JOHNATHAN LEWIS “ELLASKINS”
Started to DJ at the tender age of 8 with a small record player then at 13, I began to do all the 6 form discos at school.
I used to own an old school ghetto blaster with a twin cassette and would spend many a day mixing tracks, then i was lucky enough to buy an all in one Citronic console with two belt drive turn tables with a small know for the pitch control. I used this for well over 3 yrs till I had enough money to get the Technics SL1200mk2 . By this time I was 18 and already working for an agency based in Shrewsbury called Solid Gold.
In 1987 i worked at a holiday camp in Cornwall, then from 1987 to 1990 I worked all over Norway in night clubs, I also did a summer season in The Isle of Man. From 1990 to 1992 I toured Germany and even worked in Berlin. In between these gigs I would still be working as a mobile DJ at home covering all over the UK. From 1992 to 2000 I would be taking part in many raves and as well as playing I would have many of the old school TOP rave DJ’s use my kit and pa. In 1992 i also started a radio show on radio Ceredigion based in Aberystwyth and did this for close to 10 years, the show was called fat Beats FM and i played all styles of dance music, I used to on average get 30 plus 12″ every week sent!
After 2000 I managed to play in Las Vegas at the Riviera Hotel and as well as interviewing many celebrities inc Coolio!
Still to this Day I am on the road as a mobile DJ, I love my job and the joy of seeing people dancing with a smile on their face is a buzz!
