Madhandz, born In the small town of Kettering in the United Kingdom was first introduced to hip-hop at the young age of 9 by an older cousin after hearing him playing a NWA album and from that moment was hooked (maybe it was the curse words at first but either way it was the start of a lifelong journey in music!!!). After a few years of trying to get as much of the music as I could and starting secondary school (high school) I was introduced to a DJ, who unbeknowst to me, was future exDMC UK champion DJ Skully who took my under his wing and after hearing what music I already owned and was into started to let me use his turntables to play my records and practice on. After much begging I got my first set of turntables that Christmas and started to put everything into DJing, they were a set of belt drives with a simple mixer but thats all I needed in terms of learning to beat match, mix and start basic scratches and beat juggles on. After a few months of practicing non stop I started making mixes for school friends and after a local promoter of a monthly hip hop night got one I got approached to do a monthly hip hop night in my home town, after doing this and getting more confident in every aspect of DJing I saved and saved and bought my Technics and mixer that could handle the whole turntablism (scratching & beat juggling) scene. This is when I really got my head down and really got focused on producing better mixes with a proper intro, blending and getting freestyles and shouts from local artists as well as honing my skills in terms of beat juggling and scratching. After about 2 years locked in my room I finally had the confidence to start entering DJ battles and entered DMC, ITF, SEMC and so forth. Going ahead a few years and after seeing my videos on youtube I was aksed to do some cuts on a track for someone and after I did I knew that this was my next direction musicaly and since then I've busy doing just that, I've had the chance to work with Matt Maddox, Just-1, Tha Soloist, Configa, Mark Deez, Absoulut Karnage, La Dog and many more artitsts just for the love of music.
