DJ Dylan Bassline James (Energy Surge / Energy Surge Radio) I started mixing at aged 16 and grew up in and around the free party scene. I first played at venues in Carmarthen: Riviera, Jolly Tar, Metro's. I also played at a few clubs in other places: The Kitchen (Dublin), Club 414 Brixton (London), and Sin City (Swansea). I first started mixing Happy Hardcore and Bouncy Techno back in 94 and quickly moved on to Hard Trance and Acid Techno.
I started getting involved with event promotions in the late 90s and also setup a mail order record company (Dance Active Records). For various reasons such as relationship breakdowns and other things I wrapped up my business and left the scene behind for a few years.
In 2006 I got back in to mixing seriously and played at any parties I could possibly grab a set at. Playing styles from Acid Techno to Breaks and Drum and Bass, at local nights in Carmarthen for Fat Lace, Syzrgy, and Monkey fist. I now play mainly dark Drum and Bass, Neurofunk and Jungle.
In late 2007 I started up Energy Surge (a monthly night) @ our beloved little venue The Jolly Tar. I went on to run this night until the venue was sold in mid-2008. In the short time I was doing nights back then Energy Surge earned a reputation for putting on quality nights, with phat music, great vibe, amazing lighting and decor and the best DJs in the area. Shouts go out to my bro Jake Radar (FAT LACE) and Stef now known as Synapse (SESH ON) and Matt Maunder aka DJ Distant who were my residents back then. It was a quality bunch of DJs!
