Les Croasdaile Intro:
Born and bred in Manchester all his life, Les Croasdaile
became interested in House music around the tender age of 13.
Les started his career with warm up gigs around Manchester City Centre with a friend named John Steward (now resident at Venus in the City). Spinning at venues like Iso-bar (now Club North), Bar Coast (now Prohibition) and some local bars helped his confidence as he considered any DJing experience to be worth it, no matter what the crowd or venue.
A friend named Phil 'Dunny' Duncalf brought a more vocal version of house to Les' attention. It was US Garage at the time which has now developed into deep soulful house. "Dunny and myself couldn't get enough of this sound in the late 90's..."
In September 2002 Les was invited to join the "Liquid" radio crew on ALL FM 96.9 in Manchester. Whilst working on the show he met, djed alongside and interviewed many of the UK's most influential house figures, with luminaries such as Steve Lawler
, 808 State
, Bobby Langley, Jon Dasilva
, Deep Dish
and Danny Howells
to name a few dropping by the studio to do a mix and interview.
In late 2003 Les moved on from radio to promoting events when he started Stylus. The first night was held one cold October evening at the Music Box on Manchester's busy Oxford Road. It was a massive success with over 500 people shaking their hips to the sounds of Les, Scott, Tom Wainwright and an impressive list of local up and coming DJs. This set the standard for the next couple of years, with himself and the Stylus team bringing the likes of Yousef
, Inland Knights
, Dj Heather
, Joey Youngman
, Ralph Lawson
, Chris Duckenfield
and many more to spin at the many busy nights they held at the Venue.
As well as promoting and spinning at Stylus les has played all over the UK at many top clubs such as Sankeys (Manchester), The Masque
(Liverpool), The Bomb (Nottingham), The Magnet
(Liverpool), The Loft (Preston), Electric Chair (Manchester), Rhythm Rooms (Hull), and more. Himself and Scott also donned their thermals and wooly hats in 2006 when they flew over to Norway to DJ in Oslo.
At the end of 2005 after two successful years at the music box, Stylus moved down the road to the more intimate surroundings of The Attic, where it has resided since, attracting a clued up, fun loving crowd who are all about the music.
