Woody, as he is fondly known, has in the past 10 years risen to be one of the main players on the Glasgow DJing circuit. Formerly a club PR, Woody is an avid clubber and it was his love of house music that motivated him to start playing and creating the music he so enjoyed partying to. Woody has been the main resident at some of Glasgow’s busiest weekly club nights which includes The legendary Liquid Cool Soundsystem which was Glasgow’s second longest running house night.
After a successful 2009, where he spent much of his summer midweek’s on the island of Ibiza, rocking the legendary Pukka Up boat parties and Es Paradis, 2010 has shaped up to be his best year yet!
Leading from the front at this time with his three main residencies, a feat few can equal in the cutthroat world of Glasgow clubbing, Woody returned from another successful series of gigs in Ibiza, with some fantastic sets (again) at the Pukka Up boat parties, Es Paradis and he DJ’d at the legendary Space 3 times over 2 years.
In addition to DJing at every main club in Glasgow, Woody has performed regularly at quite a few top venues in England too, DJing with some of dance music’s biggest names. DJs such as Yousef, Sensu, Simon Dunmore, DJ Spen, Mark Knight and Dennis Ferrer have been witness to the Woody magic, a who’s-who list that will grow extensively as Woody’s career continues to develop.
Late 2011 saw Woody having to take a back seat to dj’n due to illness but the offers for gigs still came rolling in. In late 2012 saw Woody take to the decks in the infamous Sub Club in Glasgow. More top events came along with another warm up set for Yousef and the biggest one of came when he went back to back with Glasgow dj Illyus in a warm up set for the one and only Pete Tong.
Now fully recovered from his illness and signed to Digital:Groove Records Woody has thrown himself into producing with Ableton as well as still playing gigs in the Glasgow and Edinburgh clubbing scene, Not to mention the upcoming seasons in Ibiza with some nice bookings.
Woody is also A&R Manager at Digital Groove Records, lending his eyes and ears for worldwide talent and picking the best music to release on the ever growing label. A role that he has really taken to heart and is enjoying watching the catalogue of great music getting bigger and bigger
The future holds so many things for Woody in both roles and you won’t have to look far to find him behind the decks somewhere near you.
