Known for his famous hook, 'We're loving it, loving it, loving it' Ivor Novella award winning MC DT is one of the UK Garage scenes pioneers. Exploiting his vocal talent from the tender age of 7, when he used to grab the mic at events such as Notting Hill Carnival and a selection of private and family functions (accompanied by his mum!) MC DT cites his inspirations as reggae stars such like Yellowman and Ninjaman. As MC DT got older he set up a sound system called Leo International with some of his secondary school friends, such was his popularity he was soon enticed over to a more established sound system called Stereo Mellow, where he applied his skill to reggae, soul and Hip Hop events all over the country. MC DT still does Carnival every year without fail.

His second to none reputation also won him guest slots with major players including Saxon, Coxson and King Tubby's who were resident at all major Carnival and festival events.
