Sy started djing professionally in 1989 playing hip-hop, soul and house. He gained a residency at a nightclub called Venus in Nottingham in 1990 whilst still at university. The night became legendary, and because of this he was booked at events all over the Midlands, such as Nemesis in Leicester, Amnesia in Coventry, Time in Birmingham and at The Eclipse (the ravers’ mecca!)
Having gained a name as a Dj with a style of mixing that was unique to the newly born rave scene, other promoters such as Dizstruxshon, Dreamscape, Helter Skelter, Obsession, Fantasia, Interdance and Perception included Sy on their line-ups. Club work all over the country and abroad followed and helped to establish his reputation as the “Scratchmaster”.
Sy’s individual mixing ability has maintained his popularity with ravers young and old and his infamous Old Skool sets are still in high demand. He is still one of the hardest working and in demand DJ’s on the circuit and can be found playing all over the country every weekend - his constant high quality upfront sets helped him gain the title of Hardcore Heaven’s “Hardcore Dj Of The Year” for the past 2 years in succession! Sy appears at virtually every major UK Hardcore gig, including Slammin Vinyl, Hardcore Heaven, HTID, Uproar, Dizstruxshon, Uprising and Phuture Beatz.
The hardcore scene has benefited recently from a surge in interest, with the quality and content of the music vastly improved from the lull in the late ‘90s. Together with his long-time producing partner, DJ Unknown, Sy has helped this newly found faith in hardcore, and their co-owned record label, Quosh Records, now boasts an impressive discography of over 90 releases.
