DJ Hubble

Resident DJ

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. Got my first wobbly belt drives in ’95 and have been obsessively collecting vinyl since then. Now I mix on 1210s and a DDJ-RR, have an enviable collection, both vinyl and digital, and an empty bank account. Can be found mixing Old Skool Hardcore, Jungle and Drum n Bass at private parties, London bars and, of course, the only station that counts: OnlyOldSkoolRadio.com

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.

Resident DJ

I was signed for the legendary Bass Generator records a well known and well established record label and business based in the UK, but things didn’t work out, so currently looking for a new agent. I will be playing Oldskool Hardcore from 1990-1993 and then Hardcore Techno, Acid Techno, Gabba + various other forms of Hardcore.

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.

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
