Known for always looking to fill a dancefloor with an uplifting blend of the biggest anthems, after falling in love with the emerging sounds of house music and early breakbeat hardcore BASSDRiVER went on to became a dj in the ‘rave scene’ playing across the UK at nights including ArdShokk, Vibealite, Cocoon, Hysteria, Dance Planet & Asylum, at seminal venues such as Angels, Bowlers & Que Club (Birmingham). Made a number of tunes with Sensi-tize, qUANGO and legendary producers EQ and Kniteforce Record’s Luna C. By 1999 family and day-job commitments led to a move to the clubscene closer to home, holding residencies playing the biggest dance anthems at Passion-Kendal (99-01); Martini’s-Barrow (01-02) & Buffers-Ulverston (01-07). Launched hugely successful Cumbrian oldskool event RE-ViVED (www.facebook.com/revived2010) with long-time friend and former Zone and Madison’s legend DJ Matt Fear in 2010 (due to have it’s eighth 600 capacity sellout event in 2014) and co-promotes annual BUFFERS REUNION trance anthems events (which sells out an 800 capacity theatre!) in Ulverston,Cumbria. Regularly plays hardcore and oldskool sets at high-profile events including FANTAZIA, HTID and TOTALLY LOST IT (TLI). Recent guest appearances include sets at legendary oldskool events GOODTIMES, NORTHERN PROJECT and RETRO-TRAX festival. Returned to the studio early in 2014 and produced two new tracks with old friends Sensi-tize and Lethal Theory main man JOEY RIOT, with further new material to follow.
