DIGITALLY MASHED started his DJ career over 20 years ago and is still going strong today .
In the year of 2009 DM along with many DJ’s joined the j-tek movement set up to reignite the sounds of the short lived jungle techno scene that swept the UK dance scene in the early 90’s , The new brand j-tek would have all the elements of jungle techno keeping its tempo and vibes at 140bpm to 150bpm . Being produced with the advances in hardware and software the rebirth would be on another level with effects to die for, clean crisp sound and as many sequence tracks you want. Tie this in with the advances in production skills from the old school producers wanting to be part of the revamp of a much loved scene you would think it had success written all over it .
Unfortunately this was not the case with nights being on the quiet side and battling against economic down turn many top flight DJ’s returned to their bread and butter slots and things were looking bleak for the all new J-tek sound.
One DJ was not willing to give up though DIGITALLY MASHED still pushed the sound on his radio slots every week and at one point playing four different shows on three stations . Before long DM had his chat rooms buzzing and was recruiting new producers to the scene. Scanning soundcloud daily DM was hitting up potential producers offering them a platform to showcase their music on his shows. Only four years on and his hard work as paid off with Big artists making a impact on the scene such as previously reviewed vinyl junkie & Bay B Kane .
Currently with his weekly Top Drawer Digital 140-150 Bass Show live every Tuesday 7-9pm on www.nsbradio.co.uk & The Jungle Show live every Wednesday 6-8pm on www.globaldnb.com DM is still more than active playing a major part in the ever expanding label TOP DRAWER DIGITAL and pushing the scene GLOBAL .
