Biography

There are many DJ’s throughout the world with immense talent and an individual style, yet there are few like the UK’s very own DJ AMES.
Born in Rotherham, South Yorkshire back in 1983 it was not until DJ AMES reached the age of 18 he decided to try his hand at the craft of being a DJ. He started attending Music classes where local Kids could go to learn more about music techniques, the craft behind making a good track but best of all where they could learn the skills to become a DJ!
Within 3 month he had built a collection of vinyl any serious DJ would envy and had performed at local council run events in his area. Unfortunately within a year of DJ AMES using the facilities at the local Music classes the centre was closed down. This put him right back to where he started yet still with the ambition to succeed.
By 2005 the vinyl collection was firmly back out and AMES began mixing demo’s for his friends, created an account with myspace.com and the rest as they say is history.
By early 2006 DJ AMES had released his first CD titled “Raw Talent volume 1” the CD featured tracks from talented artists throughout the UK with a strong Hip Hop, Grime and R’n’B theme.
Over the year he used the resources available to him to his best advantage, gaining links within the Music industry in the UK and the USA. To date DJ AMES has worked with the likes of Flipmode Squad, Grand Hustle/P$C and has more than 100 mix-tape releases to his name. His Mix-tapes feature a varied blend of talented artists within the UK and the USA. With the genre’s including everything from the grittiest UK Grime to the Southern style American Hip Hop.
DJ AMES has endured trials and tribulations to build a name and a career as a DJ within Hip Hop and giving up has never been an option. Now an Official DJ for Fleet DJ’s and recently linked with Slip N Slide DJ’S along with the recent release of his second album “UK – USA We Ain’t Playin” featuring artists from both sides of the Atlantic 2008 looks set to be a very productive year.
