A name pretty much synonymous with the rougher and ruder UK Garage cousin that is Bassline, Jamie Duggan has been plying his trade as a producer, DJ and events promoter since the sound?s earliest beginnings. An original resident of the Niche nightclub ? a venue so closely tied to the sound that the genre and club shared a name for some time ? he?s been an unofficial ambassador for the scene for more than a decade.
Despite arguably, if you?ll excuse the pun, niche appeal, it?s a sound that inspires fervent devotion from its followers ? a devotion that has proved infectious and helped top producers like T2 and DJ Q climb the UK charts over the years. Its close ties to MC-led Grime and UK Rap has also meant that periods of good health in those scenes has often seen a concurrent boom for Bassline. The past couple of years have been no different, and critically-lauded full length efforts from the likes of tqd(a production ?supergroup? made up of Butterz label affiliates Royal-T, DJ Q and Flava D) have seen the sound strengthening its foothold.
Available Now new compilation, Pure Bassline, mixed by DJ Q and Duggan
