BARE Jungle & DnB present DAZEE & EUPHONIQUE
Bristol based DJ, producer, label owner, broadcaster and original jungle pioneer, Dazee brings her wealth of experience plus a huge charge of energy to the dancefloor. Her style is a bouncy mix of jungle rollers and steppers with a peppering of classic vibes: the sound that is synonymous with her label, Ruffneck Ting records.
Dazee’s career began playing “Hardcore Jungle Techno” at free parties and raves in her hometown of Bristol. She began her “Jungle Crusade” in 1992 and co- founded Ruffneck Ting alongside Markee Substance (Kosheen) in 1993. She was a regular at all the major 90’s raves, including Universe, Dreamscape, Helter Skelter, and Hysteria. If you ever went to Legends of the Dark Black at Plymouth’s Dance Academy during the mid to late 90s, you will remember her energetic sets.
Dazee has continued to DJ at world class events and produce great music on labels such as Breakbeat Culture, Colourstone, Siren Records, Hocus Pocus and of course Ruffneck Ting for three decades. She is a resident for one of the UK’s largest DnB brands, Run and a regular at Hospitality, Love Saves The Day Glastonbury and Boomtown, to name but a few.
On top of this, Dazee enjoys passing on her musical experience in her lead lecturer role at BIMM University, as well as Ruffneck Ting Academy mentoring projects, helping aspiring artists progress in the scene.
Originally from Manchester but now based in Bristol, Euphonique emerged into the Jungle and DnB scene in 2008. Euphonique shares with Dazee a high energy stage presence and a sound which fuses original jungle roots with contemporary drum and bass styles.
She has produced tracks on respected DnB labels such as Hospital, Born On Road, Jungle Cakes, Dread Recordings, Ruffneck Ting and her own imprint Subwoofah Records(launched 2013). She is the BARE queen of the wobbly bassline! Subwoofah Records was responsible for breaking new talent such as Epicentre, Sl8r, Motiv and K-Jah and has had a string of DnB number 1s.
Euphonique has featured heavily on Radio 1 and 1Xtra. Alongside Dazee, she co-hosts a show on the recently relaunched KOOL FM as part of the Jungle Cakes family, Fridays 6-8pm.
