DJ Perry Carter

Aficionado of all things soulful and funky – Perry Carter combines the Old Skool with New Skool in his DJ sets inspired by the roots of Motown, RnB, Soul and Funk. His passion for DJing came a decade ago in the House Music scene where he soon found a love and desire to discover new music from around the globe. Gigging professionally now for seven years as well as absorbing musical knowledge from living on three continents has given Perry a unique style along with a touch of class in his sets.
