Please introduce yourself…

Hiya all,

I am Fedi, I am Slovak, I am short, crazy and a bit weird too but most of my friends love that.

Also I am in love with drum and bass and probably heading to be a full on DJ in the future – hopefully! ( haha )

 

When did you decide to start mixing Drum & Bass and why?

I have listened drum and bass so many years basically from my early teenage years.

I used to be a promoter back in my country for few years so I have been into dnb even more than just a regular fan.

I am still part of the biggest promoters crew in Slovakia – Trident and currently I am also part of my lovely Hexagon crew here in UK.

When I moved to London I was 100% sure that I wanted to do more with drum and bass so I have started to teach myself to play on friend’s CDJs Pioneers 350 and that’s how it started.

 

 

Was there anyone in particular that inspired you to start DJing?

Many of my friends inspired me to start also many producers with their amazing music really inspired me too.

 

Any events your playing at this year?

I have already done DJ sets this year in Bratislava/ SK, Prague/ CZ and London.

Next one will be at our biggest dnb festival Trident open air in Slovakia.

 

Any Final Words?

Big shout to all my friends, family and my partner for putting trust in me and pushing me to achieve my goals.

Also my second family in Trident SK crew, Drum and bass Wear crew and Hexagon crew for giving me opportunities to learn and improving myself in many different ways.

 Finally thanks to Drum+Basics ladies for this great opportunity.

Great to have a mix on your channel!

I really appreciate it and hope you all will like it!

15/3, London. Andy C Residency

LINE UP

Andy C

Marking the first time we have ever invited a resident back to the club, Andy C takes the helm as our 21st quarterly resident of XOYO. His 2017 residency blew the collective minds of the d’n’b scene worldwide, and it’s fair to say we are hyped to welcome him back to XOYO. Prepare yourself for another stripped back,
intimate, sweaty affair with some of the biggest and best names in the scene. MC Tonn Piper joins him for 13 weeks, the pair’s lasting friendship second only to their shared passion for drum and bass.

Discovered whilst co-owning De Underground Records shop, label head of Mac II Recordings and Stepback Sessions is otherwise known as the man who influenced Andy C. Playing a pivotal role in the evolution of electronic music, Randall’s one of the pioneers who helped shape Breakbeat and Jungle into what we know and love today.

Founder of the Index imprint and Digital Soundboy’s main man, Breakage has proven himself as a musical chameleon, moving effortlessly between Drum & Bass to Dubstep. His diverse back catalogue and reputation for moving fluently between genres has meant it’s not possible to pigeonhole him and made for the most exciting sets. LFM in support.

Admission to XOYO is at management’s discretion, advance tickets do not guarantee entry. If entry is refused to a ticket holder, you can obtain a full refund (minus booking fee) by contacting XOYO after the event at info@xoyo.co.uk.

There will be 200 tickets available on the door from 9PM. These will be available on a first come, first served basis.

Interview & Guest Mix: Bonnie Blaze.

 

Please introduce yourself..

 

Hi my name is Eleni aka DJ Bonnie Blaze.
I’m originally from South East London now currently situated in Peterborough UK.

 

How many years have you been Djing out in clubs?

 

I’ve been DJing since I was 19 years old since December 2001.
My boyfriend ( who I was seeing at the time ) brought me my first pair of decks for my 19th birthday.
I taught myself to mix in 2 weeks and got to play my first ever live set in 2002 at Jamm in Brixton

 

How do you balance being a parent and Djing?

 

Although it is quite difficult at times I still manage to fit my DJing and goals around parenting because luckily like their mother they are junglists and don’t mind me playing my music or following my dreams just as long as they come first so I have to prioritise well.

I would like to be able to start doing radio shows from home or at a studio and I plan to do some guest appearances or some radio shows too very soon.

What my goals for the next few years will be getting my head down in the studio and stuck into music production.

 

Who has kept you motivated & inspired you over the last few years within D&B?

 

When I started out mixing I had two goals one to bring the Old Skool sounds back into the raves as I missed them and wasn’t hearing them out much back then and that I wanted to inspire more and more females to want to DJ as you got to admit they wasn’t enough females in Jungle and Drum and Bass back in the early 00’s.

In regards to my sets I use to play a lot of 94-96 Jungle mainly, I was lucky enough to have borrowed a lot of my cousins records so I could practice and use to play out when I finally got to that point in my DJing.

Back then I was playing a lot of tunes from 1991 hardcore right up to 1996 Jungle and Drum and Bass because I wanted to start from the beginning due to being an Old Skool lover.

My inspirations go way back to some of the originators like Fabio & Grooverider, DJ Hype, DJ Randall, Micky Fill, Aphrodite and DJ Rap to name a few.

More recently I’ve been inspired by the likes of Bladerunner, DJ Hybrid, Aries, Epicentre, Benny L plus many more also artists that are working hard as DJ’s in the scene like Andy C and Nicky Blackmarket pushing boundaries and are out there playing through the whole spectrum in their 5 hour sets.

Plus we cannot forget all of the female artists doing their thing in the scene right now, they inspire me the most to keep doing what I love.

 

 

Where can we see and hear you next?

 

Here’s a list where you will be able to catch me playing out next.

So far confirmed are…

– Jungle Revival @ Club Aquarium, Old street on 5th April 2019.

– T Promotions 1st Bday Bash @ Protocol, Vauxhall on 20th April 2019 (Day time event).

– Unity in the Sun 2019 repping Jungle fever in Corfu, Greece from 20th May – 27 May 2019.

– Lakefest 2019 (More details to follow soon) dates between 8th – 11th August 2019.

 

Do you prefer 60 minutes sets or 90 minutes?

 

I’m going to say I really prefer 90 min sets.

When I’m playing out live in clubs I enjoy seeing people dancing and smiling to your live sets and I like to have plenty of time to express myself through my sets, plus time always goes so quick when you’re having fun.

If I’m mixing at home I prefer 60 mins sets as it isn’t quite as liberating and I just want to hurry up and finish my recording (if I’m making one at the time) and get it up on my mix cloud so others listen and enjoy the music too.

 

Which Dj/Producer are you enjoying at present?

 

The DJs/Producers I’m feeling at present have got to be Mrs Magoo, Frenetic and Holly-May, Euphonique, DJ Jessie Jo, Lady V Dubs.

DJ CALI, Aries, DJ Hybrid, Bladerunner, Veak, Benny L, DJ Blacklist, Jaguar Paw & Yush, Lydia Briggsy, Dizzy Blonde, DJ Choppah, Spectrasoul, DJ G Luis, Operator M, Mantra, Djiin.

Sista-Matic, DJ Bagpuss, DJ Relm, Lavery, Uncle Dugs, Billy ‘Daniel’ Bunter, The Fat Controller plus too many more to list right now…

 

Any final words,special thanks,mentions?

 

Finally…. I want to send some shouts and special thanks/mentions to all my family and friends and people who have booked me and supported me over the years plus more.

All these special mentions are in no special order D.V.S MC  for booking me (one of my first epic bookings) Grant Epidemik, MC Deefa and Mr Joseph for organising me to play at Fizzy Wednesdays.
