A DJ from Winyates is preparing his playlist for a set on the Charlie Sloth show next week.
Chris Hunt, who goes by the name of DJ First Born, will appear on Sloth’s BBC Radio 1xtra gig next Friday (July 31) between 6.00pm and 7.00pm.
The 30-year-old, who attended Arrow Vale High School, has manned the decks on 1xtra before along with performing alongside some of the world’s biggest DJ’s such as DJ Jazzy Jeff and Grandmaster Flash.
“I’m looking forward to hearing my name on national radio again,” Chris said. “It’s things like this that make all those years of practising in my bedroom worth it”.
After starting to learn how to DJ in 1999, Chris has gone from strength to strength, turning professional in 2009 and has since played all over the UK, in Zurich and in Marbella.
“I don’t specialise in one genre,” he added. “I specialise in making people dance.
“I’m mainly known as a hip hop DJ as that is the music I love but I play all kinds of music – as long as it’s good.”
