Born and raised in Huddersfield, DJ Q is a prolific artist who’s become as much known for his relentless work rate as much as he is for his six-year stint as a DJ on BBC Radio 1xtra.
His 2007 bassline smash hit ‘U Wot’ might have brought his speedy, characteristic sound a bit of notoriety, but it’s his tireless schedule that’s kept him secure in the minds of the record-buying public. With over one hundred separate remixes under his belt as well as a solo album, Ineffable, released on Local Action in 2014 and the collaborative t q d album, UKG, released just last year, Q’s enthusiasm shows no sign of waning.
It’s in the live arena though, that DJ Q’s technical ability really shines through. As one-third of t q d he toured the UK club and festival scene relentlessly for two years culminating in a headline concert show at Electric Brixton after several slots at prominent European festivals. His current live project is an ‘All Night’ show (which he recently toured for 9 days straight, totaling more than 50 hours playing time) during which he digs deep into his archives, spinning a meld of house, garage, bassline, jungle and more. It’s the best way to witness Q’s passion for the music he plays and experience his wide-ranging technical ability.
