Honing his skills on technics as a young Junglist in the Valleys of Wales in the late nineties, Walshy Selecta has become a firm fixture in his home town of Cardiff’s scene. Inspired by borrowed mix tapes and blown away by the tricks and techniques of DJ’s like Hype and Lipmaster Mark and Kenny Ken, he set about on his quest to become a DJ.
He helps to run the local Jungle night Uprise and has brought and played alongside many of his childhood heroes. Always one to help promote the local scene he loves, he plays out across the city regularly and has over the last few years notched up a fair few miles spinning across the UK.
He currently hosts the Uprise Jungle show on FM station Radio Cardiff and has been getting an amazing response from his show. Playing the freshest Reggae / Ragga Jungle, with a sprinkling of Rollers and a splash of jump up every Thursday to the Cardiff Massive.
He recently mixed his way to first place in the Junglist Network DJ Competition, beating over 150 other entrants with 2 mixes and a YouTube minimax. Voted for by the public and judged by the likes of Tobie from the Serial Killaz, Marvellous Cain, Dope Ammo, Uncle Dugs, he is clearly one to watch!
