I am so excited to be playing this summers Outbreak Festival on 23rd May at Castle Donington.
The event is taking place over 2 days & nights. I’ll be playing on the Saturday representing for Innovation against Formation Records as part of North meets South stage, some of you may remember North meets South 1 & 2 events which took part at Sanctuary in Milton Keynes back in the day?
As you can see the Saturday D&B line up is big, across the rest of the festival you have the likes of Gorgon City, Sven Vath, Roger Sanchez, DH EZ, Redlight, Artful Dodger & many more performing. Visit http://www.outbreakfestival.co.uk/ for full info & to book tickets.
Another great release on my Direct Recordings label came out earlier this month from my friend Ravager.
‘Steamfunk’ perfectly showcases Ravagers dark deeper side, squelchy basslines, chopped up vocals & bag loads of electronic funk drive this tech-step banger. An immense track that will steam roll any sound system into submission.
‘Edge of Space’ takes us into the upper atmosphere of the drum and bass soundscape, the melodic intro keeps you on edge as it builds into a crescendo of razor sharp beats, sub heavy b-lines and Ravagers trade mark synth manipulation.
Please ‘Follow’ the Direct Recordings Beatport page to stay up to date new releases on the label as & when they come.

Those of you that follow me on Instagram will know that I was away in Thailand in early January, as such I been a bit slack getting my first top 10 for this year up online.
There seems to be a lot of good music floating around at the minute, make sure you catch my Rough Tempo Radio show this Sunday, or at one of my live gigs this weekend to hear me playing through my 2015 selection. A nice varied batch of track in the chart this month, remember if you purchase the chart as a bundle & it works out cheaper than buying the tracks individually http://www.beatport.com/charts/dj-ollie-first-d-and-b-chart-of-2015/333608
