dj Ska N Mash is a selector based in the Essex area. Supporting bands, as sole dj and promoting events.
The range of music is strongly based on traditional reggae and ska, notably Trojan release, Island, Greensleeves, Studio One, Tighten Up etc. This is coupled with a keen interest in the 2-tone scene as well as 3rd wave productions.
Such a scene brings in plenty of other influences including dubwise, motown, northern soul, mod, indie & punk. As a dj I'm always on the lookout for new material, covers and remixes and quite often I'm offered dj exclusives
which are only available in digital form.
My other love are the mash-up releases and themed nights which might encompass rock, 70s/80s/90s disco, St Patricks, Burns, St Georges, Halloween, Christmas etc.
I've had the privilege to provide dj support to many acts, including UB40, The Dualers, Lee Thompson, Ocean Colour Scene, The Slackers, The Talks, Legend, Captain Ska, One Step Behind, Los Palmas 6, Special Kinda Madness, The
Kubricks, The Clashed, and many more. In November 2014 I was invited to perform 5 slots at Skamouth alongside Neville Staple, Desmond Dekker Aces, Bad Manners, Patsy & Stranger, Small Fakers, Big 10, Mainly Madness, + more. I
was also part of the dj team for Skabour Festival in Folkestone for 2015 and 2016. And part of the dj team for Brentwood Festival 2014, 2015 and 2016. Plus the sole dj for Ska Train Festival based in Cambridge.
I dj digitally, with CDs and with vinyl according to the requirements of the event.
