the best in new dance music too!
It all began when Silva heard Steve “Silk” Hurley – Jack Your Body back in 1986, He had to have this song. This was his first ever vinyl purchase. There would still be another 13 years before he purchased his first set of decks and yet he still didn’t know how to mix. After many visits to “Just A Groove” record shop, and an unknowingly KC teaching him how to mix without him actually asking
As far as I can remember I have always love music, disco music was my first love from the tramps.. disco inferno Thelma Houston.. dont leave me this way.donna summer .. jackson 5.. when disco came to a end i had to find a new fix which was jazz funk in the early 80s great times great brit funk band fell in love with the soul boogie music leroy burgess for example.. started to spend so much money on vinyl records, imported American soul music was taking over my life started to live in nite clubs in London Thursday Friday and Saturday night. they were the glory days for me.
