Respected worldwide for his releases on labels such as Metalheadz, Good Looking, Mo Wax and Universal Island to name but a few. His ability to produce at the highest levels and his excellence behind the decks is legendary. When he DJs, 4-minute mixes are the norm and the excitement that he generates describe Peshay perfectly. Always on the go, hyperactive, talkative and passionate. Whilst growing up, Peshay found himself listening to an assortment of music ranging from opera to electro. His love for the new house scene developing in the early 80’s made him decide that as far as making a living was concerned this was the path he wished to follow. Peshay left his job in the printing industry and decided to concentrate full time on his musical career. He bought a pair of Technics and started sending tapes out to promoters which led to his first break at Bass Box in April 91. He also went on to play for Genesis at Rollers Express, Fascination at Tasco Warehouse and both Dreamscape & Fantazia.
