|Greg Packer began dj-ing in the summer of 1989 whilst living in Northampton England. He began his career mixing hip hop but was also collecting early house and soul records. Greg then emigrated to Australia with his family shortly after and entered the West Australian dmc’s in 1991, winning that year and successfully defending his title in 1992. Greg started to dj in Perth nightclubs in 1990 mixing early house and techno with hip hop and early breaks.
Staying true to his beliefs Greg continued to push the sound of uk hardcore/breakbeat and saw it through the jungle / ragga /darkside / jump up era to the now sounds of drum & bass. Greg took time out in the mid 90’s to travel back to England and was fortunate to play at events such as ‘Dance Planet’ alongside prominent DJ’s such as Carl Cox & Slipmatt. He then returned to Perth where, over the next 7 years he collected numerous awards at the West Australian Dance Music Awards.
