Excited to have her back behind the decks with her blend of vocal and funky house!
//THE URBANIZER// [JUNGLE]
The Urbanizer AKA DJI needs no introductions. Branded a Junglist at birth, head honcho at G.O.D Soundsystem and all out badman sound selecta! We’ve been looking to get him down for a while and we’ve finally sorted it! Catch him late into the evening shelling down some serious carnage.

Ex Hardcore band ‘TOTAL WAR’ front man turned Garage and Breaks selector JACK HARVEY is one of the freshest talents to come out of West Yorkshire! Expect Dark/Bubbly Garage and Speed Garage!
