Early years

In his early years, being inspired by underground techno, he released a series of vinyl records under various pseudonyms (only one using his real name). He performed live acid techno sets at underground parties such as Acid Rain at Amsterdam Graansilo. During the recording sessions for one of the tracks he produced for ex Soul II Soul and The Shamen singer Victoria Wilson James’s album on Sony Music, it was suggested that he audition for the “De Bende van Venlo” a theatre piece based on a true crime story. He was cast in one of the lead roles and performed over thirty European shows.

Los Angeles

After the theatre experience, Universal / Island Records won the label-bidding and signed him as an artist and producer. He released one single and one video before he left the label due to creative differences and moved from London to Los Angeles to work on his art, film, photography and editing career. He took a break from that to release the track LA Mellow (as D’ray), a collaboration with Dutch Dj, producer Gregor Salto. Ultimate Miami 2, the album with LA Mellow and music by artists like Wiwek, Chocolate Puma and Sidney Samson reached #6 at Beatport’s House top 100.[10] In late 2015, he finished working as the visual supervisor of a documentary about Russian director Andrei Tarkovsky based on his diaries Time within Time, starring Tonino Guerra. In 2016, he released two EPs (as 0010×0010 and T3TSUO 303) on his Generation Acid label which both landed in the Beatport Techno Top 100 charts.

Mobile Dogwash

It was 1997 when Mobile Dogwash starting producing Acid Techno in his hometown of Sheffield.
Not satisfied with the trappings of his studio, he soon earned himself a resident slot at the legendary Headcharge, the club responsible for playing the north’s most banging techno.
Mobile Dogwash honed his sound, his ears never far away from a speaker with London techno pouring from it. Six years after the project started, he collaborated with The Pranksterz, earning him his first release on Acid Test.
Since then, Mobile Dogwash has had releases on some of techno’s most reputable labels. Abusive 303, Acid Test, Acid Test Remix, Brain Gravy, Chase Yer Tail, Cluster, Corrosive, DIP, Injector, Scythe Squadron, Stay Up Forever Remix & Stay Up Forever have all put out his work, with Chase Yer Tail, Interstate One, Project 303 and Wah Wah all following suit in the coming months.
Not the lone star that some DJs tend to be, Mobile Dogwash has regular company in the studio in varying forms; Ron Atomizer (who was a part of and helped develop the sound of Mobile Dogwash in the earlier days), Dave Atomizer (Twisted Tyrants), Si McLean (Acid Kazuals), Pablo Sonic Terrorist (Orgy of Distortion), Fabulous 23s and OB1, plus future collaborations planned with Steve Mills, Tassid and Tik Tok.
Recently he has been back in the studio with Dynamic Intervention (results out soon on Chase Yer Tail) and has just returned from banging out some ‘avin’ it sounds with London Acid Techno legend The Geezer (two tracks due out soon on Wah Wah).
Mobile Dogwash rocks the dance floor with his fat rolling hard acid sound and plays regularly across the width and breadth of UK and abroad. Highlights of Mobile Dogwash’s last year include playing at Boomtown Festival (Acidic/Raveyard) and across the sea in Ireland (Transformer Sounds).
This year looks set to be no less special with forthcoming gigs from Venezuela (Invasion 303) to London (Loud n Lairy) and Derby (Sounds of Wasps).
