MORE ABOUT PAVEMENT:-

Based in Birmingham.

House, Tech & Acid with moody tones of the Funk & Soul era.

After an upbringing around music through my family, i grew up with an interest in the DJ world, and began with a weekly slot at a local bar in my hometown, playing chilled House, Funk & Soul vibes. After recently moving to Birmingham, i am burying my roots into the thriving club industry of Digbeth, while occasionally throwing out Funk & Soul sets for friends events around the UK, the most recent of these being at ‘Sticky Mike’s’ in Brighton. Currently spinning two turntables through a 4 channel Traktor controller, this gives me the use of vinyl and digital for a broad yet refined style of play.

I am also a studying Visual Designer with an interest in texture and tone, and work predominantly with music artwork and club flyers – https://www.instagram.com/billyedwardscreate/

Time to say goodbye to DJ _ EMO and welcome new DJ _ Shemy ….. Why? Why? I’ve been an Emo for years, but I’m afraid I have nothing to do with Emo Style, so I need to change the name to better suit me

My career ended in 2004,
i think now its time for Re-Born as a DJ SHEMY
