Stav’s real interest in music began in 1975 (aged 14) when one night it was announced that no music would be played in his youth club’s music room, due to the regular guys being on holiday. An avid table tennis for his county at the time, ‘ping pong’ was all he ever thought about, until that fateful night…

Young Stavros offered his help by going home to retrieve a few personal tunes & upon return proceeded to ‘find’ himself. A little older &  wiser, local nightclub Sweeneys took him on board as a warm up & as he saw, was a master stroke, technically under age (over 18’s night) he maintained the position for 4 years gaining valuable experience & when the regular DJ left because of work commitments, he was asked to carry the night forward.

While @ Sweeneys he decided with the help of his mentor (Steve Scott aka Quasimodo) to become a mobile DJ. The year now was 1979 & soon radio came his way via local community station Radio Basildon on which he helped produce a few shows. Stints on hospital radio soon followed along with a guest spot on the now defunct Essex Radio & a show on pirate radio.

Stavros has played ’em all.. clubs, pubs, bars, weekenders, radio & he’s done more private functions than he cares to remember. But he’s loved every minute of it & still does, saying “it’s the greatest feeling in the world to see people on a dance floor making shapes to something your playing.”

40 years behind the decks & still spinning the good grooves, including his popular A To Zee of Soul podcast, as well as @ our little gathering in a big field once a year…

The man like Stavros… Who loves ya baby!
