His music career is extremely varied, starting out as a Hip Hop DJ, progressing to an MC, producer, events promoter and a radio presenter. He has been referred to among his peers as the ‘renaissance man’.
He returned to DJing in 2003 and in the process secured guest slots at top clubs across the UK and Asia, playing alongside world premier House and Hip Hop DJs promoting his ‘Hot Yoga Music’ brand. He also provides his musical touch for celebrity event parties.
In 2008 Mr Nugget ventured into production, scoring major success with his first track “Free” featuring Brooke Bailey. He has since released further tracks with Natasha Watts and Amadar which have earned him respect from his peers in the House music industry.
A force to be reckoned with, we can expect a lot more from the man they call Mr Nugget.

‘Tell Me Something’ is a love song about the uncertainty of another’s feelings, an emotion which we can all identify with. Pete delivers the lines with meaning and conviction, his honeyed tones a perfect match for this groove. Mr Nugget’s outstanding original club mix has an enthralling soulful vibe combined with a pumping beat and smooth guitar that will certainly bring any dance floor to life. The release package also includes a variety of remixes: Montana & Stewart bring a classic house style with bold piano keys and a jacking beat, and Al Kent takes us on a journey in a sweet soul direction. David Anthony’s stylish jazzy groove has layers of backing vocals which instils a gospel feel, while Mind Street’s heavier dance groove takes us a bit deeper , leaving South African producer DJ SGZ to delight the crowd with his inventive samba afro beat. A great original track along with a sumptuous selection box of remixes from such talented producers leaves us all spoilt for choice.
