Traveling the world festival circuit as a child, Christy was exposed to all manner of weird and wonderful sounds. These early father/son trips have undoubtedly had a profound impact on the DJs digging preferences – favouring the tracks and artists of the global leftfield.

Now what was once his passion has quickly developed into a thriving career. As a selector he’s supported the likes of Joe Armon Jones, Kamaal Williams, Nu Guinea and more, playing anything from Japanese new wave to Brazilian psych.

As a business owner he runs Cafe Artum, a cafe, deli and record store that's become one of the most vibrant spots in Birmingham – a space full of ideas, lectures, unique in-store DJ sessions and workshops.
