Following on from my previous cooking video for DNB Muzik, they invited me back to talk a bit deeper about my history within this scene, how I got my foot in the door at Innovation, my Pressure Front club nights, my Direct Recordings label & what the future holds for me.
I hope you enjoy listening to my story as much as I enjoyed telling it….
Tonight I’m heading back to Peterborough for another Nu:Bass Generation drum and bass session at Solstice. The last party up there was crazy good (see the video below), hopefully tonights event is just as epic!
Artists playing include Majistrate, Subzero, Eksman, Basslayerz, Dreps, Tyke, Kanine, Rowney & Propz, MC Bellyman, AC MC and more.

With the label up & running again I thought it was time to get another batch of Direct Recordings t-shirts printed. As with everything I do it’s all about quality, these t-shirts are screen printed on heavy cotton, fitted shirts, with an exclusive design from my friend (and over enthusiastic drum & bass lover) ELKI.
You can get your t-shirt now exclusively from the Direct Recordings website. I’ll also throw in a couple of DJ Ollie stickers with every order cos I’m nice like that 😉
Me expertly modelling the t-shirt
The long bank holiday weekend kicks off this evening and I can’t wait to play some drum and bass down in Brighton. It’s been a while since I last played down there (I used to play there quite regularly). The venue for Sundays event is Coalition, a sick venue right on the seafront!
Fingers crossed the weather is nice all weekend as I’ll be down there all day Sunday to get myself in the party spirit!
Tickets available from the Innovation website
