View Full Version : (2005-12-14) MercuryRising w/ Kaizen & Steve James

December 12, 2005, 12:25:14 AM
would like to thank everyone for making the first year totally fun. all your comments and ears keep me chuggin along.

ringing in for Decembers guest mix is my friend Kaizen from Manchester. bringing forth a very tight progressive mix.
you guys are ensured satisfaction or kaizen will buy you two round trip tickets to hawaii. :p



Like most dj's starting out, the Vinyl addiction took over. Manchester based Kaizen began
developing his technique dj-ing for both friends and family.

Going to endless events handing out countless mix tapes. He mastered his style playing at
parties by request,

Playing at not only pubs but clubs, being offered a residency at 'The Edge' in Sheffield,
Building the skills to play along side djs such as Mickey Finn, , 007,brokie, and many more.....
But he felt there was a gap, something missing, a new direction?

He would tell you that 'the turning point came from Sasha and John Digweed, hearing their style and
track selection he was hooked. Following the influences of Brian Transeu, Blue Amazon but most of
all the highly acclaimed 7 ways album by Paul Van Dyke.

He has played at venues all over the UK, and Europe such as , Animal House, Nocturnal ,Twisted,
Electronique, And at the dance valley event in Holland in 2002.

favourte labels at the moment are - vapour,fade,choo choo,bedrock,underwater/pissed off ect/...

He is a winner who is going places!! Unique style, diverse and technically skilled he's found his
direction. Adding to his endless dj-ing he's beginning to work on his own material within the
progressive and techouse genres. so look out for some quality realeases by him very soon!! His aims
are high his ear for music is second to none and his dedication is always programmed at 110%


i'll be delivering the usual standard you've grown accustomed to, so stay tuned!!! :twisted::twisted::twisted:
