STUNNA kicks off a brand new month on the 6th of JULY with a special edition of 'THE GREENROOM' on BASSDRIVE Radio. In this week's installment, we turn our attention to good friend, long-time vinyl curator and specialist, DJ ESSAY, as he graces the decks with an exclusive guest mix for the program.
Intrigued by the burgeoning productions of JUNGLE/DRUM+BASS in the early 1990's, DJ ESSAY obtained his first pair of TECHNICS turntables in 1994, purchased a grip of 40 plates in the scene's hub of LONDDON, ENGLAND, and was instantly hooked on the format of vinyl. Continuing his journey through the '90s as a wax addict, ESSAY teamed up with an MC and explored a mosaic of SOUL, FUNK, and NEW JAZZ sounds. The early 2000's saw ESSAY launch his growing collection and love for analog synthesizers' endless sonic capabilities in the electronic music arena. With exposure to numerous performances from DRUM+BASS scene luminaries LTJ BUKEM and STORM around NUREMBERG, GERMANY clubs and venues, ESSAY affirmed his strong-rooted connection to the cutting-edge sounds of D+B, fresh from the scene's epicenter of the UNITED KINGDOM.
Join us this session as DJ ESSAY presents an upfront selection of cuts doing the rounds and expertly showcases the indisputable fact that vinyl is truly alive and well. Tune in!!
