Joe Hussey aka Pesticide is a 26-year-old DJ/Producer from the Bournemouth. Pesticide is a self confessed bass addict who is currently studying Digital Music Production at Southampton Solent University to start preparing his own arsenal of bass-heavy beats. His eclectic taste in bass-heavy beats ranges from Glitch Hop, Dubstep, Garage, Drum n bass, House, Techno and anything in-between along with his mash-up style of mixing means Pesticide has the ability to cater to different audiences, although his primary target audience are fellow bass freaks like himself. Pesticides musical background started as a teenager playing bass guitar in Punk/Ska bands but he finally found his niche when he started DJing 8 years ago. He has since been playing out in clubs in and around his hometown for the last 6 years and has been seen on flyers along with some of the biggest names in the Dubstep and Drum n Bass scene. In 2010 Pesticide was booked to play 02 academy in Bournemouth (formally ‘The Opera House’) for the club night ‘BEDLAM’, this is place that changed him from the punk kid he was into the bass freak he is today (after being taken there not long after his 18th birthday) and has since played there twice more for ‘DONKEY PUNCH’ and ‘THE BADGERS NUTZ'. Pesticide won the ‘WE ARE VOLCANO’ Dubstep competition at the Southampton club ‘JUNK’ in 2010 winning a set supporting Dubstep legend Emalkay. Pesticide has a residency at the Bournemouth club night ‘VIBEZ’ and has many past dates at ‘DUBNIUM’, ‘ENTER’, ‘DRUMFUNK’, 'THE PARTIZAN PROJECT’, ‘THE WORKS’, ‘THE BADGERS NUTZ', 'SUMADUB', 'DUBOPTIC', ‘DONKEY PUNCH’ and various other club nights. Pesticides mission is to smash up the dance floor with diverse sounds and bass-heavy beats wherever he goes.
