Presenting: Behind The Mirror
How did you become involved?
The mighty Renfield, Behind The Mirror’s fearless leader, brought both Old and I in to present a show together at the same time. As a DJ of many years, I’d built my craft at Sin club – before co-founding events like HEXX and Descent. But far beyond my dark gothic and industrial ties, my love for strange and unusual sounds hits right at the core ethos Behind The Mirror embodies. I am a pervert for music that causes a listener to think. And this obsession steadily grows unhealthier each day.
