Born in Croyden, London Foxy’s main influences at an early age were very close to home. Seeing his cousins Thunder Banton and Rodney P performing at early gigs left an indelible imprint on him. These early performances from close family members coupled with a diverse cultural background in music hugely influenced his early development.

The bookings started coming in from all over the UK and he quickly went on to appear at all the major raves of the day; Dreamscape, Helter Skelter, One Nation, Accelerated Culture, Desire and Pure Science to name a few.
