Having been introduced to DJ’ing at the early age of 17 by a college friend, Randall’s head was turned by Acid House for the first time at 1987’s Notting Hill Carnival. From there on he was hooked, spending his money on vinyl and listening to the likes of Rhythm Doctor, Rob Atkinson, Lindon C, and Mr. C, all members of the legendary ‘Hypnosis’ crew. Randall found that mixing came naturally to him, learning the basics in only a week but he pushed himself to hone his own style, refining his skills by making weekly mix-tapes. One of those tapes did the rounds, resulting in a chance to play at the ‘Delirium’ crew’s warehouse parties in Stratford, London. He quickly began to get noticed, leading to a spot on the legendary East London pirate radio station, Centreforce in ’89.
Over the years, his reputation has helped him forge close links with a number of major record labels and artists, especially Reinforced and Goldie’s Metalheadz, ensuring that he was one of the first DJs to gain access to their highly-prized dubplates for testing the crowds. His moves into production, while only occasional have also been memorable, providing the classic ‘The R’ for Reinforced Enforcers series also linking up with Andy C for the ‘Sound Control’ on Ram Records. He is also no stranger to the business side of running a record label, holding the reins at Mac II Recordings and Stepback Sessions, the latter in particular exhibiting the respect he has garnered within the scene compiling brand new remixes of legendary tracks from the likes of 4 Hero, Omni Trio & Doc Scott too name but a few.
It’s as a DJ that he is best known. Aside from his live performances, Randall has been commissioned by Mixmag, Drum & Bass Arena, Dreamscape, Ministry of Sound/AWOL, and many others for studio mixes. With his fluid style and a career that has taken him all over the globe from the UK throughout Europe, the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand & Asia. Randall’s ability to move with the times and reflect on what is going on around him has ensured that his talents continue to be heavily in demand today.
