Meet our Djs

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

Ju Drops

Resident DJ

I’ve been raving since the late 80s – the 1880s!! My first club night was at Dungeons, where I fell in love with the music & the people,  I still go out raving now – putting the Old into Old Skool!!  Back in the day, I loved Oakenfold, Emerson, Dean Thatcher, Fabio & I still love Justin Robertson.  I try to create the atmosphere of the early days through my residencies on stations like RadioactiveFM, Rokagroove Radio and Only Old Skool Radio playing Old Skool House, Tribal and Techno – Raver til I die!!!

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 also hosts radio shows: on UDMI Radio presenting the OldSkool FLavR’s, Phever Radio Dublin presenting BreakBeat FLavR every second Thursday 22.00-00.00 GMT, a monthly on After Dark Radio, last Saturday of the month called Speaker Box 22.00-00.00 GMT, Only Drum ‘n’ Bass and also a regular on OnlyOldSkool Radio.

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

DJ Helix

Resident DJ

I started DJing after getting a set of 1210’s way back in 1992 after going to clubs such as Sterns. Since then I have been playing a whole range of genres like, Oldskool, DnB, Hardcore, Jungle, Trance and House.  You’ll normally find me playing at 10pm each week on the Techno Tuesday night.

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!!!!
