DJ Palsy P is a Drum & Bass, House, Fidget and UK Garage DJ from Enfield, UK. When he was 3 years old, he was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy after his parents were concerned he was not sitting properly, was not trying to talk, or trying to walk. Growing up with a disability can be a challenging experience. He has proven that this isn't the case, he has achieved so much in his life, whether it is for himself or for his family.
In 2006 he begun his deejaying career, although he never thought that he could become a DJ, it took encouragement and hard work, but it took only one person to change all that, a humble guy called Jonathan, also known as ellaskins and the DJ Tutor. DJ Palsy P was one of his very first subscribers, even remembers his very first videos. Jonathan commented one one of DJ Palsy P's first ever mixes, and that very comment encouraged DJ Palsy P to continue to become "A Superstar DJ" (quoted from Jonathan) - and we can truly say that this has become true. DJ Palsy P met Jonathan at the BPM in 2008 and then again in 2009, which was long overdue.
As DJ Palsy P has a physical disability, he finds it hard to use his hands well, but, he can use his nose, this meant that to be a DJ he needed something that would help him achieve this. Searching the world wide web, he came across this site called Virtual DJ. He downloaded a trial version of the program and began practising. After a while, and countless amount of keyboard shortcuts defining within Virtual DJ, he began to improve. He has a Youtube channel, and thought that he would make a few mixes and upload them for some response. He had mostly good responses, so that encouraged him to continue his dream to continue to be a DJ. Not so long after, he decided to make a video to show people how he deejays, and to date, this video is DJ Palsy P's most viewed.
DJ Palsy P has inspired a lot of people over the years, this has showed many people that having a disability is not a obstacle, if these people have the determination and dedication to do what they desire to do, they can find a way to accomplish their dreams.
His greatest achievement to date - apart from passing his driving test - is designing and running his own internet radio station all by himself, Live4Vibez (R.I.P). To fit his style of deejaying, all the live shows he does are called "The Crazy Crossfader Show".
He would love to work as a mobile DJ, at parties, clubs, radio stations or internet radio, also to attend events and speeches. Give him an email!
He has just bought a Traktor Kontrol S3 controller thanks to donations.
DJ Palsy P could be
forced to quit streaming: So, his local council is building new homes. Due to this, the cabinet that gives his fibre
internet (80Mbit/20Mbit) will be decommissioned really soon (30 days as of 5th August 2021) as it is on land that is being built on.
He has waited years for decent internet, and in 2018 he learned fibre was coming to his area for 2019..
Now he is gutted that this is being
taken away from him, limiting what he does do with my connection. In essence, unless he can get a decent connection from alternative ways offered by his ISP (not dead certain), who say UP TO 80/20, he will have
to go back to ADSL speeds - ~8Mbit/0.65Mbit - yes, no joke...... If he does, he won't be able to stream again.
UPDATE 9th August 2021: His ISP has now said they'll offer him an "alternative" which they say "full-fibre", FTTP - seeing is believing though! As long as it costs no extra!
