DRUM & BASS
Why did you choose your DJ name ?
DJ Biography / overview / Bit about yourself and how you got into Djing and where you have played:
My first job was in a record shop in Cardiff selling vinyl to the local djs in the early 90s. I got to know how the 1210s worked in the shop & did a few gigs in the evenings. I was mostly a raver & travelled the country to some of the big events like dreamscape, danceplanet & Helter-skelter. I got back into djing about 10 years ago & have been lucky enough to play at the same raves as legends DJ Sy, Ellis Dee, Easygroove, Ratty, Robbie Dee, DJ Force, Pilgrim, Rizzo plus more. I've been involved in promoting of events like THE BOX. I love playing underground rave music to anyone who wants to listen. I've played on Energy1058 for over 4 years. I try to be a bit different with my shows. I try to get the listeners/artists involved with the Request Show & Producers shows. I also try & do label specific shows & try to bring energy & hype to the live stream & rarely miss a show. I help out with energy1058 & it's great to be a part of a team that helps keep the music alive. Hardcore Will Never Die!
What or who are your influences to play what you play?
Easygroove is a massive influence for me as he mixes the styles. For me, it's all about having multiple genres under one roof & he captures that. Randall is such a wicked mixer & selector . DJ SY will always be number 1 for me, though, because of his scratching ability and tune selection. He mixed the light & the dark in 93 that blew my mind! Also scotty mann & kryptonn 😁
What other intrests or hobbies do you have apart from Energy1058?
Work/gym/walking/music/try to do the next right thing.
