About De Hornet

At 15 De Hornets strong desire to become a DJ was sparked after friends Linden C & Rob Atkinson took him along to a watch a set they were playing at Bentley's (Canning town), Growing up in the East end Hornet was influenced by the musical trends around him... (acid hardcore!!) & thanks to his best mate Phil (who owned the only set of sl 1210s in the area) Hornet discovered he had natural talent for djing & within 6 months he played a regular set at Dungeons (The Greyhound Pub)

Hornets career in music took off accidentally back in 1987 when at the age of 16 he was sent by his school to the careers office to sort his life out!! in his unenthusiastic attitude to anything other than music Hornet took the worst job offered which was delivering leaflets.... This actually led to his lucky break!!!!

The company was karma productions & the leaflets were actually flyer's, this job not only gained him entry into some of the most elite places but into the company of some of the great DJs of the day, 6 months into working for karma productions co worker & DJ Lin Cosgrove discovered Hornets skills & suggested to management that he took over her set when she left to tour Hong Kong with Ministry, This he did...

Hornet started playing warm up at Fun City, Buzzbys & was quickly asked play various other sets & frequently called on when headliners didn't show, where he not only held his own but totally smashed it!!!... as his profile grew he played along side DJ greats like Tommy Musto, Colin Dale, Grooverider, Fabio, Mr C, Colin Flavor & Linden C with PAs from Colaboy, Shades of Rhythm & Real2Real. Karma started using Hornet at it's main night (the biggest UK party back in the day) "Energy" where he played along side DJ legends Carl Cox, Stuart Banks, Sasha, Mickey Finn, Jumping Jack Frost, with live PAs from Altern8, Bizarre inc & Prodigy. At only 17 (1988)Hornet had aspired from warm up set to playing in front 1500 + clubbers!..

Throughout the 90's Hornet continued to raise the roof at parties all over the country, refining his talents & taking him through the entire rave scene! In 1992 Hornet took a job in De Underground Records (ForestGate) working with Dj Randall, Cool Hand Flex & Uncle 22, this putting the De in De Hornet, he also played on various radio shows (cool FM, pleasure FM, wwwFM). In the mid 90's as the music scene changed De Hornet left behind the drum n bass scene to make the crossover into the much loved House & made the natural progression into managing his own nights "Wild Dreams" which over many successful years took him to Club Grays, Hubble & co, Treasa Joanna (boat party) etc

In 2003 & in search of a quieter life De Hornet made the move to the south coast town of Bournemouth, where after only a short break he found himself back in the the music scene & doing what he loves & does best... putting on parties!!! in 2004 De Hornet launched "God Made Me Funky" parties, kicking of a very successful first night with the Hoxton Whores!........
