Hello Junglists!

By DJ Epicentre, 2018-06-20

Hey all, new to the site, and been MP3 deejaying in Sheffield for the last year or so. I'm an old-skool vinyl deejay, and though I love my stash of records, I'm so excited to have literally thousands of classic 90's jungle and D&B tunes to drop as phat MP3's.

Be great to find out if anyone else on here is actively putting nights on in the region - I've dropped sets at Plot 22 and The Wormery, and really looking forward to killing it with a jump-up set on the Saturday night / Sunday morning of Tramlines weekend at the end of July 2018.

About DJ Epicentre (Sheffield)

I first heard Jungle in '93 on a very early LTJ Bukem mix - he was dropping hardcore tracks by Foul Play as well as seminal Jungle classics like Skanna's "This Way" and his own "Music" - and I was hooked!

I built a respectable vinyl collection of mid-90's jump up and techstep, but opportunities to play out in Sheffield were limited to a few slots at one-off events and parties, and I didn't get a sniff of the more established nights that emerged around the noughties in the city.

However, as Bizzy no doubt knows the strong and determined survive, and in 2017 I picked up on MP3 deejaying and for the last year or so have amassed a ridiculous collection of 90's jungle, jump-up, techstep D&B and turn of the millenium darkside bangers.

I'm stoked to play out, and beginning to get recognition from the small D&B community in the city for my high-tempo dancefloor-igniting selections and general breakbeat knowhow. It's awesome watching younger fan's heads explode when they hear tearing amen tracks over proper systems, and my mix-style of layered breaks with subtle use of filtering and FX seems to be fresh to ears jaded by years of commercial D&B.
