I first met reggae music in 1998. My brother came home with a bunch of reggae tapes and from that moment on there was no way of turning back. I was taken by the vibe and the philosophy of Jamaican music.
Initially I was a listener but later on, exactly in August 1999 at the Hungarian Reggae Camp I got the inspiration to become a selector. I didn’t have enough records to play in that time and I was an university student so I started to collect records. This part was a real challenge in Hungary in those days. Basically I was interested in all kind of Jamaican music just as ska, rocksteady, early reggae, rockers, roots, dub, dancehall. After university I used to live in Szekesfehervar, Hungary where I found myself a little cocktail bar to play. Next year I moved to Szeged where I started to play at bigger parties with my friends and we founded the first reggae sound system called Shashamane Sound. Since than I had several radio shows, played at many reggae parties and festivals in solo and as part of Shashamane Sound.
Currently I live in London and consider myself rather a collector than a selector. I often receive invitations to play when I’m visiting Hungary and never leave without spinning my favorite records each time I’m there.
