Devvo has been a DJ for more than 12 years, breaking onto the club scene as soon as he turned 18. with an undeniable love for hip hop and all things urban he soon established himself as one of his home towns best club Dj’s.
It started from a hobby street skating around the town with a group of mates and a boom box listening to the likes of Dr Dre, Eminem, LL Cool J, NWA, Wu Tang, Dead Prez and Exibit and turned into a constant chore for his parents and neighbours when he got his first set of Gemini belt driven decks and battle mixer aged 12.
It continued from there as he collected a large collection of records and started to listen to some of the UK’s biggest Dj’s on the radio.
