DJ Cameo

ArtForm: CityShowcase Act/Composer

DJ Cameo began his DJing career back in 1997 playing in local bars and clubs in West London. His main influences at that time were Tuff Jam, EZ and the Dreem Teem. He then landed on the set on London's Taste FM which allowed him to be heard on the UK underground music scene and to gain experience in working on a radio station. With success on Taste FM Cameo also featured on other pirate stations such as Delight FM, Ice FM and Lush Fm.

In October 2005 Cameo started his own label and worked with artists such as Jon E Cash, DaVinChe, Terror Danger, P-Jam, Dexplicit, Vital, Delinquent, TnT, J-Sweet, IMP, Jiggalo, Black Jack and Scandalous.

In early 2006, on behalf of 1Xtra and BBC Radio 3, Cameo hosted Urban Classic, a music event which brought urban street stars together with the BBC Symphony Orchestra for a performance at the Hackney Empire. Cameo has also appeared on the TV drama series Dubplate Drama.

Cameo has always prided himself on introducing fresh artists, mcs or singers and producers to the UK Urban music scene.

He is recognized by many as one of the only Dj’s who is always out there putting in the time and hard work in terms of finding, identifying, nurturing and breaking the new talent.  He has a strong belief in UK talent and will strive to any lengths to bring them to the forefront.

Since 2001 Cameo has been instrumental in showcasing and breaking artists such as Tinchy Stryder, Chipmunk, Crazy Cousins, Kano, Lethal B, SLK, Crazy Titch, J2K, Charley, Sadie, KT Pearl, D Double E  to name a few.
