Over the last 33 years DJ Style has been an instrumental part of establishing the Hip-Hop and R’n’B scene in Bristol, rising from the underground into a permanent fixture in many night clubs. The impact of his mixtape & radio shows is evidence of his talent and skill, and the reason why DJ Style is highly regarded as one of the best in his field.
He has also put his talent into running his own club nights: Flava of the Month, The Next Level, Code of The Streets, Then & Now and True Soul Survivors. B.I.G (Born in the Ghetto) Productions is the DJ outfit which he shares with DJ Fagan, who is also a regular DJ around the City of Bristol..
DJ Style and DJ Fagan are resident DJ’s at Cosies Wine Bar, Portland Square in Bristol every 1st Saturday of the month. This night has been running for 8 years and has a strong fan base.
In 1989 DJ Style received an award from the late Diana Princess of Wales for outstanding contributions to a community group he set up called Real Deal Artists. One of the award panellists was Jonathan Ross who was also very supportive of the project. The group ran workshops throughout the inner city giving young people an insight into Hip -Hop culture through sound & visual media.
Specialising in his music preference of Hip-Hop, Rare Groves, Old School, R’n’B and Dancehall, DJ Style is also able to adapt to suit any other occasion. Due to his knowledge of the industry and his strong local popularity, promoters request his help for events and consultancy roles,.
Dj Style brings to the table a wealth of experience in presenting radio shows, as well as performing live. He has played at Soho, Creation, The Blue Mountain, 02 Academy, Mackies Bar, Elbow Rooms, Warehouse, Java, The Bristol Hotel, Dojo, Level, The Thekla, The Tube, Warehouse, Canvas Club, Fleece Lakota, and Metropolis and also touring at venues in Birmingham, Gloucester, Bournemouth and Bath.
