Anthony John Culverwell, under his superhero pseudonym of DJ Switch, has conquered the world several times over with his scratching superpowers. Since he started moving records back & forth at the tender age of 11, he's claimed a holy trinity of DMC WORLD CHAMPION titles. And having proved himself as one of the finest turntablists on the planet, is now well on the way to establishing himself as a successful club DJ, festival favourite, party rocker & doing weird stuff that you don't see many DJs turning their hand to.
To date he's played in Africa, Bulgaria, China, Denmark, his homeland of England, France, Germany & many other countries which can't be listen in neat alphabetical order. Not to be confused with 'other Switch' (formerly of Major Lazer), this Switch defines himself through live performance & versatility, having shared the stage with a variety of new & old luminaries alike, from Professor Green to Public Enemy, DJ Fresh to Goldie, The Beatbox Collective to Craig Charles. Regular guest mixes for 1Xtra, Radio 1 & the BBC Asian Network followed his hallowed appearances on Blue Peter (yes, he has a badge!) and The Weakest Link (you won't be able to track that down!) And having played in clubs, conferences, cinemas, cricket matches & churches, any challenge is accepted.
Following his debuts at Glastonbury & Bestival in 2010, when he was given the closing show for both festivals, he's become a welcome regular on Chai Wallah's tour circuit. And perhaps the biggest audience reach Switch has yet had was when he performed Gabriel Prokofiev's "Concerto For Turntables & Orchestra" with the 100-strong National Youth Orchestra on the BBC Proms - becoming the first DJ to appear at the event in its' 115-year history.
Switch's sets typically encompass a number of genres - a base layer of electronica, hip hop, big beat, funk, swing, reggae, dubstep, drum & bass - but always tailored to suit the event. There will always be a few tantalising titbits of turntablist skill that will leave jaws hanging (imagine a gymnastics display put on fast forward).
Has never been part of Major Lazer.
