DJ Bailey

The full spectrum is a phrase that accurately sums up Bailey. He's an artist true to himself, who is passionate about showcasing every side of the music he loves. Bailey is a multi-award winning former presenter for Ministry of Sound Radio, BBC Radio 1Xtra & BBC Radio 1 plus a long standing resident DJ for Goldie's label Metalheadz. Bailey’s an artist who's not afraid to take a chance.

Drum n Bass is an important part of the history of electronic music in the UK and Bailey is a part of that. Early on it was drums and the break-beat that were the spark to ignite his love for music. Now he's determined to not let it become homogenised and always seeking to put forward sounds that he likes and that aren't necessarily as "current" or popular. It's this enthusiasm for the inherent variety in the genre that makes Bailey so unique and energizing.
