Over recent years Karl has continued to develop his sound, fusing a mix of deep house, Nu disco and electro-funk and spent 4 years as a resident at the legendary AKA London for ‘The Players’ with guest appearances at Mulletover, East Village, Supper Cl..
Karl’s earliest memories of dance music take him right back to the early 80’s where his initial love for soul, funk, disco and rare groove first developed his appetite for Djing. With the arrival of hip hop and electro-funk during the mid 80’s, Karl developed his sound and began gigging at local west London parties and roller disco's whilst sharing his musical findings through his increasingly popular mix tapes.
This continued throughout the late 80 and early 90’s and with the explosion of the dance music scene, Karl was finally old enough to bring his sound to clubland. Under the 'Speedy' Moniker, he embraced the early House and Drum & Bass scene performing at legendary nights and venues such as The Africa Centre, The Wag, The Brain, Fantasy FM (Astoria), Fusion, RAW, AWOL, Desire 2000AD, Adrenalin Village whilst hosting regular shows on the London pirates.
As the 90’s drew to a close, Karl was continually captivated by New York house and the disco influenced sounds of Louie Vega, Kenny Carpenter, Joe Clausell and Kenny dope. This sound took him back to his early influences and before long he was busy developing his love for the deep US House.
Continuing to push boundaries and developing his unique DJ style into the millennium, it wasn’t long before he was busy co-promoting his own nights across West London with regular guest appearances at Notting Hill Arts Club, Subterrania, Cherry Jam, Cobden, and the world famous Notting Hill Carnival.
Over recent years Karl has continued to develop his sound, fusing a mix of deep house, Nu disco and electro-funk and spent 4 years as a resident at the legendary AKA London for ‘The Players’ with guest appearances at Mulletover, East Village, Supper Club, The End, The Canal Parties, GO!Zilla, Body Talk, Cargo, Neighborhood, The Cobden, Paradise, Pasha and Ministry of Sound, to name but a few.
In 2012 Karl continues his monthly residency at Supper Club London and is currently busy working on production projects scheduled for releases in 2012.
