DJ Fen has come a long way in the music industry over the past 13 years, his passion is still strong! Fen is prolific in his field. His interest in Dj-ing started as a 13 year old sneaking into his older brothers bedroom to fool around on his decks. His serious enthusiasm for music came in the late eighties when the rave culture exploded. Fen soon found his preference in US garage and began playing out at house parties and started his own party nights in 1992 called 'Global House'
Still part of the Dj-ing duo 'Ramsey & Fen' who have been a household name for the last 11 years, the two of them can currently be heard on the popular station Choice 107.1fm (www.choicefm.com) with special mix shows at 3-6am Sunday mornings playing the best in UK Garage and House (Choice FM was recently acquired by the Capital Group).
Fen has, and still turns his hands to all aspects of music, from helping set up the pirate station London Underground together with Ramsey which opened the doors for many DJ's and producers to where they are today e.g. Danny Foster, Hermit, Jason Kaye, Richie Fingers, Daryl B, as well as a pre-Dreem Teem Mikee B, Timmi Magic and DJ Spoony who all met at the station -
Fen & Ramsey and also got involved in producing and re-mixing AFTER BEING INTRODUCED TO MJ COLE BY "MICHEAL HUGHES" WHO BROUGHT THE TRIO TOGETHER TO WORK ON TWO REMIXES of KYM Mazelles "big baby" and "quality" and the went on to do mixes to include the likes of The Heartists – Belo Horizonti, The fabulous Baker Boys – 'Oh Boy', N-tyc 'Telefunkin', Yazz 'Abandon Me', Jaheem –'Could it be', Robbie Craig – 'Special', Somore 'I refuse', 'Quality'- which all proved massively successful. They have also mixed high profile garage compilations such as Garage Nation and the 3rd volume of the Locked On series. In the year 2000 the 'Lovebug' Compilation was also released which included more Ramsey & Fen material.
Alongside Ramsey & MJ Cole, they produced some memorable material for BUG Records (which Fen founded with Ramsey back in 1996). A list of many hits came from the BUG camp which includes 'Style', 'Desire', 'Mad Changes', 'Always', 'Colours', 'Into You', 'Favourite Part of Me' and not forgetting 'Lovebug'.
In the club world, Fen has played all around the world touching down in Switzerland, Japan, Tenerife, Amsterdam (playing at the massive Dance Valley Festival), 'Privilege' Ibiza the largest club in the world, and not forgetting Aiya Napa-Cyprus. Closer to home Fen has performed at numerous clubs across the country.
He has several residencies in and around London. And not forgetting one of Fen's own nights Club Ventura created in 1998. Last year april 2004 saw the birth of a totally new concept in clubbing where fen and partners public demand records started a club night called "I'm a celebrity get me in here" which after a string of successful nights across the west end has proven to be a huge success. Also in 2005 a launch of another new night took place at London's embassy club every Thursday, which has established itself as London's place to be seen at.
