DJ Spidee, known offstage as Anthony Chambers, has established himself as an electrifying presence in the global music scene, celebrated for his versatility and dynamic performances. His journey in music crosses borders, having graced both grand and intimate stages worldwide with his pulsating mixes. Renowned for his mastery of CDJs and DJ controllers, Anthony doesn't just play music; he adapts it, moulding the soundscapes of the night to fit the vibe of his audience. This interactive style has cemented his status as a beloved entertainer, always eager to accommodate music requests and amplify the party atmosphere.
In the industry, DJ Spidee is recognised not just for his mixing prowess but also for his dedication to uplifting aspiring DJs—a kindness he was not afforded in his early days. His passion for mixing is infectious, and he uses his platform to inspire and encourage newcomers, offering guidance and hope. This nurturing spirit stems from his own humble beginnings. Though he learned to mix at 18 from the esteemed DJ Woodstock, who also mentored the renowned DJ and producer Mat Jam Lamont, DJ Spidee didn't fully embrace his turntable talents until a decade later. It was then he launched his own internet radio station, playtunes.co.uk, marking the true genesis of his career.
DJ Spidee's rise to popularity was meteoric. Within just two years of founding playtunes.co.uk, his unique sound and charismatic on-air persona had garnered a substantial following. This success led to an invitation to start a pirate radio station, Rush FM. Though the venture was promising, it faced competition from the established Raw FM, a local favourite that had been on the air for six years. However, in a testament to his talent and audience appeal, Anthony and his fellow Rush FM DJs were soon absorbed into Raw FM's line-up.
At Raw FM, DJ Spidee's career hit another crescendo. Partnering with DJ Blitz, the duo became a force that could 'tear down any house in the country'. Within just a year, his flair for engaging audiences and his skilful, energetic mixes earned him the title of the most popular DJ on Raw FM. DJ Spidee's journey underscores his tenacity and passion for music, highlighting how his early experiences shaped not only a successful career but also a platform from which to inspire and support others in the industry.
