Demolition Mans involvement in music started at the tender age of seven. His mother worked night shifts so he stayed at their neighbor's house. Mr. Chandler was a music instructor and gave Demo free piano and drum lessons.At the age of nine Demo went on the South bank show with his school and sang the famous 'Musical Youth' song "pass the Dutchieâ¦" He then progressed on to studio time and recorded an audiocassette that was distributed to the local community.
In 1982 Demo and his family moved to Tottenham where his cousin's Tin - Tin, Syross and Terry -T were all musically inspired. He then went to Jamaica and found his musical enlightenment (on his fourth journey). Witnessing the residents of Jamaica enjoying a flavor of entertainment and listening to 'Studio one' sound system cassettes. Artists' such as Papa San, Lieutenant Stitchy, Daddy Wolf Man and Ricky Stereo were hot at that time. After this experience Demo began song writing and perfecting his craft in emcee-ing alongside his childhood friend, Tin-Tin. Under the name of Wayne Young, two brothers Jessie James and James Bond, they joined a sound called 'Nice and Easy'. Wayne developed as an emcee with 'Nice and Easy' for 12 months.
From 1983 - 1992 he was a part of the sound called 'In Ting Hi Fi' which was a big sound playing all over England. Demo also joined a youth sound called, 'Justice' consisting of the following members: Frisky Dan, Senior Ranks, Paro man, Muffin, C1, Boots, Diamond aka Syros, Big P, Cookie Selecta Yardie and Selecta Short-Quarter aka Shortie. 'Justice' became the new sound representing North London. "So I had the best of both worlds moving with elders as the youngest and moving with the teenagers, but as an elder with a lot of experience." says Demo.
In 1988 Demolition Man recorded his first tune, titled 'Don't touch it'. A collaboration with General Dan (Tin - Tin's elder brother) and Mike J. aka Million Dan for 'The Demon Boys' anthem called 'Recognition'. Then in 1989, Demo recorded his second tune, produced by Bikey Dred and Richie Davis aka Nicotine titled 'Pretty looking Gal' which came out on Power label. After Demo's second recording he started getting very acquainted with the studio. He began voicing numerous dub-plates with 'In Ting' and 'Justice' sounds.
In 1991, Demo went to Hartford, Connecticut to stay with his father for 3 months and one of his dad's friends had a record shop called Rocker Tone. After being introduced to the owner, Demo graced him with his skills. He then entered Demo into a MC contest without Demo's knowledge. He never intended to enter any form of contest whatsoever as he does not like to lose. To make a long story short, he won! There were sixteen contenders; one of the runners up who came second place is a well-known reggae artist today who goes by the name of, Chuck Fender. It enhanced Demo's confidence as a performer and he continued with 'Justice' and 'In Ting' leaving people with an impact whether at a stage show or blue dances.(another word for house parties)Demo's father called him in 1993 inviting him to Hartford to meet his friend who was the road manager of Shabba Ranks, Lady Patra and various other artists. His name was Byron Junior. Demo landed in the States in June 1993 and left a year later in June 1994. It was a great experience for Demo as he had never battled snowstorms that had him up to his knees in snow, but this gave him the vibe to build a new lyrical flow. He received a phone call from Byron who was in his office in New York, he was aware that Demo was eager to participate in a show with Lady Patra, Bounty Killer and asked Demo to show his skills over the phone to promoters and Shabba's manager (it took Demo 8 months to really make an impression on them which is a great testament to Demo's determination).
A series of events had occurred within his father's household earlier in the year. Demo fell asleep and burnt a hole in his dads chair, broke his dads watch, and broke a lamp, thus receiving the nickname Demolition Man. His father said that he was demolishing his house."I did not really take a liking to the name but you get the drift" exclaims Demo. He changed his name from Wayne Young to Demolition Man and Syross gave him the same advice to use the name Wayne Young when singing and Demolition Man when emcee-ing. On the 14th March, 1993 he left Hartford, Connecticut to encounter a three day tour to Washington DC, Boston Massachusetts and back to Hartford Connecticut with Bounty Killer, Lady Patra, Roundhead, Ninja Kid, and Bounty Killers band, "That was a dream come true for to me to be opening a show for Bounty Killer and Lady Patra."says Demo. The three songs that he performed created a frenzy at the shows. The hard to please crowd instantaneously related to his witty lyrics and style of emcee-ing. The great response gave Demo motivation to continue to do more stage shows.
It was June 1994, that Demo returned to England to find that jungle music was the "in thing" taking the UK by storm. Early 1995 Bikey Dred spoke to Demo, he wanted to remix 'Pretty Looking Gal' in a jungle style. Demo was not keen on that, as he felt he had developed as an artist lyrically. He said he would voice a track on the terms that he could decide the producer on the track. Demo then called on his cousin Terry -T, who had now started his own label Knowledge and Wisdom, of which Demo is a part of. Together they came up with a track called "Fire" which became a international hit charted at 33 in the National charts, and made the name Demolition Man take over from Wayne Young.
In late 1995 Demo met a rasta elder named Solo who took him under his wings. Between 1996 - 1998 Demolition Man embarked on a spiritual journey where he decided to become a Rasta practicing Rastafari livity. It was at this time where he started to develop as a producer and touring as an artist. Solo was greatly responsible for teaching Demo about production, he taught him to produce tracks on an Atari Cubase. He also taught him the meaning and importance of self discipline and the value of life. Through the ways of Rastafari, Demo's music was moulded into a style of his own.
In Late 2001 Demolition Man formed a crew called Dem Lott with Frisky Dan, Jodie, Cowboy Ranger, Militant X, Syross and Cabbie. They launched a tune called, 'Dem Lott's Here Now' on a garage production produced by Demo. They also put together a music video for a tune called, 'Weekend Inferno' which aired on Channel U in London, England. While working with Dem Lott, he continued to focus on his solo career as an artist. After building up a great reputation internationally, there was no time for Demo to put his aspiring career on hold. Nothing was a distraction and every project that he was involved in was a further motivation.
In 2003 he managed his own studio and started to compile his albums together working on singles, mixing, producing and mastering his own work. Working with other artists', voicing, recording and song writing. Basically being creative, "it was a drive style for me as I had no money, broken promises, people telling me this and that but I had to stay determined. Seeing UK artists come and go.. I still kept touring doing PA's with Vadim from the hip-hop circuit and Terry - T and Dj Souljah (Knowledge and Wisdom) on the jungle scene in Spain, Germany, Russia, Dublin, Norway, Sweden and Greece"says Demo. In the spring of that year Demo was introduced to Theatre Royal Stratford East, to teach young students music production towards their GCSE's. Then In April 2003, he was asked by Theatre Royal to take part in a hip -hop musical called 'Da Boyz' for one week. They extended the contract to eight weeks due to public demands.
In 2004 Demo moved to another premises where he constructed another studio. This time it was bigger and more sophisticated. He wanted to independently try to set up his own label. The studio was called Construction Unit and this allowed Demo to engineer, produce, co-produce, remix and also to cultivate some capital. The outcome was successful, various works were created there and it gave Demo the chance to truly get deeply rooted into his music. Working day and night, sometimes only leaving to go home to get refreshed, Demo and the studio became a oneness. After one vibration is another and Demo started to realize more and more, that time is of the essence. Now is the time to move forward in a different direction of life and he is taking this opportunity to show other parts of the world what he has to offer. Never forgetting where he came from, the time has arrived for Demolition Man to make a lasting impression in the minds' and hearts' of true music lovers' on an international scale. Music truly gives one the opportunity to spread positive messages and can break down barriers and eliminate negativity. Demolition Man's passion for the creation of music is everlasting. Whether it is at a peace concert, rave, stage show, charity event or at the studio... Demo's creativity, focus and determination could never be made dim nor fade away. Demolition Man's destiny is to make music. Of all love affairs, this is surely one that will last forever. Nothing can out this fire. Bless.
