Between them they have over 25 years of DJing experience.
Jack AKA DJ Mystery
Jack better known as “DJ Mystery” took an interest in music from an early age and his love and passion for good music goes back many years and covers many different genres. Jack was born in London and it was here he had his first exposure to pirate radio, the DJ bug caught hold and at the age of 11 Jack was hooked.
Eventually due to relocation Jack moved to the Surrey area and at the age of 16 when the hardcore scene had arrived he got a break DJing on pirate radio stations “Radio Active” and “Energy FM”.
After playing on pirate radio, a promotions company contacted Jack and he was then booked to DJ at various nights, these included “Fusion”, “One Nation” and “Rhythm Station”.
Jack took a break from music for 6 years but came back to the scene in 2004 and landed a show on Guildford’s new legal radio station “Kane FM”. Since returning to professional DJing DJ Mystery hasn’t looked back.
Over the past few years DJ Mystery has performed regularly at various clubs and bars around the Surrey and Hampshire area with more recent work for events such as ‘SO? party’, ‘WOK club’, ‘Guilfest’, ‘Funky End’, ‘Pews’, ‘Envy’ and ‘Mambo’s’ to name a few!
In 2005 DJ Mystery and a clan of other DJ’s from the internet radio station “SSRadiouk.com” headed out to Ibiza, here DJ Mystery got to play at the legendary “Helter Skelter” old school night at ‘Club Eden’. Other work in Ibiza took DJ Mystery to ‘Hush Bar’, and the ‘Orange Corner Bar’ where both he and Wayne performed and streamed live to the world across the internet.
Wayne Altham also known several years ago as “DJ Reeflex” started DJing at the age of 15.
Wayne has always has a passion for music and ever since school age he and his friends had been experimented with DJing.
At just 15 years old Wayne met Jack whilst DJing on the pirate radio station “Energy FM”. Like Jack, Wayne managed to break through on pirate radio also, it appeared the two had something in common!
After a 4 year break in 2001 Wayne returned to the ” Funky House” scene in 2005 under his name “DJ Wayne Altham”.
In 2005 he landed a slot on legal radio station “SSRadiouk.com” his show named “The Cue Show”. The SSradio DJ’s regularly performed out and included their DJ’s in the line up. Both Jack and Wayne DJ’d with “Sublime Soul” and friends often, usually at Five and Lime bar. Wayne also ventured to Ibiza and played at “Hush Bar” and “Orange Corner” in 2005.
2007 saw a rise in interest in Wayne and Jacks DJing abilities. Jack was still playing at local clubs, and bars since his return to the scene, with Wayne occasionally accompanying Jack as they went back to back. It was around the same time as Jack and Wayne formed the djing duo ‘Groove Motion’ and since 2008 have had regular bookings most weekends around London / Surrey / Hampshire area.
September 2011 will see Groove Motion play a set at this years Vocal Booth Weekender in Mercia, Spain alongside the top Soulful and Funky House DJ’s in the industry.
Between them both Wayne and Jack have DJ’d with some big names, here are just a few:- DJ EZ, DJ Matt Jam Lamont, DJ Hype, LTJ Bukem, Nicky Black market, Slipmatt, Seduction, Orbital, Xpress 2, Stanton warriors, Grant Nelson, Andy Ward, CJ Mackintosh, Freestylers, Norman Jay, Freemasons, and DJ Swerve.
Wayne and Jack work very well together, you could put this down to the fact they have both been DJing for a number of years, or the fact they have a vast amount of experience between them. It could even be that they are just good friends. Either way, “Groove Motion” are the DJ duo to hear.
