TIP019 Higgins

Since a young age, Higgins has always felt most comfortable hanging around record shops and looking for the latest music as with most DJ’s starting out. Using his ever growing record collection he began developing his own individual style and technique whilst travelling to endless club nights, handing out countless mix tapes to whoever and whomever would listen.

Eventually this paid off and Higgins finally began to make his mark on the dance scene that he loves and admires, playing at venues up and down the UK, being offered a well-deserved residence at ‘The Edge’ in Sheffield growing his technique alongside DJ’s such as Mickey Finn, Grooverider, Swan E, Hype & SS.

But there was something missing, he was ready for a challenge, a new direction. This direction was influenced by DJ’s and producers such as Brian Transeau, Blue Amazon, Paul Oakenfold but most of all the highly acclaimed 7 ways album by Paul Van Dyk.

Then came the introduction to Sasha, John Digweed, Danny Howells and Mark Santangelo Listening to their style and track selection he was hooked. He knew where he wanted to go.

Now playing at events in the Uk, Europe and the Far East he’s starting to get the recognition he has worked so hard for.

Favourite producers at the moment – Tale of us, Chaim, Gorge, Steve Bug, Neil Guigley, Alex Niggerman, Hot Since 82, Cybernalia, Deep Spelle, the list is endless.

Unique style, diverse and technically skilled he’s found his direction. Adding to his DJ-ing he’s beginning to work on his own material so look out for some quality releases by him very soon!!
