Conversation #10 - DJ AGRO - Drum and Bass DJ/ Producer, Brighton, UK.
So first, I have to ask, how is life treating you?
Life is treating me well for the most part. I have recently had some time away from the DJ game to focus on university, but from September, I’m back on the road with lots of bookings and events that I can’t wait to announce!
I know there's a lot going on behind the scenes, but what have you been up to recently in the music industry?
Recently I have been working hard on the studio, and I have three projects coming out before the end of the year!
One on Sub-liminal Recordings called ‘Digital Armshouse’, which features a remix of ‘Bad From Morning’ by Taxman, and the other two are with labels which I haven’t worked with before so keep your eyes peeled for those ;)
Where do you think the future is headed for Drum and Bass?
The future of the drum and bass industry seems to be very bright. The genre is always gaining more and more popularity which is generally good. My sound doesn’t necessarily reflect the commercial route that the genre is taking but what’s good for DNB is good for sub-liminal.
What would your advice be for a younger you?
My advice for the younger generation is to remain humble because there are always ups and down to everyone's career in this game!
Any piece of tech that's nostalgic for you?
The Roland Juno synth, I’ve always been a fan of the grime sound in which this synth played a massive role!
