How's it going everyone?

I'm a DJ/Composer based in London, UK.

I started DJing back in College, where I completed a 2yr Course in Music Technology.

I've always been into music for as long as I can remember - I spend most of my life with Music in the background; whether it be from soundcloud, radio, Video Games, or my own Compositions.

With that in mind, I would like to draw your attention to my Soundcloud page: www.soundcloud.com/deagobrowne

When College finished, I dabbled in other people's labs, but didn't actually acquire my own kit until April 2012 - when my dad hooked me up with current Desktop.

(I had a crappy laptop before then - Oldskool Sony VAIO with a busted battery - 3hr charge for 30mins or so in the lab... I got a lot of ideas down, but it wasn't powerful enough to hack the tracks...)

I worked on a Bootleg copy of Reason 5 until the end of Summer 2013 - when I was able to replace it with a legit copy of Reason 7 (Very happy to finally be legit).

My music sits somewhere between Hip-Hop, Trip-Hop and Drum n Bass.
It was once described as "2-Step Electronica" - which I think is pretty interesting..

I put a lot of emphasis on drum patterns - which, although complex, are usually described as quite minimal.
I specialized in Soundscapes back in college, and so I incorporate that into my music. (Movie steaze..)

All of the synths surrounding the drums serve to create a melodic atmosphere - with the drums themselves acting as a ship navigating the landscape.

I hit up audio samples that I slice from my movie collection from time to time - Kung fu, Porn, Whatever suits the track in that moment.

My compositions are quite emotional, and at times, quite intense - Each track is very personal.

I have a ton of tracks that aren't uploaded atm - I recently reached a new plateau, and so I'm bringing all of them to the same level as my most recent bits.


I also upload mixes every so often to www.Mixcloud.com/DigzFreeman, so if you're into your Journeyman Mixes, please don't hesitate to check 'em out ;-)

I would say that I specialise in 170+ BPM - I like to keep it Atmospheric, and intricate.

Storyteller Business.

I recently became a Resident DJ for www.reelrebelsradio.com - my next show is This Friday: 17-01-2014, from 19:00-21:00 GMT

I'm looking for a record label to organise Distribution for my Compositions, and I'm always up for a Decent DJ set.

I was a part of the Drum n Bass Scene from around 2007, but for one reason or another I didn't make it as far as I thought I could within it - I was a Resident for "Xpression DnB", span on www.rudefm.com for a bit, had a couple guest shows on other stations and a few guest appearances at events.
I also ran my own event for around 2yrs - " Keep Pushin' ".
Now, with all the recent "Changes", I've lost interest, so I'm trying to branch out.

I got into Stones Throw through Madlib's Music back in my teens.

You guys always come with something innovative, and I think if I could choose any label to be a part of at the moment, it would be this one - There seems to be a lot of History behind Stones Throw, and that's important to me.


Anyhoo - I think I've rambled on for long enough.
