Biography

2009 was a good year for DJ Ollie, as well as maintaining his residency for Innovation, playing at all their events in the UK, Amsterdam and Spain, he was also booked to play both main arena upfront and old skool jungle sets for a host of various promoters including Warning, Grooverider’s Grace event, Def:Inition, Skibadee’s Bangers & Mash parties, Epidemik, up in the Midlands for Random Concept & Muzik Hertz, and receiving widespread acclaim for his impromptu 2 hour jungle set at Friction’s debut Shogun Audio event at Lightbox.

Inspired by the sounds of influential stations Kiss, Cyndicut & Unity in the scene’s early days, DJ Ollie acquired his first set of turntables in 1991 and started buying tracks by the likes of Joey Beltram, N Joi & 2 Bad Mice, spanning early releases on the legendary Rising High, Reinforced & Moving Shadow imprints.

Having earned his stripes playing at local parties, Ollie started landing his first proper bookings around 1994 when the rave sound was developing into what we now know as Drum & Bass. After gaining his first major residency at the legendary Pure Science night at Maidstone’s Atomics, it wasn’t long before was stepping up to grace the decks of nights such as One Nation & Movement.

In 1997 Ollie stepped into a job at Mickey Finn’s ‘Bitin Back Records’, where he was manager for 5 years. He also spent occasional stints behind the counter at Romford’s ‘Boogie Times’, one of the biggest Drum & Bass retailers at the time. 2001 saw the launch of his own label, Direct Recordings. The label is still going strong seven years later and recently saw the release of his first solo production, ‘Time To Get Nasty’.
