Two decades have passed since I played at the original Metalheadz Sessions at Blue Note, London. It was unquestionably one of the outstanding weekly events in the history of Drum & Bass. Headed and owned by Goldie with myself as a resident DJ alongside Doc Scott, Grooverider, Randall, Kemistry, Storm, Marley Marl, Clarky, Ink, Loxy, Cleveland Watkiss and Justyce, these sessions were musically a turning point in the genre. Still a stalwart today, they called upon me to make an exclusive mix for their Soundcloud page ahead of the Metalheadz History Session at Phonox in London on the 4th of November 2015. I decided to do something a bit different to the broader set I’m playing on the night by solely dedicating this mix to music from a golden year in Drum & Bass – 1996. Full track list and event details are available on the Metalheadz Soundcloud.

Here’s another clip from my Ministry of Sound Radio Intabeats video archive. Veteran Bristol DJ Dazee takes the stand to give you a taste of what current day Jungle music is all about.
More to come…

I’ve had another dig into my Intabeats video archive from Ministry of Sound Radio and found another mix from you. This one is by LSB, an artist who himself will admit things started taking off for him after I aired his first track on BBC Radio 1Xtra. Nowadays you’ll find his name associated with iconic Drum & Bass labels such as Hospital, Metalheadz, Soul:R to name a few. Each time Need For Mirrors and I book him for Soul In Motion, you can hear the progression in his production and mixing. He gets better and better.
Apologies once again for the poor sound quality on this raw footage but as mentioned before in my previous post for the DJ Marky mix, it’s probably better this way. Piracy is rife these days.

Shockingly, I almost forgot that I’d filmed a lot of the DJ’s that guested on my weekly Intabeats radio show when I used to be on Ministry of Sound Radio . I thought it would be nice to let people see some of their favourite selectors up close and personal.
I’ll apologise in advance for the poor sound quality but having noticed the tracks being played have no radio drops covering them up, it’s probably better this way. People like to steal too much.
Here’s raw footage of DJ Marky in the mix for the Christmas show in 2013.

A day before and after the Sun And Bass Festival in Sardinia, A Sides and I host an (unofficial) pre party at La Posta, a small bar in San Teodoro town centre. With these get togethers what usually starts as a calm drink normally ends as a full on party ending in Rave classics such as ‘Your Love’ by the Prodigy. It’s always hella fun!
Here’s a live recording of the final night with A Sides and I back2back throwing down some of our favourites and anthems from Rock to House music.
