He is one of the hardest working and most diverse DJs performing on the club scene today, with an ear for great music and sound technical ability. Morrell began his DJing career at the young age of 14 in his home town of Coventry, playing a variety of genres of house music, at clubs such as The Planet, Ikon, Crazy Daisy's and The Foundry. It was at these venues he began to work alongside the club scene DJing A List including Tall Paul, Judge Jules and Lisa Lashes.

He soon became a regular face at clubs such as Ministry of Sound (London), Progress (Derby), Judgement Sunday (Ibiza), Passion and Storm (Coalville). He has also performed for brands including Cream, Gatecrasher, Sundissential, Godskitchen, The Gallery and Polysexual.
