DJ Karnage (Roll Deep)

He started DJing at the age of 16.   After leaving school I was recommended by friends and my uncle who has part ownership to the pirate radio station Rinse FM (100.3).

He started on the breakfast slot on Saturday mornings from 9 to 11 mixing Jungle for between two to six months.  My slot was then moved to 1 am to 6 am Saturday night.  Various other MCs such as Wiley, Riko, Riddles, Dream were at the same station.

After starting that slot, He began to get recognition and thereafter began DJing at certain under 18’s events such as Young Man Standing, Bigga Fish Events, Rumble and Stampede.

After DJing around London for about a year the Jungle Scene slowly started to die down and Old School and Garage Scene started to take off.  At this time Rinse FM was being divided into two separate stations, one playing Jungle, Drum and Bass and the other Garage.   I made the decision to turn my attention to the Garage Scene and it was at this stage that Pay as You Go was formed as a Garage Group.  While they were performing around the country, one of their MCs would perform on my show, Wiley, Plauge and Godsgift.  It was soon afterwards that I changed my slot to Thursday nights, 9 pm to 11 pm along with MC Flo Dan.  Shortly after changing to the Thursday night slot, Pay as You Go split up and Wiley and Breeze then form the group Roll Deep.

Roll Deep have been performing as a group for 10 years, giving performances abroad and throughout the UK.  Roll Deep’s last two singles, Good Times and Green Light has made it into the UK Chart.
