Sloth is a stage name in that his DJ scratch style is quite slow. His career began in 2007 after he won "Most Original Video" at the CraveFest awards Canada for music video, "Guided Tour of Camden".
Sloth is a DJ on BBC Radio 1, presenting The Rap Show, and a presenter on the weekday drivetime BBC Radio 1Xtra show. His trademark segment on both BBC shows, Fire in the Booth, is "regarded as a real mark of prestige in the scene, especially for newcomers" with MCs from grime and hip-hop coming into the studio to freestyle. Akala, Avelino, Devlin, Professor Green, K Koke, Lowkey, Bugzy Malone, Big Narstie, Tinie Tempah, Wretch 32 and others have performed on Fire in the Booth.
Sloth is also a TV presenter and has presented Channel 4's House Party series, plus other shows on BBC One, BBC Three and online. He founded record label Grimey Limey, which was instrumental to the careers of Bugzy Malone and Potter Payper. Bugzy's Walk with Me EP peaked at number 8 on the UK Albums Chart.
Sloth was prominent on London pirate radio stations such as RawFM, Freek FM, Deja Vu FM and Raw Mission FM.
Sloth created 'Being Charlie Sloth' which was picked up by WorldStarHipHop.com. The show ran for 58 episodes, and every Monday, a new episode was made live and would be watched by millions of people.
He won 'Best Radio Show' at the 2012 & 2013 Urban Music Awards and was nominated for two Sony Radio Academy Awards for 'Best Entertainment Programme' and 'Music Personality of the Year' in 2013.
