Something Creative

With over 10 years experience in the music industry The Kaptin lives, eats and breaths it.

Starting off as both a DJ and promoter in Cardiff with the notorious Higher Learning and Secret Garden Parties he became one of the country’s premier party DJs and a staple of the festival circuit with slots at Glastonbury, Bestival, Glade, Electric Picnic and Swn amongst others. He heads up the Chrome Kids family who have recorded mixes for BBC Radio 1, BBC 1Xtra and BBC Radio Wales and has stood in as host for BBC Introducing in Wales on Radio 1 . He is also a member of both the Big Swing Soundsystem and Wedding Crashers alongside Matt The Hat and has been a resident DJ at many different nights from Hip-hop (Higher Learning) to Reggae (One Drop) to Disco (Slipped Disco).

As well as DJing, Kaptin was head programmer at both Cardiff Arts Institute and London Pleasure Gardens and manages the Electronic Bass Rock group Astroid Boys. He also runs both the Champion Sound and Chrome Kids music blogs and hosts the fortnightly Chrome Kids Radio Show on Radio Cardiff.

With an international address book and a booking roster of some of the best bands and DJ’s in the UK you can bet that he is never more than three feet away from the next big thing.
