Get Sub Focus songs and albums from:
From hearing one of his tracks for the first time inside a club in 2003 ('Strobe', rewound twice by Andy C at The End) to headlining Glastonbury in 2010 (Saturday night on the fabled Glade stage to a rapturous reception), Nick Douwma's rise through the ranks of underground jungle to become a major player in electronic music has been nothing short of spectacular. Initially known for air-punching, dancefloor dismantling drum & bass, Sub Focus has now become synonymous with music that draws from all corners of the electronic landscape, and has come to epitomise the 'anything goes' mantra of todays flourishing dance scene.
London born and bred, Douwma's rise into the furthest reaches of the dance music stratosphere began when he first encountered jungle, at high school in the mid-Nineties. A friend played him a cassette featuring General Levy's hit 'Incredible' and Douwma, at that point playing bass in a rock band, was completely taken under it's spell. Shortly after this first introduction, The Prodigy - who were beginning to meld rock and dance music in new and exciting ways - also became a massive influence and the young Sub Focus began to lose interest in his studies and started spending more and more time in his bedroom in Holloway, creating music.
His ascent turned onto a steep axis, when in 2003, he signed his first tunes to d&b's biggest label Ram Records, off the back of a CD:R handed to label boss Andy C by one of his friends whilst drunk. Despite this inauspicious introduction, so impressed was the legendary DJ by the music on it, he duly signed every track and invited Douwma to join the Ram family. Sub Focus' tunes - expansive, fiercely creative, but made with the scientific precision of a military warhead - immediately stood out from the crowd and were soon being rotated by every major DJ in the scene, garnering airplay on mainstream radio, and drawing fans from throughout the globe. Singles like 'Airplane', 'X-Ray' (which reached number 60 in the national charts) and an all-conquering remix of The Prodigy's 'Smack My Bitch Up' meant that by 2007, Douwma was one of the biggest names in drum & bass.
The next logical step was an album. But as he's shown throughout his short career already, Douwma wanted to push himself further and create something that was more encompassing than the often insular confines of drum & bass. Drawing on his love of all strains of dance music, from 80s synth pioneers Vangelis and Jean Michel Jarre, through dance leviathans The Chemical Brothers, to futuristic house and techno acts like Lindstrom and Matthew Dear, his eponymous debut album released in 2009 featured not only drum & bass but dubstep, old school breakbeat, bumping house and lashings of electro and rock, all brought together in a taut collection that could only have been made in the 21st century. It was an instant hit. The monstrous, Daft Punk-influenced album opener and first single 'Rock It' broke into the Top 40, with second single 'Could This Be Real' doing similar damage. The stunning 'Splash', featuring the vocals of Coco Sumner soon followed, and due to insatiable demand Douwma was called in to remix the likes of Deadmau5, Empire of the Sun and Dizzee Rascal by the end of 2009.
The walls and boundaries that once separated the different areas of dance music for so long have seemingly disappeared in the Noughties, destroyed by a new generation of clubbers and producers who are creating and consuming music in a completely different way. Sub Focus' sound is the perfect reflection of this, with all categories of electronic beats brought together into a luminous, cosmic melting pot. He recently co-wrote and produced the track 'Kickstarts' for UK solo artist Example, which peaked at number 3 in the national charts, and he has also transferred his debut album into a stunning live show, playing festivals throughout the world, joining Pendulum on tour, and in 2010 wowing the revellers at Glastonbury.
The unforgettable show on the Glade stage was in many ways a conclusion to the first chapter in Sub Focus' story. He has conquered drum & bass, created a ground-breaking, era-defining album, and has brought new school dance music further into the mainstream spotlight thanks to his unmissable live show. Douwma is already hard at work creating his sophomore long player, and given his track record thus far, it may well revolutionize dance music all over again. But then, would you expect anything less?

Get Hot Since 82 songs and albums from:
Daley Padley, also known as Hot Since 82 is a British DJ and house music producer currently based in Leeds, UK. He has been releasing music under the Hot Since 82 moniker since 2012. His music has been rapidly gaining in popularity, with Mixmag Magazine describing his progression in the house scene as "meteoric."
Padley grew up with three brothers and one sister, whose eclectic tastes in music he cites as inspiration for his diverse, difficult to categorise sound. His father refurbished old Volkswagen Beetles, often installing them with high-power sound systems, which Padley and his brother used to nurture their love for loud, bass-heavy music early on.
Padley entered the electronic music scene at a young age, beginning to frequent area nightclubs at the age of 14. His formal DJ education started at 17, playing 12–13-hour sets each Sunday at a club in his hometown (under his birth name). His residency soon became a top afterparty destination for clubbers in the area. As word got around, Padley's notoriety increased, resulting in a 2006 residency at Cream Ibiza in Amnesia under the banner of Leeds club Glasshouse.
Padley is a self-avowed romantic, and lover of romantic comedies.
Becoming Hot Since 82
In 2010, Padley was attending an Ibiza afterparty when the music suddenly cut out. He plugged his iPhone into the party's speakers, and incidentally, one of his works-in-progress came on. Though Padley had admittedly not made the track with the intent of releasing it, reactions at the party were roundly positive, causing him to contact his friend Danish DJ/Producer Noir, who runs the record label Noir Recordings. Noir was impressed, and released it on his label. 'Let It Ride' came out on Noir Music on 5 September 2011, hitting number three on Beatport's deep house chart. Thus, Hot Since 82 was born.
Rising out of relative obscurity, Padley has recently been featured in a variety of widely popular electronic music media. After a year of releasing his music, Padley was featured on Pete Tong's authoritative Essential Mix show on BBC Radio 1 in August 2013, playing a 2-hour exclusive set.
Soon after, Padley was commissioned for a remix of electronic music pioneer Green Velvet aka Curtis Jones' song 'Bigger than Prince.' The track was released in September 2013, and rose to the Number 1 position on Beatport's dance music charts.
He released his first full-length album, Little Black Book, in October 2013 on Moda Black Records, featuring collaborations with Joe T Vannelli and Thomas Gandey, as well as remixes of Rudimental and Shadow Child.
Padley launched his own imprint, Knee Deep in Sound, in 2014, on which he hopes to release music from up-and-coming artists with an underground "vinyl" sound.
Electronic music website Dancing Astronaut ranked Hot Since 82 at No. 7 on their list of Top 25 Techno & Deep House Producers of 2013.
In April 2014, Hot Since 82 was featured as Mixmag's cover story, with a recent mix of his featured as the magazine's 'cover mix.'
Padley has toured extensively in Europe and North America and has headlined many of the world's leading electronic music festivals, including Creamfields and WMC.

Get Maya Jane Coles songs and albums from:
Life has been changing quite dramatically for a 25 year old British-Japanese, producer/dj by the name of Maya Jane Coles and having recently released her biggest body of work to date; her debut album "Comfort" things look set to keep on changing...
Born and bred in London, by any standards Maya has enjoyed a rather unique start to her career; from global spectacles like playing under the World's largest mirror ball at the Tate Modern (UK) or charting internationally with her DJ Kicks mix for K7! to making the Resident Advisor top 10 DJ Chart 2011 & 2012.
In the last 24 months alone, Maya has already graced the cover of over 14 magazines in 8 different countries including Mixmag (UK), Village Voice (USA), Trax (France), Groove (Germany) and Vicious (Spain), alongside coverage in magazine's as diverse as Vogue and Nylon through to Rolling Stone and Men's Health with the likes of KCRW, BBC Radio 1, Per Se playing her tracks on radio.
This heightened profile has helped Maya already reach an impressive 10,000,000+ Youtube plays, 200,000+ Facebook fans, 10,000+ plays per day on Spotify, 40,000+ Twitter followers and over 110,000 Soundcloud followers amassing 2,500,000+ channel plays in 206 different countries and rapidly growing ever day!
Critical and music fan support alike have also helped Maya to pick up multiple awards along the way including Beatport's 'Staff Pick: Artist of the year 2011' and the likes of "Best Producer', "Best DJ", "Best Compilation" or "Best Underground Track" from a variety of media from Mixmag and DJ to FACT and SPIN!
So why all the fuss? Well, Maya is somewhat of an enigma in today's music world; on a typical Maya Jane Coles record, Maya will have written, produced, engineered, arranged, mixed and performed every element of the track; sometimes top-lining and, on most occasions, even designing the sleeve artwork too.
Comfort is no exception with Maya taking full control of all production duties. Alongside Maya's solo works, the album includes a number of special guests, some familiar alongside newer talents.
Maya's debut long player is an eclectic melting pot of sounds and textures drawing on everything from house and techno through to R&B and Dub and was released internationally at the beginning of July 2013 on Maya's own label I/AM/ME led by the singles "Everything" ft. Karin Park and 'Burning Bright' ft. Kim Ann Foxman.
However for an artist releasing her first album Maya is not some overnight success but rather someone who has been paying her dues and honing her craft for years...
First intrigued by the musical mixture of sounds from dub to punk to soul to jazz to world to classical music played at home; Maya began to pick up a few instruments herself and started to produce.
Production felt like the natural next step to realise her own vision at every part of the process from beginning to end. First producing hip-hop at 15, Maya migrated to dubbier electronic sounds aged 16; before a watershed moment in her life, Maya experienced good underground house in the clubs and warehouses of East London and started to make that house records to culminating in her first release "Sick Panda" on Dogmatik back in in 2007.
The release led to gigs at events like the BBC Electric Proms and Bestival.
For many though it was "What They Say" on Franck Roger's Real Tone label that first switched them on to Maya's work with the track standing tall in both the sales and critics charts on Beatport; and enjoying a No1, No2 and No3 placing on Resident Advisor's chart in October, November and December 2010 respectively.
Further Maya productions 'Don't Put Me In Your Box' EP (Hypercolour), "Humming Bird" EP (Hypercolour), 'Focus Now' EP (20:20 Vision), "Beat Faster" EP (Mobilee) cemented that this was no fluke garnering across the board peer support as varied as Skream, Richie Hawtin, Groove Armada, Jamie Jones, Diplo, Miss Kittin, Mike Skinner, Anja Schneider, Pete Tong and Carl Cox alongside a plethora of the underground DJ community.
Refusing to be constrained by genre, Maya continued to branch out her production credits of other artists such as Alpines cover of Carly Simon's 'Why' and more recently the 2013 released Little Boots' "Superstitious Heart" - a trait that we may begin to see an awful lot more of over the coming months...
Under the bass-electronic alias Nocturnal Sunshine, Maya also remixed emergent talents Jess Mills. Karin Park and Alpines, and originals 'Can't Hide The Way I Feel/Broke' which made fans of Joy Orbison, Benga, Craig Richards and Scuba to name but a few shaking any doubts that she was merely a one trick pony producer.
Indeed, Maya has also enjoyed success as one half of live electronic duo She is Danger alongside vocalist Lena Cullen. Famed in particular for their remix work; She is Danger remixed artists from Gorillaz to Groove Armada with an acclaimed dubby reworking of Massive Attack's 'Girl, I Love You' included on the band's "Heligoland" deluxe album; picking up plaudits including RCRDLBL & Q Magazine's 'Track of the Day', NME.com's 'Daily Download' and smashing the Hypemachine top 10 multiple times.
Maya has also remixed as 'Maya Jane Coles' for underground labels such as Crosstown Rebels, Leftroom, and Get Physical as well as spreading her genred wings to put her own spin on tracks by Little Dragon, Tricky, Florence & The Machine, The Orb, Lianne La Havas, 2:54, Todd Terry and Bo Saris with more besides...
Alongside her production and remixing credentials; Maya's reputation as a DJ has reached heady proportions following her guest mixes for the likes of Resident Advisor, Louche, Enter, Trace A Line, Defected with a Mixmag cover-mount CD and a huge BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix also under her belt.
Aged 17; Maya bought herself some 1210′s and started learning to mix on vinyl.
By the age of 24, Maya had already played in over 30 countries racking up gigs at the likes of Panorama Bar (Berlin), Womb (Tokyo), Fabric (London), Trouw (Amsterdam), WHP (Manchester), Spy Bar (Chicago), Watergate (Berlin), Home (Sydney), Verboten (NYC), Zouk (Singapore), Lux (Lisbon), Fuse (Belgium) and Social Club (Paris). Not to mention taking control of the decks at Ibiza's most renowned clubs Space, Pacha, Amnesia, and Ushuaia.
In April 2012, Maya's position as one of the world's top DJs was solidified with the release of her multi-award winning edition to K7's legendary DJ Kicks mix series which gained international chart success and massive critical praise.
Maya released the tracks 'Not Listening' as Maya Jane Coles and 'Meant to Be' under Maya's 'Nocturnal Sunshine' moniker as exclusive tracks from the compilation. The mix also included tracks by the likes of Phil Kieran & White Noise Larse, Marcel Dettman and T.Williams and has proved to be one of the biggest commercial successes since the series began with the mix hitting the home pages of major sites such as Deezer, Aol Spinner and MTV Iggy.
Club smashes "Getting Freaky" on Heidi's Jackathon Jams label and a return to her original label home Dogmatik with the release of "Watcher" followed later in the year as well as her Ushuaia set broadcasted live as part of BBC Radio 1's famed Ibiza Weekend.
Maya's final original release of 2012 was Maya's much lauded genre defying release 'Easier to Hide' coming out her own I/AM/ME label in December hinting at what may be to come with the inclusion of album track "Easier to Hide" leading the EP.
With her debut albumhaving dropped in July 2013 Maya will have played in around 40 countries worldwide by the end of year taking in festivals like Fuji Rocks (Japan), Coachella (USA), Sonar (Spain), Ultra (USA), Lowlands (Holland), T in the Park (UK), Pukkelpop (Belgium), Bestival (UK), Creamfields (UK) and Summadayze (Australia) amongst countless others all around the world. Having previously played at Les Transmusicales (France), Melt (Germany), Benicassim (Spain), Electric Zoo (USA), Global Gathering (UK), Detroit Movement (USA) and Exit (Croatia) amongst others.

Get Sasha songs and albums from:
If there are boundaries yet to be broken, then you can bet that Sasha has got them in the crosshairs. He's been battering them down since Shelley's, The Hacienda, Renaissance and Twilo; from Airdrawndagger to Invol3r. Since 2011, he's carved a new way with his increasingly pivotal Last Night On Earth imprint, the label that has introduced into its family fiercely forward-thinking producers like My Favourite Robot's James Teej, Simon Baker, ThermalBear, Ejeca, Ghosting Season, Max Cooper and Knox.
Then there was the arrival of the long-awaited third album in his 'Involver' series in 2013, the intricate and challenging 'Involv3r'. It combined on one disc Sasha's peerless command of dance floor sensibilities and on the other his skilful exploration of beatless soundscapes, featuring his exclusive interpretations of tracks from The xx, Blondes, Little Dragon, Benjamin Damage, Foals and ThermalBear. It also featured 'Shoot You Down', his own spine-chilling anthem with vocals from the beguiling Swedish chanteuse Kicki Halmos.
Boundaries out of the studio have been equally unsafe. Taking over with his Last Night on Earth parties around the globe, Sasha has brought nothing but the finest line-ups to clubbers around the world. Last summer he hit the world-renowned Space Ibiza with a monthly LNOE residency, which showcased the likes of Scuba, Catz & Dogz, Heidi, Magda and of course Sasha himself. He also hosted his first festival arena with Last Night on Earth at SW4 in the capital earlier this year.
It doesn't stop here though. 2015 will see Sasha taking things to another level on and off the dance floor. Expect big things from his parties around the world, which he is running alongside his imprint label Last Night on Earth. In his own words, Sasha says, "We have some really exciting things planned for 2015, some great releases and I will be collaborating with some of the very talented artists we have championed"

Get Pan-Pot songs and albums from:
Pan-Pot is the name of the Berlin-based techno duo, German DJs and music producers Tassilo Ippenberger and Thomas Benedix.
Since their launch in 2005, Pan-Pot have established their presence in the modern techno scene, reaching popularity with the release of their debut album, Pan-O-Rama, on Anja Schneider's Mobilee label.
Their music repertoire is best defined as underground-oriented and yet independent of any existing genres of contemporary sounds, traversing techno and house but having experimental elements with strong IDM influences.
The duo are credited with producing live sets combined with vocals that are described as revealing a deep understanding of the dancefloor needs of clubs and festivals.
Tassilo and Thomas met in 2003 at Berlin's SAE Institute where they studied audio engineering. There the two producers completed their studies in sound production and design, which helped them in defining Pan-Pot's sound aesthetic when they started producing music together.
In 2005, the duo booked Anja Schneider for one of their events, which coincidentally gave them the opportunity to establish a favorable connection with her then nascent Mobilee imprint. After a few weeks the label launched their second release, which was Pan-Pot's official debut, "Copy and Paste". Since then a steady stream of tracks and remixes have been released on Mobilee and Einmaleins Musik.
The defining moment of Pan-Pot's career came in 2007, with the release of their debut artist album, Pan-O-Rama. Tracks such as "Charly" and "Captain My Captain" became hits, which made the artists known for their blend of melodic and plain techno and house.
In 2014, Pan-Pot launch their own imprint, Second State, moving into a new chapter of their career.

Get Pillowtalk songs and albums from:
PillowTalk is Sammy D, Ryan Williams and Michael Tello. Based out of the famous Lower Haight District in San Francisco, PillowTalk's music fuses classic R&B, boogie and disco with underground house and techno with an original feel. With releases out on Visionquest, Life & Death and Wolf + Lamb, 2012 is shaping up to be a huge year as they hit the road with the live band.
It all started when they found themselves up late, gathered around the baby grand piano in Ryan's kitchen. Tello would be strumming on guitar and Sammy would be fiddling around on the Wurlitzer. It all just came together organically...without knowing it, melodies would form, songs would appear and before anyone realised, Sammy would be singing some off-hand hook and, hey presto, you had what Arthur Russell would call; "first thought, best thought" compositions.
Soon, these impromptu and improvised jam sessions were recorded on iPhone apps before being taken to 'the lab" (a space about two blocks away) and from there they were transformed into alluring, charming, dance-pop 'songs'.
With experience of, and backgrounds in, so many genres, Pillow Talk are making some seriously inspiring and beautifully original music. If you're trying to pin down their exact sound you may have to refer to their motto of 'D.A.G' (destroy all genres - a term borrowed from a famed underground San Fran DJ). With influences ranging from the Beach Boys to Sam Cooke, from Freddie Hubbard to Harry Nilsson, and from Larry Heard to Theo Parrish, you can tell these guys are ruled from the right side of their brains. Having just started composing, this trio are still finding their own true groove, with their full potential yet to be explored...
A delightful debut single ('Love Makes Parks' on the revered Visionquest imprint) is soon to be followed by a beautiful full length on Life and Death, before following that up with another finely crafted EP for NYC house darlings, Wolf + Lamb. As well as that, a live show is in the works, soon to be debuted later this year. We look forward to following this fresh and exciting new sound and realize some of your deepest secrets are revealed "Pillow Talking", so we are just lucky to listen in.

Thank you to all my supporters that have stuck by me on my musical journey. This is my most personal project that I have done to date, and is my most versatile work capturing a lot of emotions that I went through during difficult periods in my life.

Get Ed Rush songs and albums from:
Ben Settle, or better known as Ed Rush, is one of the current leaders of the new school drum and bass. One of the originators to bring back the dark sounds of drum and bass and push it to new levels, Ed Rush continues to make waves with each new release. Born in West London, Ed Rush originally started out as a b-boy (breakdancer), but eventually found the growing underground rave scene. Fascinated by the breaks in the hardcore sounds at the time, Ed Rush convinced his neighbor, Nico Sykes, to let him produce tracks with him. At the time, Nico was an engineer with his own label. Eventually they released "Bludclot Artattack" in 1993 - a journey into the darkcore sounds. While most releases at the time had a certain momentum and feel, the track was like no other, and marked the shift of hardcore's split into drum and bass. Ed Rush eventually released follow-ups nearly two years later, this time with DJ Trace, on "The Mutant" in 1995. "Guncheck" soon followed, another track developed in a recognizable Ed Rush style - gangsta attitude, and crunchy basslines. Ed Rush soon found himself on the cusp of prominence, as his releases in 1996 on the Techsteppin' compilation, the Skylab EP on the Metalheadz label, and "Killimanjaro" on the Prototype label all helped to define the genres' direction towards techstep, a two-step style of drum and bass. He subsequently released more tracks on various labels, and his popularity as an artist grew, as did his sound as a producer.

Get Particle songs and albums from:
Particle began its journey in Los Angeles in 2000 as one of the key pioneers of the emerging 'livetronica' music scene. The band created a signature sound that combined elements of Electronica, Funk and Rock with a heavy emphasis on improvisation and sonic exploration, and their influence can still be felt and heard in many of today's top touring Jam and EDM/Funk bands.
Always striving to think outside the box and create unique concert experiences, Particle paired their high-energy dance music with cutting-edge multimedia production, thematic special events, and epic marathon sets that quickly developed a loyal fan base of Particle People spanning genre lines from jam to EDM.
Particle went on to perform in eight different countries and headline venues coast-to-coast, from the Henry Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles to Irving Plaza in New York City. The band has also been a staple at major U.S. festivals including Bonnaroo, Coachella, ACL Festival and Lollapalooza.
Particle is led by keyboardist/songwriter, Steve Molitz, whose innovative approach to keyboards and improvisational music has made him a mainstay on the national music scene since he first founded the band fourteen years ago. Well-known for programming and playing vintage keyboards and analog synthesizers, Molitz appeared at the inaugural Moogfest (A Tribute to Bob Moog), and was later tapped to help design Moog's Little Phatty synthesizer. Molitz has also toured, recorded and performed with a wide range of artists, including: Phil Lesh (Grateful Dead), Robby Krieger (The Doors), Rich Robinson (The Black Crowes), G Love and Special Sauce, Tricky, Eve, The Allman Brothers Band, and many more.
Particle's first studio album, Launchpad (2004), was produced by Tom Rothrock (Beck, Moby, Foo Fighters) and received critical praise and exclusive coverage from mainstream news outlets, including Rolling Stone, The New York Times, and CNN. The band's double-live CD and DVD Transformations: Live (2006) was produced by Shout Factory and featured guest performances by Joe Satriani, Robby Krieger, Blackalicious, and DJ Logic.
In late 2006, Particle went on a semi-hiatus, as they cut down to less than 20 shows per year to accommodate the band's changing family and work situations. During this time, Molitz began a long run of touring and recording with other high-profile artists, and composing music for video games and film. The band's semi-hiatus lasted until 2014, when Molitz felt the overwhelming desire to relaunch Particle as a full-time band. For years he'd been listening to fans remind him of classic performances ("I was there!") and ask when the band would finally return to the road again. So along with guitarist Ben Combe and bassist Clay Parnell, Molitz has officially returned to touring full-time with Particle, and to continuing the band's ever-evolving journey...
Particle is currently hard at work finishing enough studio tracks to populate up to two new full-length albums, both of which will be released in 2015. In the meantime, the band plans to premiere select studio singles and to make their new music as accessible as possible for old and new fans alike. As Molitz said in a recent interview, "Particle has always been fueled by the energy of our fans, and we're so excited to get back out on the road full-time, and to share all of this new music with the Particle People..."

Get DJ EZ songs and albums from:
DJ EZ is hailed by the music industry and public alike as "The Best" Garage DJ to ever grace a set of decks. In 1989, at the age of 15, EZ (known at the time as Easy O) started his radio career on a pirate radio station called Dance 93FM playing house music, where he remained for four years. In early 1994, EZ set up his own pirate radio station based in Tottenham called Dimension FM, playing mostly hardcore dance music, rave music and house music. Dimension FM didn't last long due to being closed down by the authorities. EZ then landed himself a 4-hour Saturday and Sunday morning show from 8.00am to 12.00pm on another pirate station - Freek 101.8 FM (it was at this time that he changed his name from Easy O to EZ). As EZ became more well known he was given extra show time and was also made a member of the station's management team. DJ EZ then started his own weekly club night called Club Z at the Gas Club in central London. DJ bookings for EZ started to soar and he was playing an average of 4 clubs a night every weekend. Today, DJ EZ boasts an incomparable touring schedule, as well as a bi-monthly spot on Kiss FM in the UK.Content: http://www.epoplife.com/event/797339-wild-life-miami-miami/

Grooverider (born Raymond Bingham, Streatham, London, England) is a British drum and bass DJ.
Grooverider began his DJing at illegal raves and warehouse parties in the UK in the late 1980s, and rose to prominence with partner Fabio through his sets at nightclub nights such as 'Rage'. Grooverider was also on the London pirate radio station, Phase One, in the mid 1980s. The station also featured Colin Dale, Dave Angel,RD aka Dj Dodge, Booker T and Fabio. He originally played soul, hip hop and disco but later played house, upon being converted whilst hearing "Mysteries of Love" by Mr. Fingers.
Fabio and Grooverider began playing house at Mendoza's in Brixton. From there the pair went on to a venue in Barrington Road in Brixton, but it was not until 1991 that they would really make their mark. That year, Grooverider and Fabio took up a residency at the 'Rage' event at the London venue, Heaven. Throughout the 1990s, Grooverider released tracks as Codename John and helped build the reputations of Matrix and Boymerang with releases on his own record label, Prototype. In 1997, Grooverider compiled the album, Prototype Years which featured the best tracks by various artists who appeared on his label.
His show on BBC Radio 1 (1998 - 2012, presented in conjunction with Fabio) attracted a devoted audience. Although Grooverider is known primarily as a DJ and radio presenter, he was also a recording artist under his artist name, and the 'Codename John' moniker. Prototype is known for its sporadic releases, which have included drum and bass work by Dillinja, Drumsound * Bassline Smith, Ed Rush, Photek and Optical. The last Fabio & Grooverider show was broadcast on Radio 1 on 26 March 2012.
As a recording artist, Grooverider has released one album, Mysteries of Funk (Sony 1998), produced in conjunction with Optical, and a number of remixes including his reworkings of Jonny L's "Piper" plus Roni Size/Reprazent's "Share The Fall". In 2005, he was holding a weekly Sunday session called Grace at the London club, Herbal. Grooverider returned to the BBC Radio 1 drum and bass show with Fabio on 18 October 2008, and continues to co-present the show weekly on Sundays. Grooverider is a shareholder of the drum and bass forum, Dogs On Acid.
Grooverider has a daughter born in 2000.
On 24 November 2007, Grooverider was arrested at Dubai International Airport for possession of 2.16 grams of cannabis. He claimed he had forgotten it in a pair of his trousers. Grooverider had been employed on a freelance basis and was not paid by BBC Radio 1 since November 2007. "I must have forgotten the spliff," he said in an interview. "It was a small amount. Back home I would not even get prosecuted." Ram Nath, the promoter of the club night Grooverider was supposed to perform at, said his company had lost DH30,000 (£4,000) because of the no-show.
On 19 February 2008, he was sentenced to four years imprisonment, to be followed by immediate deportation (four years is the mandatory sentence for drug possession in the United Arab Emirates). He was pardoned and released on Wednesday 3 September 2008, during the holy month of Ramadan that traditionally sees the pardoning of select prisoners in UAE. In an interview with BBC, Grooverider described his experience and the conditions in which he was placed as "appalling".
