PURPLENOIZ

I started making bedroom mixes in 1983 with a MAC and a double tape deck.
In 1993 I was on the radio, broadcasting to Nottingham for 6 years as DJ Lazy.
I started playing Nottingham clubs in 1994 and set up a night called Twist.
In 2004 I teamed up with El Carlos and created Jump Shake Rattle & Roll in Birmingham.

I play old skool rave and hardcore, jungle and drum n bass,
techno and acid, deep and classic house, hip hop and electro.

BPM Series

BPM SERIES

I'm currently creating a series of mixes with the aim of playing every single record in my collection.
It's a big project with thousands of records to chose from.
Instead of grouping records by genre, this time I'm playing tracks with the same bpm.
Eventually I'll have mixes from 80 to 180 bpm!

JUNGLE DNB

When jungle started to emerge, I was more interested in the happier hardcore tunes
but later I came to appreciate jungle's raw beats and basslines.
Plus I got a few drum and bass tracks as well!

HIP HOP

I started listening to hip hop in the early 80s when Grandmaster Flash took the world by storm.
EPMD, Eric B and Rakim, Rob Base and DJ E-Z Rock...
This is my series of mini-mixes including hip hop, electro and breaks.
Basically, it's a pile of my slowest records, that I don't get chance to play much,
some are all mashed up, other's played in all their 12" glory!
A bit of fun from 2004.
