Began my journey as a house party deejay with Active Force Sounds System. This sounds system group was inspired by talented deejays such as
Having the opportunity to be a member of Active Force enabled me to learn, grow and master my craft in the deejay profession. Through regular practicing i was able to master the mic and enhance my mixing style, which has made me be the entertainer i am today! In early 2001 The Specialist and Davy Diamond joined CHOICE FM. We presented the legendary After Party Mix Show. This popular show was presented every Saturday from 3am until 6am. This was part of the developmental and progressive stage of The Specialist.
Hi music lovers! I am one of the top Jazz Steel Pan instrumentalist and enjoy listening to and learning from my icon on Steel Pans- The great Len Boogsie Sharpe and the other vectren steel pan soloists established and developing.
I love jazz music and my roots are from growing up around Caribbean (St. Lucian and Jamaican) Music, as well as international music filtering throughout my existence. I enjoy music that has been passed down, or learned, through singing and dancing. The Djmbi is the instrument I play when relaxing. I can reach great highs and depths while playing Djembi. I look forward to putting down some recordings of my current Caribbean J@zz Quintet Pan-Ultimate just

From a child, I have always been surrounded by music. Whether it be my mum playing country, soca and reggae on a Sunday or my sisters tuning into pirate radio to hear soul and rare groove. I've always collected music from vinyl to tapes, CDs and now mp3s. I grew up and raved mostly to RnB during the 90s but always knew 70s and 80s soul music definitely touched my soul. So as l got older, I kept going back discovering soul music and being amazed by what I heard. Even to this day, I will still get up early on the weekend before anyone else, make myself a coffee put on my headphones and take a journey to find new old music and listen out for new tunes which have that same feel.

Born & raised in the Streets of Paddington, West London. Where music was a big part of people's everyday lives, including yours truly. From an early age I was surrounded by the eclectic sounds of the late 60's & early 70's & dove in with both feet. By the time I was in Secondary School my musical tastes had been defined. I got heavily into Soul, Jazz Funk & Boogie, I was a proper little Soul Boy. Listening to pirate radio stations at the time, with my metal coat hanger in hand trying to improve & strengthen the signal coming out of stations like Radio Luxemburg with Tony Prince, Radio Invicta with their host of brilliant DJs including my all-time favourite DJ on the radio Steve Devone. Along with the strong & excellent signals (no hanger required) of Capital Radio with Greg Edwards, Radio London with Robbie Vincent, I was good to go. Jumping forward when I left school, I got into sounds systems, I've been in 2. firstly, FutureBeat Roadshow with my schoolmate & lifetime partner in crime David "Morpheus" Alleyne & then with The FunBunch with 2 other Uber Cool school friends Dennis "DTM" Grey & Darren "Daz-I-Que" Benjamin, playing the very best in Soul, Hip Hop & other musical styles. With the FunBunch I really came into my own. Although we are not as active as we used to be, we have done a great many memorable functions, including 30 years at Notting Hill Carnival, with which we still do. I also since the early 90's have worked for a Disco Agency Sibbo's Discos (AKA GP Discos in recent times). I could write more but it already feels like I've done a version of War & Peace. So, come & join the JB experience on Snapback FM with my Saturday Soul-Volution Show, from 4-7pm. With the best in Soulful House & Soulful Grooves.
I am DJ V.I have been involved in music all my life from Ballroom Dancing Music, by the late Joey Lewis, Latin American Music, Soca, the good old Calypso’s by The Mighty Sparrow, Sniper plus many others. I also played Steel Pan in Trinidad and here in the U.K on my return. I have been a DJ for over 20 years and used to throw my own Dances once every month at the Senior Citizen Centre in Tottenham Hale (which is being knocked down to build flats). I am disable but I still have the appetite to play music and I caters for those listeners not always catered for my mainstream DJ’s. I hope to continue playing at my best, but I am aware there’s always room for improvement in ones’ life. So, sit back and let the music on fill your heart and soul with happiness. DJ V
