5 years on, it's time to celebrate, and what better way than to have the DJs DJ, Bailey, take the reigns.....
Arguably one of the leaders of the world wide drum 'n' bass movement, DJ Bailey has been a major force in the scene since his performances at the Metalheadz club nights at the old Blue Note in 1996. From this beginning DJ Bailey has gone on to perform all around the world and at the biggest club nights and festivals in the UK, including One Nation, AWOL, Movement, Creamfields, Valve, Fabric Live, The End, Dreamscape, Slamming Vinyl, and not forgetting Goldie's club Metalheadz and Fabio's club Swerve both at which he is a resident.
His gift for precision and his natural intuition for what the people want has lead BBC 1Xtra to secure Bailey as part of their core starting line up, every Sunday night (11pm – 1am) and in 2003 he won the award for 'Best Radio Show' at the Knowledge Drum and Bass Awards. Bailey has used this role to push new and unknown emerging talents, bucking the trend of scene elitism to drive the movement forward. His sets encompass the variety and musical texture that make drum 'n' bass unique, never settling on one style long enough to be pigeon-holed.
