Born and raised in London, Desyn was exposed to the acid house and rave movement in his teens and was a devoted regular at the legendary outdoor traveller raves around the UK at that time. By 1992 Desyn had seen and heard enough to know that his life, for the foreseeable future, would be ever committed to the raising of the human consciousness through music. From the raw, edgy energy of the traveller parties, to the flourishing Club scene all over the UK, Desyn took in all the scenes and frequented many diverse events covering sounds from early Balearic House, to the emergence of Hardcore and early Drum and Bass, the early Trance sounds of labels like EyeQ records, the soulful US Garage sound and the roots of Progressive House made famous by groups like Leftfield and Underworld.

His professional DJ career all began in 1999 with one mix CD that he took a considerable amount of time and love preparing, he sent it out to one hundred random people that requested the CD from a post on various Internet message boards. After a few months the CD had been passed all around the world and ended up on the laps of various promoters and DJs.

Desyn, although completely unknown at the time began to get International gig requests. From his first abroad gig in 2001 in Helsinki, to his chaotic schedule today, it all sparked off from that one mix CD. Once described by John Digweed as the man that never sleeps, it is a testament to Desyns hard work and ability to unearth original and undiscovered threads in the tapestry of house music that his peers recognize and respect.

Desyn has released numerous mix-cds on some of the most respected labels and brands including Yoshitoshi´s "In house we trust 3", Bedrock "OS1", and Balance "008", the latter credited as the no.1 album of 2005 by the UK dance magazine M8. Over the past decade he has continued to develop his two co-owned record labels Alternative Route and Sexonwax, and now brand new label Soulglow (with Rowan Blades). His productions with The Idiots 'Feel The Rush' and 'Keep it Real' (Sexonwax) were featured on Danny Howells' 24/7 Compilation and his first remix (Solar Plexus) on Deep Dish's Global Underground (025). Desyn has since appeared in the DJ mag top 100 poll for 3 consecutive years and more recently a new focus as he joins forces with lifetime friends Omid16B & Demi to create the DJ alliance, SOS.
