Spencer Parker is one of dance music's hidden talents - but this looks set to change.

With guest spots and residencies at some seriously prestigious UK clubs, Spencer's musical ethos is in demand.

Spencer has been djing for approximately 8 years. He began his dj career by playing warm up sets at revered clubs such as Venom, The House of Windsor, Maximum and The Gardening Club.

It wasn't long before Nick Holloway noticed his talents, inviting Spencer to become a resident at The Velvet Underground.

The club featured a weekly schedule of the world's foremost djs. From Fabio's Wednesday night set, to Carl Cox's Thursday night gig, Spencer's Saturday night residency proved to be a great training ground for his talents.

After a very successful three years Spencer felt the time was right to move on. He left The Velvet Room, as it was now called, and continued to maintain a hectic worldwide dj schedule, whilst continuing to work alongside the music industry.

Aside from his djing, Spencer has worked for established companies AM:PM Records, and Uptown Records, as well as holding the title of A&R Manager at both 3-5-2 Recordings and the legendary Defected Records.

Today, as well as djing, Spencer is currently working as a freelance A&R consultant, ensuring that his record box is always full of the latest tracks from the world's hottest talents.

Spencer continues to play worldwide. Having recently visited Shanghai, Hanzhou, New York, Miami, Dubai, Bahrain, Slovenia, Cork, Dublin and of course, Ibiza, where he was exclusive resident at Cafe Savannah, Bora Bora and El Divino every Sunday for Defected Records.

Spencer's style is best described in one word - UNIQUE!
