Exclusive Interview & Guest Mix: LS Dare

Hey LS Dare and thanks for chatting with us!

How long have you been DJing?

I bought my first decks at 14 (2000), I would go to record shops but wasn’t sure of the names and titles and would end up buying a load of shit record’s lol, I quickly gave up Djing after that. By 18 I knew a lot more about DnB and I would go to my mate Fred’s house and have go on his decks, I loved it and soon got the hang of it, I then got some cheap direct drive’s what were pretty lame so quickly saved up for my Technics :). So short answer 18, 15 years ago.

How did you get in to that?

Listening to Pirate radio, I used to record all the sets I liked and then listen back to them. I’d also nick a few of my older sister’s Cd’s, I remember she had Roni Size (New Forms)…. I was feeling that from an early stage.

Your DJ name is very unusual – what’s the story behind that?

I’ll give you A long answer… I used to be called Robin Hood and about 4 years ago I wanted to change my name, I didn’t think Robin Hood fitted the direction I was going in. I was living with my Dad at the time and I was trying to think up a name for ages then I came up with LS Dare, so my Dad’s name Is Alasdair, So I sort of slimed his name down, Plus I thought it plays on the whole LSD vibe :)

What kind of DNB are you playing?

Some of artists I’m feeling at the moment are Tyrone, Madcap, Ilk, X Nation. I play tunes from 93 to the present day, anything from Jungle, Liquid, Deep, Late 90’s Tech Step, Rolling Dnb and Halftime.

Favourite DJ and producer?

Dj: Killing me with this question, so hard I’ll say a few because it’s to hard to name one Andy C (Man is Jedi), Loxy and of course Randall

Producer: Spirit and Total Science

Do you DJ any other genre than DNB?

I used to Dj Garage/Dubstep/HipHop/RnB and different styles of House. That was more under The Robin Hood alias. I played some amazing gig’s under that alias, Several festival’s such as Outlook. I had a residency at The Westbury in Kilburn and a residency at A Nightclub in Greece.

You are involved with From The Vaults at AAJA Deptford, how did that happen and can you tell us what’s that is all about?

I started From The Vaults with Tom (VoiceMc). One of our friends Sam owned a bar called AAJA, Tom was doing a Dj set there and I came to watch, we both fell in love the place and realised that we had both wanted to start a Jungle/DnB party for years. The ethos behind From The Vaults is Jungle/Dnb past, present and future bought to you by trusted selectas and hosts/mcs.

Where do you see From The Vaults in the future?

There will be more parties at Aaja, also The 1st Birthday is in October. Although i’m moving on from FTV, the one just been was the last one I was involved in. I’m off on a new venture, so watch this space. The badman Voice Mc will be flying the flag for FTV and I wish FTV and Voice all the best in putting on dope party’s.

You’re a raver too – what do you prefer, DJing or go out?

That’s a very tough question, DJing would slightly edge in front. I love putting tracks together, I love mixing, hearing new tunes old and fresh And for me it’s one of the best buzzes in the world, to step up at the right event, festival, party and smash down A set to people that enjoy the music just as much as me, massive buzz. I’m blessed to have played at some of the event’s I have.

First ever rave?

I went to a dancehall rave when I was 16 it was at Tudor Rose in Southall there was always some madness going on there, pretty sure it kicked of that night! First DnB rave was at Fabric when I was 18, I left Fabric on such a high, the club was amazing, the vibe was sick, I literally went every Friday after that for two months on the trot, I was hooked!

Do you produce as well?

A little, I don’t know enough to be fair, need to get back on it. I made a tune with my mate Phil (Philth) end of last year, that was fun and inspiring.

What music are you listening to at home?

Soul, Funk, Reggae, Dancehall, Techno, literally all sorts depends what mood I’m In.

What’s next fort LS dare?

More regular promo mixes, hopefully a few show’s here and there back on Rude Fm, some more bookings (cough cough promoters), a new event and production.

You have done a wicked mix for us, what can you tell us about it?

I recorded this mix a few months ago, when I started selecting tracks for the mix I was drawn towards the summery vibe.

There’s quite a few styles in there…
Soulful vibes, rolling amens, some new tracks from this year, a bit of middle skool and finishes up with some gems from the mid 90’s.

I feel it all links up well and has a rolling journey to it, I hope you enjoy it

Famous last words or shout outs?

Big up, Fred, My Dad, Dozer, RudeFm crew, Voice Mc, From The Vaults for 6 awesome party’s and shouts to everyone in attendance. Everyone in Jungle and Drum and Bass that makes it such a fun solid amazing scene.
