Streaky began his career in the music industry as a professional DJ in the days of Acid House, specialising in Chillout and Balearic House, where demand for his sets took him abroad to countries such as Sweden, Ibiza and Spain.
As well as being a singer in a band, Streaky also started creating music in Cubase on his Atari, honing his talents for the finer points of music.
