N-TYPE was our special guest for our first anniversary back in 2008, he was back playing for us again less than a year later in 2009 and now for our 4th birthday party in 2011 we hit up our favourite DJ to come down under once again and help us celebrate in style. OAF is the venue once again and you can rest assured the mighty HIJACK sound will be inside once again to bring you that amazing sound system that was assembled for the DMZ show. PLUS, we take over the Gallery Bar as well, packing it out with some of our favourite selectors playing Future Beats, UK Funky, Hip Hop and some Heavy Dubstep to close the night. That’s right, VOID takes over the whole of OAF on May 14th with our favourite DJ’s past and present!

N - TYPE BIOGRAPHY
The award-winning Dubstep DJ / producer and label owner N-Type is without doubt one of the heavyweights in the scene. Voted Best Dubstep DJ in 2006 and 2007 with releases on labels such as Tempa, Dub Police, 3.5 Records, Southside Dubstars, Black Acre, and his own imprints Wheel & Deal Records, Terrain and his latest venture with DJ Hatcha, Sin City Recordings.
N-Type began his career presenting an underground chart show on Delight FM with DJ Walsh. He got the opportunity from giving a mixtape in to his local record shop Big apple records. John and Hatcha liked the tape and it soon found itself in the hands of the management of Delight Fm. N-Type and Walsh instantly made an impact and managed two drivetime shows a week. As time went by Walsh left the station and N-Type later took on a weekend chart show as he established a solo career. He quickly established himself as the main Dubstep DJ/producer on Delight FM and did regular guest shows on many other london pirate stations and internet stations. His mix compilations were rinsed on radio, which helped him gain recognition and bookings all over England and abroad. His shows have always concentrated on good vibes and giving the best music and talent the recognition they deserve. He is always up to date with a wide selection of dubs from the finest producers. Eventually Delight fm closed down due to unexplained circumstances and N-Type moved on to Rinse Fm. Since then he has gained international recognition and currently presents a popular show on
www.Rinse.fm every Tuesday night 9-11pm. He is now in the process of expanding his show with more interviews, guest mixes and colaberations pushing artists and their music to the fullest.In 2005 he focused his attention on production and had his first release on Southside Dubstars in 2005. Since then he has had many successful releases and his music gained support from many top Dj's and radio stations with regular airplay on Rinse Fm, BBC Radio 1 Breezeblock and The Kiss 100 the Dubstep show.
In 2006 N-Type was chosen by the community of the Dubstepforum.com, to mix a compilation of beats created and sent in as a competition on the forum. The winning tracks were chosen by a board of judges and the mix was recorded live at kiss 100fm.Christmas 2006, the Dubstepforum awards started taking nominations, when the votes were counted N-Type won Best DJ and Best Radio Show 2006.In 2007 N-Type was then given the opportunity by Ammuntion and Tempa to mix the 5th instalment of Dubstep Allstars. The mix was released in the summer and took the critics by storm. This was a sure sign of the growth of the music and the respect it was getting.Christmas 2007, the nominations started for the second Dubstep Forum awards. Then in late January the Dubstep forum held its first awards ceremony @ Herbal London, and N-Type was proud to receive... Best DJ 2007, Best Radio Show 2007 and CD of the Year 2007.
Late 2008 to 2009, N-Type hit the studio with artists such as Coki (Digital Mystiks), Seven, Youngsta, The Others and Walsh and started writing an album.
In 2009 N-Type released his latest label Wheel & Deal records. It has an arsenal of sick releases from some of Dubstep’s biggest stars and up and coming artists. Every tune is carefully selected from N-Types very own Dubplate collection. The idea for Wheel & Deal records is simple; if the tune gets ‘wheeled up’ (Reloaded in a dance or radio session) then the tune must get served up in every major and independent record store. Wheel & deal is set to make a devastating impact on every dancehall and record shop worldwide! Not only the MC but the world will be calling for the “Wheel & deal”!
N-Type also Joined forces with DJ Hatcha to start the night Sin City at Herbal in Shoreditch every month. It too has been a big success, and now has a label to run along side it. Sin City Recordings has releases from every top producer in Dubstep and is set to become on of the biggest Dubstep labels to date.
Later in the year saw him tour with the likes of Pendulum and The Prodigy.
N-Type recorded his second mix album, the 9th instalment of the 'Rinse" mix series. 'Rinse' is the new definitive compilation series for pirate music enthusiasts brought to you by the infamous station that has championed a myriad of incendiary underground artists - Rinse FM. Each instalment reflects the sounds championed by Rinse FM with each DJ showing their own perspective of UK pirate music by way of track selection and tempo of mix.
2010 has seen N-Type's sets, labels, releases and production take on a new level, working with the likes of Valve Soundsystem's Lemonde, The Others, Seven, Youngsta and remixing for artists such as Wiley and Cinnamon Chasers. Both his Wheel and Deal, and Sin City labels are firmly cemented as two of the heavyweights of Dubstep.
