I've been played on BBC Radio 6, Solid Steel Radio, Radio Popolare (Italy), and BBC Introducing, released music on Pedigree Cuts, Goodgroove Records, Big M and many more, and DJ'd all over the UK and Europe.
I loosely centre my music around Funk, Hip-hop, Disco and Soul. I love basslines. And drums.

Writing & performing:
House/bass as STEGA
Wonky electronic hip-hop as Sirklz
Bassweight remixes of cult classics as one half of Box Rocket

FREE album from Johnny Pluse

Irish badboy Johnny pluse is back... not that he's been away long. A free album just in time for xmas, and a tasty one too. It's almost like a covers album... straight sampling and reworking a dozen or so classic party starters, often not changing all that much of the originals, just giving them a little re-rub and maximising their dancefloor impact. I'm really impressed at the song choices and the subtlety of this... many people think you have to completely re-invent songs you remix, but JP shows you can just add a little love and come out with some serious heat! There's a lot of fun going on here... check out the previews

New release - Johnny pluse 'The Market Street Cut Up'

Ya boy Hoozami is back once again with the ill behaviour... 

5 releases out since November 6th! FIVE! Pretty amazing really, I've had a great year. Thanks to everyone for their support. My last release of 2011 could well be my favourite. I've been feeling my hip-hop roots recently (seems the less fashionable hip-hop gets, the more I love it) and this remix of Johnny Pluse's banger 'The Market Street Hustle' is one of my favourite compositions to date. A mixture of 90's style rugged, fat beats, dubby bass and almost ethereal, James Blake'esque lead synths, with a smattering of 90's rave whistle and a drum n bass middle section thrown in... my remix spans several genres while always sounding hip-hop, and yet properly loaded for the dancefloor. 
And my version is only one of 11 fantastic remixes available on this new release. this really is a late contender for EP of the year. Check the official Juno Review below. And, as ever, please support this release by buying it today.

Official Juno Review:
A simply epic remix release of Johnny Pluse's "The Market Street Cut Up" hits the virtual racks this week - a total of eleven mixes in all, including Bristolian beat masher Ewan Hoozami's phat hip hop remake, Dum N Bass's jump-up retread, Funkanomics' nu-funk, cut 'n' paste mix and Mustbeat Crew's MPC-styled version. For a pure bass-gasm, check out Rory Hoy's maxxed-out, pushing-into-the-red belter that loads plenty of pleasing distortion into JP's original.
