About Orignal Supa D:

Supa D started his DJing career at the tender age of just 14 while learning through his father who at the time was a DJ. One day still at the age of only 14 Supa and his friend Jammer were walking through Hackney Wick Market and came across a pair of decks and bought them for a mere £5. Since then many different types of music have been in his record selection from Jungle to Garage, Grime and Funky House. He started off DJing Jungle in 1995 and in 1997 crossed over playing UK Garage along with Jungle at the young age of only 16. He was on stations such as Magic 90.2 & Mission 90.6 and in 2002 Supa D joined De Ja Vu 92.3fm. He was on the station for nearly 5 years, and his shows were every Tuesday between the hours of 6-8pm and Thursday between 12-2pm. In 2003 Supa D started to see a change in the Garage scene and also the music, and he wasnt really feeling it anymore. He dabbled in the new Garage Scene which is now known to many as Grime Music but decided in 2003/04 that he wasnt really feeling it anymore. Through working at a local record shop, he started to enjoy the sounds of certain house flavours and eventually in that same year decided to cross over to playing funky and soulful house. It was this year that Supa D kept hearing of another 2 Djs called Supa D so he decided to call himself the Original Supa D which is a name that many people know him as now. Since he left school at 16 his love and determination has taken many avenues for him to fulfill his hobby. He worked for Wired for Sound Record shop in Hackney every week on a Friday and was there for 8 years. He described this as more of a hobby than a job and the bonus was that he was getting paid for it along with getting records at discounted rates plus knowing what was hot and new in all types of music genres. Over the years his DJing has taken him on a journey to clubs all over London and abroad. Top club nights that he has played for are the likes of Pssst, Red Carpet, La Cosa Nostra, Back 2 95, Sophisticated, Funky Feva, Hey Sexy, Cocktail, Soul Deep, Jamm Rock, Paradise, Old Skool Sundays, Pure Vibez plus many more. He has already graced the shores on countries such as the Miami Winter Music Festival in the USA, Denmark, Paris(with Spidey g) and Amsterdam. This summer the bookings are coming in thick and fast and not only will Supa be DJing at clubs/venues all over London but he is also in constant demand for bookings abroad. Already confirmed are dates from; La Cosa Nostra @ Club Abyss in Ayia napa in August, Funky Thursdays @ Club AM in Malia(Crete) in July and August and The Dejam Festival in Antigua in October.

Supa D also co promotes his own events/club nights and is responsible for road block events such as; Dont be Shy, Deep Throat, House of Garage, Funky Love & Casa Funk. Coming up to date with things.
