Emerging from the tough DJ scene of his home town, Christchurch in the South Island of New Zealand, he entered the DMC and International Turntabilist Federation DJ competitions during 1999 - 2002. Meanwhile, promoting himself by playing different genres in diverse venues, established DJs noted that he is the one to watch.

In 2002, DJ Huntah moved to Brisbane (Gold Coast, Australia) where in the first 2 weeks competed at the Queensland DMC DJ competition as a complete unknown. Although he did not place, his skills were recognised and he quickly obtained two resident DJ positions. The first at The Embassy nite club (Brisbane), and the second at The Bourbon Bar (Gold Coast), quickly achieving a reputable profile before returning to New Zealand in may 2003.

In January 2004, DJ Huntah was offered a prime opportunity to continue applying his trade with a prominent restaurant and bar franchise, "Coyote" (http://www.facebook.com/l/7b6c8;www.coyotes.co.nz) - a name well known by patrons nationally and worldwide.

Variety is the key that DJ Huntah maintains within his sets, afterall, keeping the listener tuned in, creates momentum. With his ability to draw the audience into different levels of euphiora, alongside his unique style and sound, DJ Huntah although estblished as a top quality world class DJ 2010 will see him embark on a new journey to get him playing to more crowds arounds the country...
