Brandon Block Net Worth

By Spear's

British club DJ Brandon Block’s net worth is currently under review.

Block was born on November 26, 1967 in London. Block’s career started out in 1985 at the John Lyon pub in Harrow, Middlesex.

How did Block rise to fame?

Block got his first club residency at ZigZag at the Broadway Boulevard in Ealing, west London in 1988. While working there, he met Dean Thatcher (best known as an organizer individual from techno/house act The Aloof) and began up his own particular night called Haven Stables, which kept running until 1991.
Has was also hosting at Up Yer Ronson in Leeds, FUBAR at the Milk Bar in London, Club For Life in London, and Scream in Plymouth. He has additionally played various different scenes, for example, the Ministry of Sound, Turnmills, Miss Moneypenny’s, Republica, Progress, Karanga and Colors as well as making a few appearances on BBC Radio 1’s Essential Mix.
Muzik magazine granted him the “Caner of the Year” prize three times.
In 1996, Block admitted to having a cocaine dependence which was costing him up to £2,000 every week. However, in 2009, Block consented to partake in an anti-drugs campaign for the government.
Amid detox, he was compelled to take six months off from the DJ circuit in 1996. As his wellbeing enhanced the next year, so did his fortunes.
In October 1997, he turned into a radio moderator close by his old companion Alex P, presenting a show on Kiss 100. Later, he had three singles released under his Blockster pseudonym – “Something Goin’ On”, “Grooveline” and “You Should Be..” –, all of which were discharged by Ministry of Sound. “You Should Be…” was a remix of “You Should Be Dancing” by the Bee Gees, and achieved number 3 in the UK Singles Chart in January 1999, and “Grooveline”, which vigorously inspected The Groove Line by Heatwave, achieved number 18 in July 1999.
He is well known for appearing on stage heavily intoxicated at the 2000 BRIT Awards.
In 2005, he showed up on the chat show Heads Up with Richard Herring to talk about his life, vocation, against Semitism, and his love for poker.
In September 2006, Block was on Five’s reality tv show Trust Me – I’m A Holiday Rep.
On 13 January 2007, Block showed up on The Weakest Link Music Extravaganza Edition. He was the second to be voted off.
Block also hosted a show alongside fellow DJ and friend Alex P on MTV Dance, where they toured Ibiza interviewing clubbers from around the island, and played the latest dance videos.
On 21 June 2012, Block featured as the entertainment for one of the guests on Channel 4’s Come Dine with Me.
On 3 January 2017, Block entered the Celebrity Big Brother house.
