About Pimp My Decks
From humble beginnings, Pimp My Decks began as a business officially in 2004 (previously named the very boring ‘Technics Servicing and Customisation!). Our name was coined by a good friend in jest and has stuck with us ever since. We were (probably) the first company in the UK to offer full customisation and modifications to your beloved Technics turntables.
Such amazing machinery, style and durability, simply a masterclass in design and functionality! It’s no wonder there is so much love for the classic Technics 1200 1210 series.
All our work is treated with the highest quality of care. Nothing will leave our premises without being 100% perfect. Absolute dedication to perfection and nothing less!
We are able to offer repairs on most other DJ equipment including Pioneer DJ, Denon DJ, Allen & Heath and many more!
Hi, I’m Sam White. I began an interest in DJing at the age of 10/11 in 1991. Underground dance music really caught my ear and witnessed heavy queues for events where i grew up in Blackpool (UK). Something was happening and I wanted to be a part of it!
I worked all summer holidays to save up for my first set of decks. Despite all the companies in the back of DJ Mag recommending Technics, I thought some cheap alternatives would do the job… could there really be much difference? Yes, there could! In fact… everything! I struggled like hell with my belt drive Technics copy’s!
For my 14th birthday i was extremely lucky to receive a brand new pair of 1200 mk2’s. My mixing improved instantly and by the age of 16 (1996) i got my first club booking! I won a competition on local radio (Splash FM) against 30 other DJ’s at the age of 17. From then on I became a resident at Zone, a total dream come true and something i really looked up to!
I still have my residency with Zone (which had it’s 34th birthday in 2023!) and also at the very amazing Rejuvenation in Leeds.
I’m still currently playing out all across the UK and overseas – old habits die hard, will i ever grow up? Probably not 😉
