Originally hailing from Birmingham, and responsible for the most intense tracks the drum and bass world has even heard, we are so excited to have DJ Hazard tearing it up at this year’s festival!
With releases dating back from 2001, which include anthems such as: ‘Time Tripping’; ‘Bricks Don’t Roll’; and ‘Mr. Happy’, to name just a few. No party is complete without these dark, chaotic and pure genius tracks.
As well as being a producing mastermind, DJ Hazard’s DJ sets display what a highly seasoned and creative DJ Hazard really is. Prior to his highly anticipated performance at this year’s festival, Hazard has taken part in a Q&A with us, so we can get to know the Jump Up phenomenon a little better.
What three things can’t you live without at a festival
My car, an escape plan and a bottle of water!
What is your most embarrassing festival memory
There was one festival where I was playing an outdoor stage and it was chucking it down. I was really worried about getting electrocuted so was standing as far away from the decks as possible, trying not to touch too much – it definitely looked a bit embarrassing I’m sure.
What is your most memorable performance to date?
Definitely Boomtown with Hype last summer. It was unreal.
If you had your own festival what three headliners would you pick?
Bryan G, Randall and Brockie.
What is your favourite song at the minute?
Any Taxman tune, he’s on fire right now.
When you’re not DJing what are you doing?
As little as possible. I’m very good at watching TV.
If you could collaborate with anyone who would it be?
To be honest, nobody – I hate working with other people in the studio!
Your tunes have become recognised all over the world, how does it feel seeing and hearing other DJ’s playing them to 1000’s of people?
At first it was really good, but now they’re just playing old tunes because I haven’t released anything for a while so the novelty has worn off a bit. Perhaps that’s the kick up the arse I need to get some new music out?
