Leicester based Filthy Fusion, AKA Lackers, AKA David Lackenby (his Sunday school name) has graced the decks for over 10 years now while also messing around in the studio and releasing tracks/mash ups for over 4 years.
Rave and dance music flows deep within his veins, having spent the majority of his teens as a dedicated ‘Rockin Raver’. One fateful night at an event he was handed a 12” from one of the DJ’s and from that moment he knew things would never be the same again.
Quickly acquiring a second hand set of ‘cheap’ direct drives, he was then determined to master the art of mixing. That hobby then turned into an obsession which snowballed from there...
Never ‘pigeon holing’ himself, Filthy Fusion and his previous alias of Lackers has always refused to stick to the 'genre rulebook'. Starting to mix Hard House he soon found that with all things in life, variety was the spice. So he quickly started to mix Trance and Funky House as side projects. This all helped him to become the versatile DJ he is today. Launching the Filthy Fusion alias, he then started dropping breaks into electro, which evolved into a love for fidget and bass driven house music.
It has been over the last 6 or so years though that he has found the momentum and an ear for tracks that his following now know him for, constantly mashing up whatever beat he is feeling at the time to an anticipating crowd. Always energetic behind the decks, there is never a dull moment what with his ceiling shattering drops & ear bleeding bass.
In recent sets he has been known to drop deep, groovy, Jackin’, bass driven house one night, then smashing out full on naughty dubby, bass breaks the next and even whacking up the tempo to 150 seamlessly in order to slip in the odd hard dance track or three, taking off the roof and pushing the clubbers experience to the next level.
Due to having his finger on the pulse and often dropping tracks and sounds that most have yet to hear, Filthy Fusion has held down various established residencies and been booked to play on the same bill as the likes of Roger Sanchez, Sidney Samson, Sandler Van Doorn, EZ as well as World DMC Champion Switch, Calvertron, Micky Slim and Ill Phil... Filthy Fusion counts himself lucky to have been asked to play Main room at Air, the Emporium and taking on London at clubs such as the legendary SE1. While also sourcing himself sets in Ibiza, he also experienced continued support at such venues as Gatecrasher, Custard factory, The Emporium and the Sanctuary/ Institute, to name a few...
Currently resident at his own touring brand ‘bass heavyweight’ Monoplay and recently joining the exciting new ‘multi genre Hard Dance’ Stompede, Filthy Fusion is also being supported by some of the grittiest brands out there in Clubland where music is still as fresh as the day it was born, including Rocked and various other dance brands.
A fusion of filthy beats and never ending aural treats…
