Love House Resident DJ's

John Weatherley

John’s DJ career dates back to the 1990s when following his first ever gig at Revenge he was snapped up by Brighton super club The Zap, holding a main residency from 1992 to 2000. Then later he was resident at The Honey Club from 1998 to 2002, playing hard house and trance to packed houses. He held a tri-monthly residency at Sunny Side Up, played at The Opera House, Lindford Film Studios, 414, Shark Bar, and for well known record labels including Nukleuz and Ministry of Sound. 

Hosting Hyper Active on Juice 107.2 for 3½ years and presenting Clubbed Up on Channel 5, John became a familiar face on the 90s rave music scene. During the day he managed Dance 2 Records and BPM Music in Brighton, feeding the cities DJ talent with their weekly fix. 

As one half of Hampshire and Weatherley John was the driving force behind numerous Trance and Hard House classics including Breathless and Heaven Can Wait. He’s also teamed up with Paul King to make some bangers on Tidy Trax. 

Retiring from DJ’ing in 2004 to go fishing, John came back to the decks last year to shockingly discover that vinyl had vanished (just kidding!). This didn’t stop him, and picking up his new controller he left his Hard House and Trance roots behind, discovered a love for house music and along with Laylah he started up the bi-monthly night at Shortts Bar that has become Love House Collective.


Laylah started playing house in 1996. Her music style is happy, anthemic and bouncy.

With many years experience of Djing in various venues in and out of the country. Not only does she display pure enjoyment behind the decks but crowd interaction and communication is top of the scale. Laylah is confident and unique in talent and character, receiving excellent feedback and crowd reaction wherever she goes. This fun loving yet professional character eagerly looks forward to doing what she does best – entertaining a crowd.

Alongside John Weatherley she helped start up the bi-monthly night at Shortts Bar that has become Love House Collective.

Paul King

Throughout his 30 years as both a producer and DJ, Paul King has been responsible for anthem after anthem and floor filler after floor filler. It was in the 90’s that Paul first burst onto the scene and was immediately taken under the wing of the late Tony de Vit, who instantly branded Paul “one to watch” for his fresh and innovative productions.

His label Electrotek saw him move his style to Electro and Tech House, and was instantly recognised as the new “Paul King Sound”. His remixes of Armand Van Heldans “New York City Beat” and Fedde Le Grande’s “Put Your Hands Up For Detroit” were released on their respective labels to wide acclaim.

Nature Boy

Nature Boy (Steve Buckland) started mixing in 1994, blending selected tunes, producing weekly soundtracks for his successful hairdressing salons in Oxford, In 2004 he opened a cafe bar in Thame Oxfordshire, obtained a late license and turned it into the towns first night club. Infamously know as "The Social " he was a regular on the decks with other local DJs and created an amazing venue with some unforgettable nights Now based on the south coast "Tribal, Latin, Afro house is my thang, I love scouring the planet for natural bass rhythms, real musicians playing real instruments blended with house beats, to me, makes the purest house music, a global sound that makes you want to move and groove. It gives me great pride and pleasure to share my sounds at Shortts in Brighton - Nature is my god .....God is my nature. 

Love House Regular Guests

Chris Hampshire

As a DJ, his career has mirrored that of his productions - eclectic and always one step ahead of the game. With over 20 years behind the decks,

he has played as far afield as Japan, South Africa and Australia together with regular European and UK dates. He has taken the famous ‘Recoverworld Live’ brand all over the world and regularly features as a guest mixer on various dance stations including “Recoverworld Radio” which has now been broadcasting for over 20 years

Pascal Ferrari

No-one knows where he really came from, but then few have actually enquired. Pascal Ferrari could be a former international playboy who became embroiled in an obsessive quest to find the perfect house beat, or he could be a fantastical creation from someone who really should know better. From parties amongst the magical golden sands of Newhaven, to seedy dive bars on the infamous East Grinstead Reeperbahn, his music has touched the lives of literally tens of people. With perfect selections, silky smooth skills and an occasionally cheery wave, he lights up any dancefloor he graces.

Bad Boy Ben

'Spunk', is the word that immediately comes to mind when people think of Bad Boy Ben. And 'balls'. Tech house full of spunk and balls that makes you want to grind your nether regions against a lamp post or maybe a chair, or possibly even go in the garden for a cigarette. 

Ben's DJ career stretches right back to the early days running the Recoverworld events with Chris Hampshire. They would both go missing together for days on end, but these days Ben does like to be in bed by 10pm at the very latest, so you're more likely to find him playing in the early evening and sipping Diet Coke so as to protect his svelte figure.
