Bass Trap – Derby – Friday 8th March


Basstrap’s up this evening! If your’e in the local area gimme a shout on twitter @howitzer_dnb.

I’ll be dropping an early doors, 2 hour minimal/liquid/tech set to get the party started, any and all requests will be serviced if possible (and appropriate).

I look forward to seeing you there!


Gig Updates

After a short bout of man-flu I’m back on my feet and feel a little more inspired to update. This ones a quick one on all the chances you’ll get to catch my sounds coming to you live.


First off, bloom!

This one’s a residents special and the last chance you’ll get to come down for a boogie till the cold-ass winter’s on its way out in March of next year. Put it in your diary; Friday 21st at the Shakespeare in Derby.

Set times to be confirmed but I’ll be on after 10, hopefully a little later towards prime time so I can get on a heavy 3 deck mix-up. Expect a retrospective look on all my fave deep/tech and neuro tracks this year.

Plus, the world will most likely end, and its free all night so no excuses.

Next up is Basstrap:

On the same night as bloom (due to unforeseen circumstances) I’ll be opening up for Annix from 9pm till 10 covering the lighter side of dnb.

Expect the best of this years liquid with a deep tip to get the party started.

£4 in all night.

No matter what your taste in dnb there’ll be something for you this friday 21st December on Sadler gate.

Finally, you can catch my last show this year on Livity FM from 7:30 pm (gmt) on Tuesday 18th December at: http://www.livityfmradio.com/

I’ll be on stream2, halfway down the homepage.

Tune in or come down, or both!

Livity FM Mixes

A little update from the radio world!

Livity FM has been going strong for a long time building on the premise of a no fuss, no fluff radio station that delivers real, quality music to the people. Theres a great community thats been built on these simple, but rock solid foundations and I’m proud to be part of it.

I’d also like to take this opportunity to give a big shout out to RED; admin at Livity FM for all the support with my show!

Anyway, I digress. Since November I’ve been running a weekly show and have built up quite a large amount of mixes which I think need a bit more visibility on my part!

Howitzer DnB Radio Show On Livity FM!


Ez All,

Ive landed myself a regular slot on Livity FM! http://www.livityfmradio.com/

An underground station dedicated to dnb, dancehall, reggae, roots, etc. Basically music with roots and culture.

We did a tester broadcast last week (wed 4th) and all went smoothly, the first of many liquid sessions I hope!

You can catch the ustream broadcast from my home studio right here: Howitzer Liquid Sessions – Livity FM

I’ll be bringing you the latest from the dnb scene every week covering liquid, tech, neuro, etc. Basically anything that takes my fancy. If you like my style and taste, tune in!

Bloom! Sept 21st @ The Shakespeare


That time of the month is almost upon us again to go and get out regular dose of beats down at bloom. This month is turning out to be somewhat of a Jungle fest with Theory and XTC gracing the decks. So get your dancing shoes on and make the most of what we have left of this miserable summer before its too damn cold to party in the beer garden!

Another fresh load of students are on their way to nottingham soon and with that, another year of Detonate. This ones set to be bigger than last year by a long shot! With a line-up like that set to shake the foundations of club stealth, there’ll be something for everyone!

Kicking things off this year theres a killer lineup that’ll be keeping us raving till the early hours on the 28th September:

What a way to get things started! If you look closely you’ll see your very own Howitzer is making his début performance at Detonate 😉

So get your tickets early to avoid dissapointment! http://www.detonate1.co.uk/event.php?eid=71769
