Rocky started DJing in the mid 80s playing hip-hop, jazz, soul and funk. Hooked up with Diesel in 87 and did the first Rocky and Diesel gig in Barbarellas, West London on the 12th June 1988. They started to make music with Ashley Beedle in 92 and made the first X-Press 2 record, Muzik Express. A string of club hits followed also started Ballistic Brothers along with Beedle, Dave Hill and Uschi Classen, a kind of pre trip hop, jazzy breaks sort of project. In 2001 X-Press 2 wrote the album Muzikizum that included Lazy with David Byrne, that reached number 2 in the UK pop charts.
