DJ Libz

DJ Libz has been djing on and off since 1992, in the early years I appeared in a couple of pubs and such in my home town of Salisbury but alas this didn’t amount to anything substantial, however iv’e always had a place in his heart for the early 90’s Rave scene.

In 1999 after selling my beloved decks, I moved to Newquay where I tried my hand at my other passion of hip hop and Rap. Spending a lot of time on the beaches in the summer writing lyrics I attended open mic nights.
Also at this time I would go down to the local beach party’s with my 3d super woofer and mic’s to hold cheeky little rap sessions with locals and visitors alike.

Then in 2004 realising that bumming around on the beaches, learning to surf and skating everyday wasn’t my life long ambition, I returned to Salisbury (to sort my life out)

On my return I quickly brought some decks, scoured the internet and record shops, trying to hunt down all the old vinyl I had lost over the years which put me back in touch with some old DJ friends from back in my younger years.

I was back into mixing like Iv’e never left, and in 2008 joined Choons.net where I started uploading mixes and meeting a lot of new people who shared my passion. One DJ in particular was Nicky Allen who gave me so much support over the next year and introduced me to Kidson at www.nu-rave.com/

After getting to know the nu-rave crew I was asked in November 2009 if I would like to do a radio show.
Jumping at the chance of my first show, I went out and generated such a buzz with him, I asked for more.

This saw the launch of the random rave show which started at 8pm on Saturdays after Ted Coopers show in which he hit the ground running. At about this time I discovered Ableton live 8 and quickly wanted to get to grips with learning music production.

After a while Ted Cooper moved to another night and in came GEEZAH a like minded DJ who enjoyed the same music, style and Randomness as DJ Libz. The partners in crime where born. \o/

Every Saturday from then on was about the Random Rave Show with Geezah & DJ Libz and over time the show grew in popularity it also paved the way for DJ Libz to find a family of like minded ravers who made up the nu-rave crew.

I tried my hand at running a record label, releasing 18 EP’s from some amazing artists from the scene. Unfortunately due to site closures and distribution problems I had lost so much then decided to stop with this and concentrate on solely on DJing and production.

To date, I have tracks signed to Red Alpha Records, Untity breaks and appeared on the fantastic Album BOOYAKA along side a number of legends I used to and still does look up to.

The Random Rave show still goes strong today and includes the likes of, Reezay, Mattyp, Pharmacy and Dabbsy. still in its original slot of 8 – 10pm every saturday. I branched out yet again with my own slot covering Monday nights following the BearMixer on my new home Sunrise FM.
