DJ EJ

ARTIST BIOGRAPHY

Introduced to the underground scene back in 1994, EJ started his music career as a Jungle MC on a pirate radio station know as MC Elegal. In 1996, EJ purchased his first few speed garage, 4x4 and 2 step vinyls and with the assistance of DJ Mistify, began to learn how to DJ.
Within months he had built a fan-base and had a vast following from playing at parties, pubs and function rooms, and before long, EJ had is own radio shows on both Frontline 106.3FM and Midland Underground 107FM which was the start of a new phenomenon. This lead to EJ becoming a resident DJ at one of Wolverhampton’s biggest nightclub at the time; Picasso’s, and alongside the likes of Harmony / Ascension, Urban Music Showcase, Sun City, Garage Nation. During this time EJ made his first ever dub-plate which gave him the confidence to produce more, having gained support from some major labels; Soul 2 Streets, Bingo, DFL , JBR, and AIM Records.

2002 saw the birth of EJ’s grime productions, his 1st release on ARMY Records went to number 1 in the Radio 1Xtra UKG chart. EJ was soon signed to ARMY Records as an artist/producer and shortly after became a resident for Memory. December 2005 saw EJ play the big ARMY Records showcase on Radio 1Xtra, to widespread praise. Riding on that high, the Soldierz EP was released featuring collaborations with B-live, Riko, Sier, Faction G & Royal.

This happened to be one of EJ’s biggest highlights and lead to him work with a lot more DJs and MCs across the UK, all of whom are still supporting his productions (DJ EZ, Rossi B & Luca, Marcus Nasty etc).... Since, EJ has developed the bassline scene beyond belief with his legendary EJucation (pronounced ‘education’) series, featuring more artists across UKG, Grime & 4x4 speed-garage than one might think possible. There are RinseFM residencies, BassFest and Sidewinder resident accolades and the next generation of producers like Darkzy, Bru C, Bassboy, Pantha and Burgaboy name-checking EJ as direct influences in them getting into producing bassline.

Soon out to conquer the US, with growing interest from some on the music industry’s leading promoters, artists, clubs, publications, and labels, Albzzy stands unwavering - ready to leap - on the edge of greatness.
