Biography

Music has always played a huge part in Hazard’s life; his formative years were spent listening to reggae, hip-hop and soul in particular. Although interested by rave music and its culture from its inception, it wasn’t until elements of the above mentioned genres began to appear in rave music that Hazard became truly engrossed. After attending only a few raves in the Midlands boasting superstar line-ups playing jungle and drum&bass, Hazard was dead set on becoming a DJ.

On leaving school Hazard began working in a local record shop: Basement Beats. It was working at Basement Beats that Hazard earned the money needed in order to purchase his first set of turntables and the beginnings of a healthy collection of promos.

Largely due to his driven personality and blatant self belief, within only a few months Hazard had managed to secure a few slots on The Midland’s most prominent pirate station Kool FM; which in turn led to his first bookings.

Although playing out was a dream come true to Hazard he quickly realised that in order to breakthrough and for music to be his vocation he had to making the beats as well as playing them. As soon as he could he purchased himself an Atari S.T. and a portable Yamaha sampler: although he’d never played a musical instrument in his life, the production process came very naturally and within six months he had four tracks that he was happy with and began promotion by cutting them onto dub-plate.
