DJ Bomb Podcast Episode

This week we have an absolutely amazing deep house and disco set from DJ Bomb!!!!



From DJ Bomb's soundcloud.................

Steve Waller aka DJ Bomb started DJing in the early 80's due to the influence of breakdance arriving in the uk. 
This obviously evolved into house in the mid 80's and this has stayed with me till now. 


Over the years I have been lucky enough to play alongside awesome Dj's such as the Jedi Knights, Lee Burridge, Jon da silva, John Kelly and the DIY Dj's. In the U.S. people such as Jeno and the wicked DJ's. 


Nowadays my music influences are still the same as they ever were, disco, deep house, house and tech.House music is still an obsession and my Djing is still going after 3 decades.Here's to many more.....

Meet the Residents – SysteMattiK

mattitestpic
SysteMattiK is Matti Kiviniemi, Finland's Secret Weapon to the UK Underground.

As a fan of underground dance music since early days of Acid House during the first half of the 90's. The warehouse scene in Finland was very vibrant and such DJs as Krisse & Elliot Ness, Lil Tony & Orkidea, to name a few, had a big influence in his perception of what good mixing is all about.

Matti combines an old and new school approach to his DJing. He began his DJing career mixing with vinyl, however, with a keen interest in technology, he now uses the latest laptop technology but he keeps the laptop in the background and concentrates on using his controller to mix and rock the crowd!

Meet the Residents – Nick Minardi

Nick has been DJing on and off for about 10 years. Nick got his first break playing every week on York's pirate radio station KLFM, which led to one off guest spots in and around the York scene.

After DJing at another popular event in York called Widescreen, Nick played alongside another guest, Alex Alterskye. Before long the pair realised they had a similar style and it was from then that Nick was invited to become a resident at Alex's new night Random.

Meet the Residents – Alex Alterskye

alextestpic
From an early age Alex has had a huge interest in electronic music from the jacking sounds of Chicago through to Germanic tech house.

Alex's musical style has been heavily influenced by the burgeoning underground house scene in York, Leeds, and Hull (U.K.) over the last few years.

Alex has been producing his own original productions for the last couple of years with releases on Shufflemood and Selektor Music, and more recently on TUG underground records, Physical Gravity records,  Radioactiva records, Intuito Records and Triskel-Tech recordings. He doesn't like to pigeonhole his sound - it's just house music that he likes to keep tracky, groovy and accessible but with a major underground edge.
