Baileys prowess as a premier Drum & Bass artist has earned him global respect as a DJ, multi award winning BBC radio presenter and a record producer. He communicates his musical passion to the masses. Baileys foremost love lies in being the best possible DJ with an extensive record collection ranging from classic Funk to the freshest Drum & Bass available. Most of which has yet to be released.
Baileys fixation with electronic dance music began in the early 80s when Street Sounds Electro Volume 1 spun into his hands whilst at school. The beats and scratching he heard on that tape plus the break dancing he saw on the streets inspired him to get involved in this new Hip Hop culture. Baileys South London hometown was filled with sound systems grooves, so he stepped up playing at local house parties. Bailey also sought out warehouse parties sampling Acid House, Detroit Techno, and Hardcore the emergent sounds of the late 80s/early 90s. The Breakbeat element in this new sound captivated Bailey, ultimately leading him into the world of Drum & Bass.
In 2002 Bailey was selected to present his weekly radio show on BBC Radio 1Xtra running for 10 years; broadcast world-wide each and every Wednesday from 10pm as well as a shared slot on BBC Radio 1. The show has been extremely successful winning Bailey and 1Xtra many awards including Best Radio Show at Knowledges D&B Awards, Best Radio Station at The National Drum & Bass Awards twice alongside other triumphs. In 2013 Bailey started a new weekly show on Ministry of Sound Radio presenting live every Tuesday from 5pm propelling him once again into the world of broadcasting.
Bailey began warming to life as producer/DJ in 2003 when he produced a track for Roni Sizes Full Cycle. His first steps into the world of production occurred by mistake. Bailey had requested a tune from the Full Cycle crew. Instead of the track, he received gold dust a CD of samples to make a remix. So Bailey gave it a shot. The result, a rework of Forget Me Knots by Roni Size was immediately signed to the label. To date, Baileys produced tracks for many labels including Metalheadz, C.I.A, A Guy Called Geralds imprint Protechshon and remixed for artists such as Nas & Damain Marley, Chipmunk plus producing a house track with Melissa Molinaro.
Bailey has attained Drum & Basss stratosphere. DJing far flung events in Costa Rica, South Africa, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, America and Europe hes had legions of fans screaming for rewinds. His skillz have earned him what every DJ in the world craves recognition and most importantly respect. Thats why in the dance they all chant, Bailey! Bailey! Bailey!
