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.

Freebass

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.

Oldskool till I die Oi Oi

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!!!

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.
