From a small Welsh town in the UK in a quiet Valley, Ollie grew up with a not so quiet taste for Hard Dance music. From the age of 15 with his first clubbing experiences in the likes of crystal rooms in Hereford and The Hippo club in Cardiff, the UK Hardhouse scene was booming!

Picking up his first set of decks at the age of 14 there was an immediate love for the feel of vinyl and the pace of the music that was eclipsing all other genres at the time. Ollie helped set up local charity fundraisers at an early age with the local DJ gang which gave him the taste of playing out live. An eager clubber throughout the late 90’s and 00’s, Ollie followed the scene from Bournemouth Operah house to Lakota in Bristol, to London and of course every event possible that was happening in the capital of Wales Cardiff.

 

Gracing the decks at venues locally in Newport and Cardiff, Ollie was also asked to play on the Greek island of Zante whereby he was able to tie in some holiday time whilst introducing Hardhouse to the Blue Ocean club in Laganas. In 2014 a bambino was on the way and the DJ equipment was swapped out for a new venture in life. Becoming a father was undoubtedly the best and most challenging chapter but losing a passion driven hobby in the process was equally disappointing.

 

Late 2019 the new setup arrived and the DJing commenced. By late 2020 Ollie’s new studio space is underway and he’s ready to continue doing what he loves and that keeping the Hardhouse scene alive. Ollie holds a weekly slot on Mashup Radio, has played regularly for the Digital Assault gang including a monumental charity event which featured the likes of Andy Farley, Amber D, Guyver and Technikal. Onboard with the Visceral Records crew is the next exciting step in Ollie’s DJ future and he can’t wait to continue adding to the scene.
