From an early age, Mr D’Arcy had a passion for music. He was educated, via his Mother and Father, in the delights of Rock & Roll from the 50’s and Swinging Pop from the 60’s. He was brought up with the camp tunes of the 70’s and later lapped up the party sounds of the 80’s. He would listen to his Mother’s native Maltese music, Greek, Spanish, French and Italian too, alongside his Father’s love of an Irish ditty. A true European even before it became fashionable!
Then, he came across his Mother’s “Eurovision Greatest Hits” album, circa 1969, with such gems as Volare, Boom-Bang-A-Bang and Puppet on a String. So, you can’t argue with us when you we say the man knows his stuff!
He adores music with a deep passion, as it makes him happy and let’s face it, especially recently, we all need a bit of happiness in our lives!
He started DJ back in the mid 90’s, first with 7” and 12” vinyl, cassette tape, CD and finally MP3. The equipment and formats may have change but the music certainly hasn’t.
