B-Burg, began his musical career listening to jazz trying to pick apart the harmonies on his old acoustic guitar aged 12. With a double bass playing father and fortunate to have free access to a world class music department at his local Edinburgh comprehensive – Broughton High School, he had groove in the heart and couldn’t stop in the search for instrumental musical goodness!
He found jazz guitar, music production scratching and DJing to be his main ally in life and by age 20 thanks to long time friend and collaborator Ben Seal, was touring the UK as jazz guitarist for hiphop band Livesciences, supporting and playing on stage with Soul2Soul, Slum Village, Pharaoh Monche and many world hiphop legends along the way.
7 years down the line in 2009 after DJ residencies in Edinburgh for Ninja Tune’s Solid Steel club nights, countless house parties and some resort hopping alpine DJ tours, his next ventures turned to collaboration with filmmakers and videographers, producing film tv and short works along the way by pioneering independents such as Cutmedia, Foundlight and Fraser Croall.
Two seasons gigging and tour managing throughout The French Alps for ApresSkiBands, B-burg has returned to the old good times school once again, dropping funk, soul, disco and hiphop party gems for some of the best party spots on the planet.
Look out for contributions on forthcoming releases by MCs, vocalists and instrumentalists B-Burg has had the privilege to work with over the past 15 years.
