Biography

Tayo is a familiar face on the breaks scene where he can safely lay claim to helping shape the nu skool sound in the late 90’s alongside fellow breaksters Adam Freeland and Rennie Pilgrem, who together promoted the genre forming Friction parties at Bar Rhumba & The End.

After mixing his first Y4K album in 2000 his profile soon exploded to a worldwide audience. Not one to hang around, he quickly took things to the next level, launching his own label Mob Records with the debut release coming from long time friend and major breaks player Rennie Pilgrem with the seminal Some Place Funky. Over the years Mob Records released original music and remixes from artists including The Stanton Warriors, Lee Coombs, Kevin Beber, JDS, Santos, Meat Katie, Klaus Hill and Krafty Kuts to name but a few. To date Tayo has released four mix albums, and is the only artist to release two Y4K albums for Distinctive.

Leaving Mob Records behind in 2004 Tayo has continued to diversify. He ran the Kiss100 Breakbeat Show for three years, ensuring it became an essential stopover for any breaks and beats artist when in town. Artists as diverse as MIA, Diplo, Rebel MC, and Smith & Mighty rubbed shoulders with the cream of the breaks and dubstep scenes as the show became a celebration of the syncopated sound. This did not go unnoticed at Radio One, who asked Tayo to move to the station at the beginning of 2006 to become one of the DJ’s on The Residency, then In New DJs We Trust.
