DJ Shadowplay

Resident DJ

First came across the rave scene in his home town of Hertford in 1989 when played a tape from Sunrise FM by a mates older brother, and was hooked from then via pirate radio as was only 10 at the time! Started buying records in 1990 from various stores, but got serious in late 1991 when he got his first set of belt drive turntables and mixer.

By 1992 he was a regular at local Parliament Records, owned and run by Rob Haigh (Omni Trio) and got to know the other regulars such as 2 Bad Mice, Rhodesy, Nookie and a few of the more local pirate DJ’s at the time, and constantly locked all weekend to the pirates at the time- Weekend Rush, Defection, Kool, Pulse and local Mad FM to name a few.

Fast forward to the mid 90’s and the Technics 1210’s arrived, skills had been aquired and guest shows followed by regular shows on pirates such as Network FM, Perception, Rude and Impact started happening, and by the end of the 90’s he had appearances at numerous events- Jungle Warfare, Beatz and Club Innovation to name a few.

By 2003 Shadowplay had moved from his hometown to Brighton, opening a record shop there and establishing himself on the local scene playing at events like Sabotage, Carbon and Metalheadz, and pirates like Profile, Phonic and Codesouth- before he pretty much retired from the scene in 2007 after closing down the shop to concentrate on raising his young family.

Again, fast forward to 2015, and good friend and up-coming producer Vital Link persuaded DJ Shadowplay to put in a guest appearence on his radio show playing old skool jungle, and again the bug hit, spurring him to come out of retirement and start his own show playing old skool on onlyoldskoolradio.com every Friday and Saturday. 2016 saw a family holiday turn into a chance semi-tour of spain, and an equally chance phone call with Mark X from Kemet Records led to Shadowplay being drawn back into the new jungle scene again fully, and leading to his first vinyl release when he collaborated with Vital Link on ‘The New Dawn EP’ (Kemet). Now involved with Infrared Records, you can catch Shadowplay every Friday and Saturday on radio, as well as upcoming events.

First of, let’s make it clear, I’m not a DJ, will never be a DJ but I quite enjoy pretending to be one sometimes, and only sometimes!!! I joined Onlyoldskoolradio.com as a regular in the chatroom back in 2012, eventually my mithering (for southerners read pestering) paid off and I was promoted initially to chatroom moderator in I think 2016 before being made radio administrator when the current management took over and they realised I was indispensable!!!!

Started DJing way back in 1991 15th Birthday but was buying Vinyl long before that. First couple of Vinyl I brought was in 1988/89, Stevie V – Dirty Cash & Richie Rich Salsa House, still to this day big favourites of mine. 

My DJ influences throughout the years have been Robert King (School friend) who taught me how to scratch and we spent most of our teenage years in Black Market Records spending money we didn’t have. Other influences such as LTJ Bukem & Karl “Tuff Enough” Brown both of which had similar mixing styles but totally different genres.

Been a member of Only Old Skool Radio for around 5 years, on and off and you can catch me playing most weekends.

Peace & Love to all

DJ Cheese

Head Honcho

First got into dance music when I bought my first 12” in 1983 which was hey you by the rocksteady crew and continued through the 80’s listening to electro and hip hop,got into house music in ‘89 when listening to Dj 279’s hip hop show on dance fm when he dropped depth charge and that was it I was hooked,listening to pirate radio stations like fantasy fm,Rave fm,Pulse fm and Defection Fm.

I was inspired by people like DJ Hype, DJ Eclipse, Mixmastermax ,spent years trying to hone my scratching & mixing,so you’ll catch me playing anything from electro,hip hop,Acid,88’89’90’ house music and early hardcore up until late 1992
