YouTube Sessions: DJ EZ

DJ EZ shouldn’t need much introduction; a true spearhead of the UKG sound since its inception in the 1990s. Over a period of 15 years the DJ/part-time producer has stayed at the top the pile by staying true to himself and possessing a monstrous amount of skill behind the turntables. His influential quick-fire mixing style, record selection and brilliant weekly slot on Kiss FM are some assets that spring to mind.

Ahead of his show at the Get Darker vs. Drum & Bass Arena party this Friday, EZ treated us to a who’s who of garage, from the UK and beyond; including tracks and footage from the likes of MJ Cole, Todd Edwards, Woz, R.I.P Productions and EZ himself. This is straight wheel-up business.

1. Todd Edwards – I Might Be

“Just one of many of my favourite Todd Edwards tracks.”

2. KCAT vs Mike Delinquent Project – Live

“Excellent Vocal UK Garage track from the man of the moment, Mike Deliquent Project with the amazing vocals from Kcat.”

3. Woz – Reach

“Just one of the non UKG tracks that I am spinning within my club and radio sets. LOVE IT!”

4. Lana Del Rey – Ride (MJ Cole Remix)

“I had to include a track from the legendary MJ Cole and this amazing remix is just one of many from his vast library of productions and remixes which I have been supporting.”

5. Beppe Gioia & Thomas Toccafondi “Togetherness” (Jeremy Sylvester Remix)

“Still there in my Top 5 of favourite producers is Jeremy Sylvester aka Club Asylum. I have been playing his tracks since day one and here is something more recent on that bumpy 4×4 house tip.”

6. R.I.P. Productions – Mellow Works

“One of my favourites from back in the day during my Freek FM years in the mid 90’s. WHAT A TUNE!”

7. Krush – House Arrest

“One of the very first records I bought when I started to DJ. Brings back so many memories!”

8. Todd Edwards live at 4by4, Time & Envy, Romford, January 1st 2003 (Part 1)

“Footage of when I booked Todd Edwards for the first time at my 4by4 event. Look at the crowd reaction when his intro special drops!”

9. DJ EZ & Kofi B in Ayia Napa (19/06/10)

“This video was captured on mobile phone of one of the few clubbers that didn’t want to leave after my Z Uncut set at Club Ice in Ayia Napa, Cyprus in 2010. So we had a little private party!”

10. KJ Sawka Live on c89.5

“As a drummer in my school days this video of KJ Sawka always causes a jaw drop! Natural talent at its best…”
