Event Details

Starting off his career as a DJ in the early nineties, DJing his first ever set on New Years Eve 1992 at Innersense at the Lazerdrome. He got the gig as his friend’s father was the head of security at the venue. 1992 saw him also play on Kool FM for the first time, guesting on The Weedkillers show. He would later on take over his childhood friend, DJ Buz’s show.

Swift Landed a Job at the now defunct Lucky Spin record shop. This was very helpful, as full access to the studio next door, with in house engineer Pete Parsons (aka Voyager) was part of the package. This became a valued learning ground for the inspired artist. After a few releases on various well known labels, his hunger grew and he set up his own labels Charge & Blade.

Also had a show on Kool FM, and it was after one of his shows that he acquired the “Mampi” part of his name after MC Navigator, Crazy Legs & MC Foxy started calling him it.
