The Boom Bap Nashville

From playing his first ever gig at the legendary Blue Monkey in Sunderland, over 20+ years ago, eXcel has become one of the music scene's True Legends. Self-taught from the age of just 16, his popularity soon grew and the passion and love for the music he not only played but produced, was heard every time he performed. From the beginning of his journey in the North East of England, it wouldn't be long before he would be performing in Ibiza.. and he did!! In 1994, eXcel appeared at E.D.E.N on The Prodigy Summer Tour.. that same year he also playing at Mayday in Germany for some 40,000 people, playing alongside Moby, Westbam and Carl Cox.

He returned to the Party Island of Ibiza again in 1998 to play at Amnesia and once again produced an outstanding set. The DJ'ing was not the only talent he eXcelled at.. In 1994 he produced and released his first major E.P - Cocaine. Born from his need to excite the crowd and bring into the Scene a new vibe with techno rifts & a bouncy bassline that still whips the crowds into a frenzy every time.. eXcel wowed Radio audiences in the North East @ Wear FM, where he produced / formatted his own specialist 3 hour Dance Music show and did this successfully for 2 years.

Then @ 7 FM, again producing / formatting his personalised specialist 4 hour Dance Music show for 3 years... where listening figures soared. eXcel has the ability and true talent that simply takes your breath away.. his mixing skills amaze and have earnt him the respect of his fellow DJ's the likes of Carl Cox, Stu Allen, Kenny Sharp and the people who really matter.. the crowds and fans that attend the events up & down the country - Uprising, Dizstruxshon, Dekadance, Rave Ja Vu, R-House... to name but a few!

If the current explosion of nightlife has revealed anything, it’s that some DJs move tickets and other DJs move bodies, and it is frequently the latter who is called upon in the most crucial of situations. DJ Excel is one of the few who has proven himself time and time again in both said capacities.

Drawing upon the rich musical heritage of his Philadelphia upbringing and a cultivated influence from the numerous DJ pioneers that Philly birthed into the culture, it’s no surprise that the self taught DJ, who began his journey at age 11, has been a dance floor powerhouse in nightclubs around the world for 20 years.
