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

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!!!!

Clear Cutz

Only Drum N Bass Admin

I started out in the rave scene back in 1990 and NYE 1991 saw me attend my first rave at the Eclipse Club, Coventry which changed my life forever!!
By 1993 I had started mixing and had some involvment in producing a track on 2EZ Recordings label. During the mid to late 1990s I was involved in the Gusto free parties in and around the Midlands area of the country. Sadly in 1997 I was burgled and, with the exception of my Happy Hardcore collection, I lost everything. By 1999 and now living in Brighton, with the help of some friends I started playing Drum & Bass at some of the local pubs and clubs including The Gladstone and No Man’s an Island.
The early 2000s saw me fall out of the scene for a considerable amount of time as a result of some personal life issues at the time and it wasn’t until 2015 when i joined the Facebook page “Long Live Beautifully Crafted Jungle” (LLBCJ) that i leapt back into the scene, purchasing my first set of Technic’s 1210 MK3D.

I joined Onlyoldskoolradio.com back in January 2017 and have progressed to having a weekly 2 hour show on Saturdays from 10pm and working alongside Steve Payne (Distur3d) and John “FlavRjay” Conlon in running Only Drum & Bass Wedesdays, the last three Wednesdays of each month.
On 31st August 2018 I can be heard playing at the first ever The Jungle_list presents Pressure in London. More information can be found here https://www.facebook.com/events/1050279428464747/
The main genres I play are Old Skool, 93 Darkness, both older and newer Drum & Bass as well as some Liquid D&B too. If you would like to book me for an event please contact me via my Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/clint.ryan.129.

DJ FLavRjay

Only Drum N Bass Admin
Originally from Dublin, now living in Co Louth, Ireland.

FLavRjay is a resident DJ with The Energy Collective Dublin, running a night called OldSkool FLavR’s focusing on all things OldSkool & Jungle/DnB.

FLavrjay started raving in 1992 in Dublin but had a strong passion for the early 90s UK Hardcore Rave scene and would religiously shop in the Abbey Mail Dublin buying OldSkool breaks or Hardcore mix tapes. The vinyl obsession started in 1994 and still continues to this day.

His preferred style of music is Jungle/D&B & OldSkool Rave/Hardcore, but he often takes a trip down memory lane spinning old skool house & techno witnessed at iconic nights such as The Asylum, Sides DC, Ormond Multimedia Centre, Columbia Mills and all the big Raves at the Point Depot and around Ireland in the early 90s.

FLavRjay got his first DJ’ing opportunity at the Purple Onion Night Club in Dame Street Dublin in 1996 and went on to play at various other venues such as the Da Club, McGraths, OMMC Dublin, before progressing to putting on nights in Drogheda, Co Louth from 1999. More recently he has enjoyed spinning his tunes in Switch, The Voodoo Lounge, Wiley Fox, Fibbers and TurksHead in Dublin. In 2016 FLavRjay was part of the EC DJ crew playing at Hotbox Gathering and Life Festival Ireland. FLavRjay played a Jungle set at The first Irish Official Outlook Party in Dublin 2017 and HotBox Gathering 2017.

He is dedicated to OldSkool vibes and is a strictly vinyl-only DJ

Deejay Endo

Resident DJ

I got into rave and hip hop around 1992/93 when I was 11, got my first turntables in 1996 when I was 14 and started playing out in and around Bristol in about 1999/00.

In 2004/5 I started studying turntablism and by 2010 was entering local DJ battles. In 2011 I was a semi finalist in the DMC UK battle for supremacy in London and had honour of performing, battling and being judged by the Xecutioners who have been a massive inspiration to me.

I have held residencies at a few Bristol D&B nights including Shoot the Freak and Intuition, and I’ve played at a fair few other nights over the years. I have held down numerous radio shows on several internet stations including Headrushdnb, OnlyOldSkool, DV8 Radio, Sensei FM and I am looking forward to my new show on After Dark Radio!

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.

Mr Anderson

Resident DJ

I’ve been DJ’ing since I was 17 and I love Hardcore, Rave, Drum and Bass and Trip Hop. I’m into Scratching and Turntablism and tried to style myself similar to DJ Hype who was a massive influence for me in the early days. I played on a lot of Pirate stations in the 90’s and have spun at some pretty good Raves all over the UK. I love my Darkside Hardcore and DNB and collect a lot of Vinyl from 1993. I’ve recently bought Serato but will never use CDJ’s as I love mixing and scratching on Technics. It’s more of a hobby now but I still love playing out when I can. All my mixes are live without the use of Synch Buttons or key mixing, Keep it real you crazy kids!

R-Hawk

Resident DJ
First and foremost I am into raving and I love playing jungle and D&B.
While living in Somerset in the mid 90’s I played at lots of random free parties.  I also had a regular slot at UFO Club at the Berkley Suite, Longleat between 1995-1996. The night was run by DJ Wink and had some big names on the same bill, like Grooverider, Jumping Jack Frost and Gachet. Whilst living in Sheffield 1996-2000, I played regularly at Corporation night club, with the Cooked Fish crew. In Bristol, I have played at various parties in Lakota, Thekla and TimBuk2, and put on small nights with friends.
From about 2001 I had a massive break from playing out to focus on family and work, but kept on collecting vinyl.
In the past few years I’ve got on internet radio, getting involved with Global DnB and now Only Old Skool Radio.  I am also an Admin for Facebook group The Jungle_List and will be playing at their 1st party on 31st August 2018.  It is a great time for the music right now and especially with social media making it easier to connect with people to share the love.
For me, it is the love of the music and the buzz of sharing it with other people that keeps me spinning tunes. I love playing hardcore, jungle and D&B from 92 right up to the present day in my sets.

Mark Patton

Resident DJ

Mark’s journey in music began in 1993 when he stumbled upon a Carl Cox tape whilst at a friend’s house and was instantly hooked. As the years went on the music progressed from break beat hardcore to UK hardcore, but he always felt that there was something missing. He always seemed to be searching for that something extra until he had his first experience of Hardcore Techno via a Dj Fergus tape. From then on, he was firmly focused on the genre. He was spending a lot of time with like-minded individuals, who even at an early age already had decks andwere mixing. After many months if not years of studying, he made the decision to start to try and master the art of mixing. He purchased his first set of Omnitronic belt drives and began to build up a collection of vinyl.

In 2009, he made a life decision to go and serve in the armed forces, which meant for the time being music and DJing had to take a back seat. After serving 5 years, he came out raring to go and instantly began mixing again in the digital era.

As DJ MPEP, he began playing a regular slot on radio show called Techno Tuesdays. He got his first break soon in 2014 when he was handed his debut at Oblivion Underground Events: Oblivion Underground. From there, he went from strength to strength performing at Soldiers of Core and Hell is Hard.” A residency at Oblivion Underground soon followed, where he performed at some of the largest events the UK had to offer.
In 2016, Mark made a very conscious decision, to follow a burning passion inside, this was Trance. He had already began learning the Piano and delving into Cubase. After 2 years of studying many forms of Trance, he felt ready to begin his journey in the melodic world of Trance. He set up a podcast show “Journey in Trance” which features a monthly episode, ranging across the entire BPM spectrum. Using his extensive mixing range, coupled with his 18 years of mixing experience, we’re excited to announce the dawn of a new era….Ladies and Gentlemen, we give you DJ Delectation.

I started mixing hip-hop in the early ’90s on my mate’s decks, but after realising I was rubbish at scratching turned my attention to the hardcore scene.

Now I mix on 1210s and a DDJ-RR, have an enviable collection, both vinyl and digital, and an empty bank account.
