There are many DJ’s throughout the world with immense talent and an individual style, yet there are few like the UK’s very own DJ AMES.
DJ Ames was born in Rotherham, South Yorkshire back in 1983. It was not until DJ AMES reached the age of 18 that he decided to try his hand at the craft of being a DJ.
He started attending Music classes where the local Kids could go to learn more about music techniques and the craft behind making a good song, but best of all where they could learn the skills to become a DJ!
Within 3 months he had built a collection of vinyl records any serious DJ would envy and had performed at various local council run events.
Unfortunately within a year of DJ AMES using the facilities the centre was closed down. This put him right back to where he started yet he still had the ambition to succeed.
By 2005 the vinyl collection was firmly back out and AMES began mixing demo’s for his friends, and mixing at party’s. He then created an Myspace account and the rest as they say, is history.
By early 2006 DJ AMES had released his first CD titled “Raw Talent volume 1” the CD featured tracks from talented artists throughout the UK with a strong Hip Hop, Grime and R’n’B theme.
Over the year he used the resources available to him to his best advantage, gaining many fans and friends within the Music industry in the UK and the US.
To date DJ AMES has worked with the likes of Flipmode Squad, Grand Hustle/P$C, Aphilliates Embassy ENT (AMG) and has more than 300+ mix-tape releases to his name.
His Mixtapes feature a varied blend of talented artists within the UK and the US. With the genre’s including everything from the grittiest UK Grime to the Southern style American Hip Hop.
DJ AMES has endured trials and tribulations to build a name, a brand and a career as a DJ within the Hip Hop industry and giving up has never been an option.
