With over 15 years club & studio experience under his belt DJ First Aid earned his stripes working as a DJ, producer and engineer with some of the biggest names in UK Hiphop and beyond. Since swapping his drum kit for some turntables and a sampler at the age of 15 he has gone on to produce, remix, engineer and scratch on tracks for artists such as Skitz, Rodney P, Roots Manuva, Joker, Skinnyman, MCD, DJ Die, Million Dan, Alabama 3, Benny Page, Taskforce, Dynamite MC, Aspects, Kardinal Offishal, Blade, Foreign Beggars & Buggsy to name a just a handful and as a DJ has rocked club nights and festivals everywhere from Fabric to Glastonbury. Not to mention having built no less than 3 recording studios and 1 world class cutting room!
Never one to be tied to a particular sound, this a producer who uses every inch of his extensive studio engineering background to constantly push sonic boundaries but at the same time forge a seamless blend with textures of more vintage eras, of which the recent Dubstep smash ‘Bombaclat’ is a prime example. This sub-heavy monster, a collaboration with up and comer to watch Pulsar, was the first signing to D&B legend DJ Die’s new Gutterfunk imprint and recently featured on Ministry Of Sound’s ‘The Sound Of Dubstep 4’ compilation as well as being awarded 5/5 & ‘Tune Of The Month’ in Mixmag.
His recent productions have gained radio & club support from the likes of Toddla T, Mensah, DJ Craze, Tom Middleton, Distance, Jakes, 16 Bit, DJ Vadim, Hackman, J:Kenzo, Hijack, RSD & Mungos HiFi amongst a host of others and the year ahead sees the emergence of an exciting new project under a new name and in a totally new direction which has been a long time in the making, but is finally coming to fruition. With a few big signings, remixes and collaborations already in the bag it’s looking like a very busy time to come, but all that will have to remain under wraps for just a little while longer yet…
