Xfm / Radio X

Having previous played a number of my remixes on their specialist dance shows, Xfm (now Radio X) included me in their A-Z of DJs - with 26 DJs all dropping their favourite party tunes at Wall Of Sound's 10th Birthday in December 2003. This 'A-Z' also included top DJs from Arthur Baker to Zoot Woman - including Coldcut, Rob da Bank, Soulwax, and X-Press 2, and proceeds from the night were donated to Shelter.

A few weeks later, I was invited into the station as they broadcast my 'Superchunk', a 30-minute mix "from a cutting edge artist or producer", on Xfm's critically acclaimed and Sony Award nominated show, The Remix. (Previous Superchunks have featured such luminaries as Soulwax / 2 Many DJs, Hybrid and UNKLE.)

My DJ set was an eclectic mix of old and new, breakbeat, trance, electroclash and rock, with the occasional remix, "live bootleg", twisted cover and world premiere.

  • BT - "Never Gonna Come Back Down (Hybrid Breaktek Mix)" (Ministry Of Sound)

Later that year, Xfm broadcast a longer DJ set that I had produced for The Rinse, Xfm's flagship dance show, featuring "the best in guest DJ mixes worldwide from the established big guns to the up-and-coming bedroom massive." 

This mix featured remixes, mash-ups, and original tunes - including electro, rock, breakbeat, house and drum 'n' bass.
