During this period he gained a huge amount of knowledge and experience while working alongside big name DJs, the likes of Ready-D and DJ Fresh, to name but a few. DJ Fresh says, “if you need to get a party started, then Milkshake is your man. He is a permanent guest (one of only a handful) on my radio show coz he really brings it. Whether commercial or straight up keeping it real Hip hop, Milkshake never lets up.” DJ Milkshake can be seen playing at some of the country’s leading social events and he has appeared on a number of radio and television shows over the last five years. His passion for music cultivated by his ambition to be the hottest entertainer on the block is what drives him to continue to perform at such a high level, successfully – “DJing is my passion outside of everything else,” he states.
