Before joining XFM, Temple-Morris was the main presenter on the MTV show Up for It Live, presented shows for Atlantic 252 & BBC Hereford & Worcester, co-presented the Pepsi Chart on Five, and Takeover TV on Channel 4.

He hosted The Remix on Friday nights from 10 pm till 2 am. The strapline for the show is "where dance rocks", and includes dance remixes of indie and rock hits, plus up and coming dance music of the dance rock crossover variety. Most weeks there is also a 30-minute mix from a guest DJ, producer or artist called the "Superchunk" and now "The All Time Top 10" where remixers create a 10-minute mix featuring the artist's favourite songs, this has become a competition with mixes featuring over 200 songs. The show, which was co-presented/produced by James Hyman (1999–2003) popularised the mashup genre, with a section called Bedroom Bedlam dedicated to unofficial bootleg remixes. Many established names in the mash up scene, including Go Home Productions, Freelance Hellraiser, and Osymyso, got some of their earliest plays on the Remix Show. [3] Also, Kasabian, 2ManyDJs, Simian Mobile Disco, Reverend And The Makers, Infadels, Plan B and Justice received their first ever air play on the show. His last show aired on 4 September 2015. [4]

Temple-Morris regularly DJs at rock, electro and indie crossover nights around the UK and Europe and has supported The Prodigy, Pendulum and Delays on their UK tours. His own night, The Remix All Nighter, a spin-off from the radio show, took place at London super-nightclub, Matter. Remix Night events occasionally take place elsewhere in the UK, and in Autumn 2006 Temple-Morris headlined a Remix Night UK tour.[ citation needed ]
