Some years ago, aged 16, Costello found himself fall in love with a pair of Technics decks and just a few house vinyl's. This love of dance music and mixing led to a new obsession, which has spawned one of Birmingham's most promising DJ's.
Ever eager and enthusiastic, Costello found himself working in a DJ record shop which gave him a wide knowledge and taste for all good music. Starting with US vocal and funky house, he soon moved forward into playing a dirtier style of house grooves.
Playing for various nights and clubs in Birmingham now and again just wasn't enough to satisfy his ever longing to entertain with the ability he knew he had. So the decision to venture to the white isle for a season came naturally! With the sole determination to make something of himself and make as many contacts as he could, whilst partying hard! Times were good! This adventure to Ibiza was more than just a party season as many say the venture has brought the young DJ out of his shell and helped make him the person he is now. Seeing massive success in playing numerous times at the Zoo project for Filth along with playing at Space, Es Paradise and various bars and boat parties.
After the close of the season and a return to England, Costello could now not just accept going back to live as it was before. A hunger and desire to do something in the music industry made him immediately start thinking of what to do next! Within half an hour of being back, a phone call to the Rainbow Warehouse led to Costello trying to persuade Lee McDonald, one of the club owners and one of the founders of Below, to let him run a night at the Warehouse. Half an hour later he was at the club being shown around and next thing you know, thanks to all his energy, enthusiasm and Ibiza spirit, Costello was offered a start! A chance to Host one of the small rooms at a Below event. Up2nogood was born! A chance to get people to listen to the music he loved!
Up2nogood is now thriving after a year and continues to be led by Costello to set the standard
An excellent judge of the finest tech house and techno, has seen Costello play all over the country in Leeds, London, Manchester and Birmingham. The success of up2nogood emulates how well Costello is doing and is making a huge impact on the clubbing scene.
With loads in the pipeline and "failure is not an option" approach to everything, excellent mixes with real design to them and an attitude that only the best will do, he is definitely one DJ to watch!
