It all started way back in 2001 when I started the clubbing scene. At that time the music in the clubs varied from commercial music, techno, trance, house and italodance. Brady started to gather interest in how the DJ was capable of mixing and beat match the tracks in such a perfect manner and so I started my intuition in DJing. In 2002 he got his first gig at Axis Discotheque in which at that time he was only 16 years old. Till today the love for music kept growing in me and during these years I managed to get gigs in almost all the clubs in Malta and private events.
