Designer, promoter, DJ, producer; there’s little – especially in terms of the music industry – that Pipes hasn’t had a crack at. A self-proclaimed ‘jack of all trades, master of none’, there are more than a few people who would disagree with the latter part of this label, especially in his native Sheffield where he’s hailed as one of the finest DJs around.

Pipes started out playing records in the late 80s and still plays out regularly, from guesting around the UK, to festival appearances at Glastonbury and further afield. Whilst a major driving force has been at the legendary Kabal night alongside other Sheffield heroes - Winston Hazel and Toddla T (both Sheffield music heroes).
