DJ Carloss’ love of music started at 15 years old, listening to tape packs of Jungle music. It wasn’t long after that, he heard his first Garage tape and that’s when his passion for Garage took off.
He started doing house parties, then progressing on to having residencies at numerous clubs around Kingston including Options and Volts as well as many pubs.
It was in 1998 that Carloss’ first played on pirate radio and his passion for music led him to buying the record shop, A&D Sounds, Mitcham in 2000.
It was in 2001 that he first played on FLEX FM, with his show on Saturday mornings and was setting up transmitters with the team.
Carloss went on to starting his first pirate radio station, which then quickly expanded to owning numerous stations across London. By this point, he was well and truly hooked on pirate radio and there was no looking back.
In 2009, Carloss became joint owner of FLEX FM, alongside DJ Outlaw. It was then that his djing career catapulted as he teamed up with MC Tempo. Their hugely popular Anything Goes show on FLEX (which will be returning), led them to performing at all major events, clubs, boat parties both in the UK and abroad. In 2010, Carloss then took his hand to promoting. Events included Smartie Party, Fantazia, Its A London Thing, Old Skool House, Garage Nation, Sun City, Found, and Heritage to name but a few.
MC Nicky D then joined in 2011, making them a trio, otherwise known as ‘The 3 Amigos’, where they held a very successful show on Saturday evenings. It was from that their club night ‘We Like To Party’ was born.
Carloss was then fortunate enough to be invited by the International Radio Festival to attend with FLEX FM and perform 3 years in a row at their European events.
In 2016, after being the driving force and taking FLEX FM to a new high, he decided to move things forward and took the decision to apply for a legal Community Radio Licence, which he was awarded in 2017.
