After beginning his classical training at the age of 7, he completed formal training with a music degree from the University of London; where the freedom of expression he found in jazz, funk and soul beckoned to him to leave behind the manuscript and metronome…   Now as an accomplished and very popular producer, artist, musician and engineer, along with over half a million productions sold, it’s fair to say our ‘Mr Keys’ has well and truly earned his stripes as one of Britain’s great dance music producers!
