His biography says: “After meeting Roger Sanchez in a Ibizian record shop in 2003 and having heard the beautiful rhythms of House Music it was then Tel Young found out what Genre of music made him be excited and it then went from a Hobby to a Passion that took over his life, which is inspired by fantastic artists like Erick Morillo, Roger Sanchez, Todd Terry and Mark Knight.”

According to his website he had set his sights on producing tracks and starting up his own record label as well as is launching his own digital record label this year.

A 20-year-old man who was driving the tractor has been arrested by police and is currently in custody.
