Fluent in sarcasm. Runs with scissors. Child of the 80s. Stellar drum n Bass DJ. Mediocre drum & bass producer ;)
Noel Hensley, aka Havikk, was born to play music. Raised on vinyl from Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, The Doors and others by his parents, at the early age of 5 he was already air-guitaring with his parents tennis racket to KISS and AC/DC albums. Fast forward to 1997 and we find Havikk attending his first rave. "My roommate at the time was into the rave scene. I however was strictly into hip hop, and most people who are into hip hop have a mentality of 'this is the only music that is.' So one night he invites me to a rave. I really didn't want to go, but I had nothing better to do, so I went. I remember walking in, and kind of checking out the different rooms and listening for a bit. Then I walked into the drum n bass room. I was floored. I was hearing this music that didn't sound like anything id ever heard. And the energy in the room was just electric. I didn't know what this music was, I just knew I had to be a part of it."
Indeed he has. Since 1998, Havikk has steadily made a name for himself, both on various internet radio stations around the world, as well as smashing dance floors up and down the east coast in the US. Along with some now legendary mix sets, and his unique blend of 80s new wave sound combined with drum & bass, he has no intentions of slowing down. Only moving forward. Now representing Virginia, and the renowned VA Pressure collective, as well as his own imprint, Deception Inc Recordings, look forward to many more great mixes from this eclectic and exciting drum & bass DJ.
