His earliest experiences of MCing were on pirate radio in 1996; first Pressure FM (inactive), then on to currently active, once-pirate-but-no-longer station Rinse FM. In 2000, he met DJ Marky, DJ Patife and XRS Land, through being given a trial opportunity to perform at Movement, a weekly drum & bass event in London.
He is best known for providing vocals for two successful Drum & Bass tracks entitled "LK" by DJ Marky and XRS Land (released July 8, 2002 on V Recordings) and "Barcelona" by D. Kay and Epsilon (released Aug 11th 2003 on BC Authorised/BMG). These tracks achieved UK chart positions of #17 and #14 respectively. Videos for both tracks can be found on YouTube.
He was also part of the original line up for the London Elektricity LIVE band (alongside Andy Waterworth, Jungle Drummer, Lianne Carroll, Tim Landslide and Robert Owens), touring the country with them and featuring on the 'Live Gravy' DVD, filmed at the Jazz Café in October 2003 and released on Hospital Records. Further live exploits came in the form of 'CPF Live' - an act put together by Craggz and Parallel Forces to support their album release on Valve Recordings entitled 'Northern Soul'.
Presently Stamina still tours with Marky, and has also in recent times garnered an affiliation with Shy FX, performing with him and also being involved with projects on Digital Soundboy.
Outside of his extensive touring, Stamina is a moderator of the Drum and Bass Arena forums.
