I started out listening to electronic music back in Leeds in the early 80s, mainly listening to electro music on battered old copies of StreetSounds cassettes whilst trying desperately to spin on my head! I moved on from there to all things Old Skool, missed DnB as I went traveling in Spain during the formative years and it didn't happen over there, dabbled with a bit of Garage, and then House became my thing! When I returned to the UK in the late 90s, I landed in the beautiful town of Bedford and have been here ever since. My main musical passion is all things House but over the last couple of years have been revisiting DnB and Jungle due to the massive influence of so many local DnB heroes flying the flag in B-Town and I now love to play that too!

Bio - I started DJing around the age of 15 inspired, by my mum's small collection of 80-90 pop music. I soon fell in love with trance but since then my music taste has changed and I now enjoy playing anything from garage to house to Dnb. From the age of 20, I was organizing and hosting my own local shows under the name of supervision, where I gave local DJs an opportunity to DJ in front of a crowd. More recently 2 friends and I used to stream live every Thursday on Facebook, a show we called KitchenFm as it was from our kitchen flat, it wasn’t a massive hit but we did a respectable 4000 views on the hour slot most Thursdays we went live.

I purchased second-hand decks from a colleague of mine in July 2022, in October 2022, I joined the In2Beats team, where I 1st started off, on Frenchy’s Breakfast show. I love having my own show where I can showcase music from my favorite genres, play nostalgic feels, and talk about ideas, topics, and all sorts of engaging content. In2Beats is a great platform to showcase the individuality of the team here. Having full autonomy to structure the show as to how I please is the epitome of ‘Freedom of Speech.’

Brett Costello For some time now I have been hearing "There is no quality RnB music out there any more". The Urban Meltdown is here to show that there still is - but you just have to dig that little bit deeper. On this show we will be featuring music you won't hear on commercial stations. I am talking about independent releases, quality underground tunes, and big tracks from the US and UK before they get airplay over here. If you want to keep UPFRONT and INFRONT then the Urban Meltdown will be the place for you to be every Sunday morning from 8am!!!
At the young at of 13 I got into Rave just before it turned into Jungle / Happy hardcore. I got my first set of decks in 1994 and started to learn to mix & for the next few years spent my Saturday’s at Black Market Records in soho London buying jungle vinyl & meeting some of the big jungle Djs that made the scene. From there I moved to Eastbourne from Luton in 1997 and got the chance to Dj in some of the clubs playing Jungle / Happy hardcore sets in 1999.
I've been DJ'ing since Upper School and have been a Reggae Dancehall DJ for over 16 years playing along side most of the biggest DJ's and Sounds in the World.
AK has been DJ'ing for over 19 years now and joined the station in 2012. Specialising in Trance music, mainly classics and uplifting. Every now and again you'll hear progressive and deep house beats in first hour and definitely an hour spinning vinyl to close the show.
I have always had a love for music from a young age and got my first set of decks when I was 18 (been DJin for 19 years now) which were some belt drives by soundlab. After a few years I brought a pair of Technics 1210s
