D.O.D (Mixmag Resident)
Doors 11pm - 5am
At only 22years old, D.O.D has achieved things that other aspiring DJs could only imagine. His hardworking, non-stop approach to DJing has finally paid off with D.O.D receiving a huge two page spread in October issue of leading dance magazine MIXMAG. This was following on from becoming the ‘Mixmag / Blackberry / Don’t Stay In - International DJ 2010’which becoming Mixmag’s resident for the week in Ibiza conquering the likes of Ibiza Rocks, Recliam the Dancefloor at Eden& the infamous Bora Bora Beach as he brought his unique, in your face turntable wizardry performing a mix of House, Techno, Electro, Breaks, Drum & Bass, Dubstep, Hip-Hop, Indie with lots of accapellas thrown in, as he firmly rocked the White Isle.
D.O.D is considered one of the most exciting new talents to come from dance music. His impressively ludicrous style of DJing can only be described as ‘Jump-Up Electro with the Unexpected’ with the talent to showcase his performances using 3-4 CDJ'S, DJM800 an EFX1000/Kaoss Pad 3 to create his unique sounds. His main room edits have been taking clubs by storm, giving a large majority of his tracks that little something different, making every set unique.
D.O.D has recently been signed to one of the country’s hottest new indie labels, ‘Gash Digital’. With various tracks and remixes already released and his debut EP ‘No Smoke’ due for release at the end of November, 2010 is set to be a busy year for the rising star. Two of his tracks on the forthcoming EP are being supported and played by house legend, Laurent Garnier. On the production front, like with his style of DJing, D.O.D breaks the rule-book and doesn’t stick to one genre of music. This open-minded attitude allows D.O.D to produce and remix anything from house, to hip-hop, to drum and bass, to dubstep, electro, breaks or even old party tunes.
D.O.D is resident and co-promoter for some of the hottest club nights in the North of Englandsuch as ‘FWAP!’ a very diverse monthly club night at 53 Degrees in Preston. ‘Lancaster Loves’at The Sugarhouse, again a very diverse club night which has a ‘no holds barred’ approach to the acts they book and the musical direction they go with. These residencies enable D.O.D to play alongside the biggest artists in the industry, and just this year alone he has DJ’d with the likes of Annie Mac, Kissy Sell Out, Chase & Status, Pendulum, KraftyKuts, Plump DJs, Scratch Perverts, Grooverider, Shy FX, N-Type, Doorly, Benga, Rusko, Faithless, T.C, Example, The Cuban Brothers, The Whip + Many More. D.O.D has gained praise from some of the industry greats such as the Mixmag editors, Mistajam, Kissy Sell Out, Netsky, Freemasons and Grooverider; all of them commenting on his enthusiastic and energetic nature behind the decks along with his precise but inventive use of CDJs.
D.O.D’s ability to play so many different styles of music has seen him become one of the most interesting and inventive DJs to hear, and watch for a long time. Whether he’s playing a House warm up set, a pumping House and Techno peak time set, a Dubstep and Drum and Bass set or even and all out student mash-up frenzy.
