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.’

John Warehand fell in love with dance music during a holiday to Ibiza in the Summer of 1989; Lil Louis's French Kiss being his defining track of that time. In the mid-90s John bought the Technics 1210s that he still has today, and DJed at parties and clubs around London. With other commitments taking priority, it seemed like his DJ days were over by the mid-2000s, and John gave away most of his vinyl. That is until the lockdown of 2020 when he resumed DJing as a creative outlet while stuck at home - adding a Pioneer XDJ-RX2 to his setup and rebuilding his collection. As well as techno, John enjoys playing progressive house and tech-house.

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!!!
Started off spinning vinyls with friends in my early teens leading to me setting up the Progressive Culture Studio in Northampton welcoming all DJs from the local area and afar. A few years ago I started to run local nights of all underground genres from Dub, Dubstep, Breaks, Electronica, Bass, UKG, DnB and everything in between. Progressive Culture, headed by DLs, as an organisation runs a youth club in Northamptons Eastern District and is soon to be opening a social club for the community. We like to promote all music from the underground scene and to give air time to individual producers and DJs to keep them jnterested and inspired.
Radio has come a long way since LJamex was on the scene. His path starting from Pressure FM with DJ Huggie, where they would take it in turns to run over to a call box outside Domino’s to take requests every Sat afternoon. Huggie & LJamex would be just one of many doing their own thing namely D&J Promotions. LJamex eventually done a spell with the St.Albans guys Positive Force, Which was a journey of more Club & House parties, along with the guys plus his older brother Matt. So after a break, stepping back, he is now back to his routes and looking forward to playing to the audience once again! LJamex has currently done a spell on Lutons LUR [Luton Urban Radio] playing to those on lockdown, but now feels it’s time to spread his love for music further afield.
