Getting Arty With Bailey

April 8th, 2016  |  Posted by Bailey Intabeats  |  Filed under News

If a graffiti writer/painter contacts you asking if he/she can paint a portrait of you, what would you say? It’s precisely what happened to me recently. Frankly I’d have been an idiot and rude to say no as the asker was not only a fan of what I do but also a gifted artist who goes by the name of Charlie Buster from the talented Graffiti Kings outfit. The Graffiti Kings are a professional graffiti and street art team “Graffiti Artists For Hire” managed & owned by world renowned “London Graffiti ArtistDarren Cullen aka SER. After giving Charlie a firm “Yes!” he got to work. A couple of weeks later we met up at a local pub for the handing over of the the painting, the results of which you can see below. I’m might be being biased here but having checked other hand paintings by Charlie, I reckon this is the best one. Check them out for yourself by visiting his Intagram account here. Big respect Charlie.

R.I.P DJ Derek

March 12th, 2016  |  Posted by Bailey Intabeats  |  Filed under News

Many years ago on a night’s work DJing, I walked into Club 333 in London to play a set. I proceeded down a dark, narrow staircase to the room I was playing in. The thud of Reggae basslines pummelled my ear drums as I descended. I turned a corner and as the DJ stand came into sight I noticed a white, elderly gentleman sporting a shirt, tie and waistcoat behind the decks. He was holding a 1970’s microphone. Analysing the DJ equipment for my set as I approached, I saw two minidisk players resting on the turntable platters. Surely this man wasn’t the source of this reggae music! No sooner had I thought that then did he put the microphone to his mouth and started chanting to the crowd in patois I only usually hear from my family. This man WAS the DJ AND… he was killing it! It totally blew my mind. I played my set after him and left the venue romanced by the deep influence Reggae and black music as a whole has had on the world.

A year or so later I stumbled across a documentary on TV about a white ex accountant for Cadbury’s who one day decided to change his life and follow his passion of reggae, soul and blues music. I caught it halfway through but whilst watching noticed that the main character was the same elderly gentleman I came across at Club 333. He was called DJ Derek. The documentary spilled the details of his musical influence and deep involvement in the Bristol community. I was in awe.

The documentary is called DJ Derek’s “Sweet Memory Sounds”.

A few years later on the way home from a DJ gig, I couldn’t believe it when I spotted Derek on the same train platform as me. I had a little chat with him expressing my encounter with him in the past. We also talked about him retiring as a DJ for the second time. He told me he attempted to retire before when his bookings went through the roof, he couldn’t say no to the demand. I felt privileged that he’d taken time out to talk to me even posing for a photo (pictured above). He was a natural, sweet and unassuming man.

DJ Derek is an inspiration to all who pursue their dreams. You’re never too old, young, white, black or anything else to make it.

Rest in peace.
