DJ Hype


Drum and Bass

Releasing and playing the finest dancefloor drum & bass known to man since before it was given the name. His passion for the scene, nor his skills behind the decks, have ever slipped. In short, a living legend.

Few DJs or producers could claim to be as active and committed to their music as London's DJ Hype. Gaining experience as part of the Heatwave Soundsystem (part of Shut Up & Dance), he mixed reggae, hip hop and house with the 'all-inclusive' attitude he now applies to drum and bass. He has built soundsystems, A&R'd for Kickin' Records, worked with both indies and majors, and hosted radio shows on the seminal Fantasy FM and Kiss. He currently operates the labels True Playaz, Naughty and Global Thang.
