Presenting: Bass Check Out to Lunch

I’m a multi-genre electronic music nerd/DJ spinning tunes from disco to dubstep and a bit of everything in between. Like most people, I’ve had a long and varied musical journey to get to where my main tastes are now, and still have a soft spot for many styles from black metal and “post-rock” to ambient and Prince. Especially Prince.

How did you become involved in the station?

Over the years a number of friends who presented at the station suggested I jump on and play a few tracks with them. After what was probably too long I finally did, loved it, and have wanted to share music on air ever since.

If stuck on Mars, what five albums could you not go without?

  • Boards of Canada – Towism
  • Boards of Canada – Music Has the Right to Children
  • Boards of Canada – In A Beautiful Place Out In The Country
  • Boards of Canada – Geogaddi
  • Boards of Canada – The Campfire Headphase

What is the best thing about being involved in the station?

Getting the chance to share music with people that they may not otherwise get hear, and in turn getting to know the people who influence/share music with me that I would not otherwise hear.

What is the strangest thing that has happened to you at RTRFM?

Hosting the Up Late show and getting calls from very merry sounding people who say they are enjoying the music, then request some sort of hardstyle music… A lot of hardstyle heads up late on week nights!

If you could present a show other than your own, which would it be and why?

Underground Solution, as it is the only dedicated electronic music show where you can go straight from a 10 minute ambient track to Eski grime and no one will bat an eyelid.

What do you do in real life?

Ex-corporate drone turned born-again Uni student doing stuff with genes and biomolecules in labs.
