Bailey has been entrenched in drum & bass and jungle since the earliest chapters of the movement – his role on pirate station Energy FM, his residency with Metalheadz during its most era-defining Blue Note moments, his 10-year tenure at BBC Radio 1Xtra, Ministry Of Sound Radio, the list goes on – but most importantly he’s still right in the heart of the scene now. Resolute, inspired, and dedicated; he is one of the most consistent selectors and supporters of the genre in every possible direction.

As a broadcaster, he’s never been busier with regular shows on Kool FM and The BoAt Pod and allowing him to push the very best of new drum & bass and champion new talent across multiple platforms and territories. As a promoter, he’s the founder of Intabeats, an event brand dedicated to the true underground sound that’s renowned for its midweekly and unique inner-city locations. As a vibe-obsessed producer, he has developed a powerful line of releases on Metalheadz, Dispatch, C.I.A and Full Cycle. As a lecturer at Point Blank Music School and Middlesex University, he is fully committed to ensuring the movement is just as strong for the next generation, sharing his knowledge and insights in the same impassioned way he shares the sounds he loves as a DJ.

Above all, he is one of the most articulate, incisive, deepest-digging and industry-respected DJs in the game. Foundation-deep roots and reference points and a stash of dubs you’d sell your soul for, his sets are singular experiences that join the dots and weave the genre’s many substyles. It’s why Chase & Status booked him for their RTRN II Jungle launch, why he returns year-on-year to Sun And Bass to curate his own party, why Serato have endorsed him in their Legends series… And why he remains just as in demand, involved and influential as he was when he first became entrenched in the movement.
