DJ Wizbit



Wizbit hails as a hardcore DJ from the UK, and is the owner of Lucky Breaks records, a breakbeat hardcore label. He’s one of only a few UK DJs that mix up the breakbeat and the 4/4¬†AND¬†gets a chance to play that style out.

“I do hope that more and more people will get hooked to checking sets with upfront hardcore D&B and breakbeat all mixed up!”

He started out on pirate radio in London on Addiction FM in 1998 (he described this as “the first decent pirate I got on”) which did very well up untill late ’99. They peaked with the Addicted To Dance all nighters that still rank as some of the best nights Wizbit says he hs ever played at. By late 1999 though he was getting very bored of what was going on in the hardcore scene: the same cheese was pumped out everywhere and he then played old skool and DnB for the next year, getting myself a set on London pirate radio legend Eruption FM.

“I never thought I’d get back in to upfront hardcore but a good friend of mine (DJ Uplift) was getting booked around London a fair bit and I started to travel with him to bookings. It took a while but I came across a night called Elation which was by far the best little night I’d been to in years, to be honest these nights made me get off my backside and play/make music that I wanted to, it seemed to work at Elation.”

By this time he had played for Dreamscape, Ravenation, Club Labyrinth and other small nights – so he thought he’d try and get a booking at Elation..

“Lucky for me DJs Ponder and HB were into what I wanted to do (mix up all styles in one set with a strong breakbeat flava). Thanks to Elation I’ve been able to push on and get bookings for UK events such as Hardcore Till I Die, Raindance, Uproar, Hardcore Heaven, Total Bedlam, Polysexual, Frantic, Innovation, Total Hypnosis and more.”

Outside of uk Wizbit has played for Nocturnal Comissions in Canada and is in the process of sorting out some more overseas dates. As mentioned, Wizbit also owned and ran his own recored label called “Lucky Breaks”, started in late 2003 and has featured artists such as Uplift, Luna-C, Ponder, Lukozade, Cube Hard and MC Chit Chat along with himself. The second release on Lucky Breaks, called “The New Zealand Story” by Wizbit and Ponder was featured on the Bonkers compilation CDs mixed by the one and only DJ Sharkey. The remix by hardcore supremos CLSM made its way on to a further Bonkers release. After a haitus for the last couple of years Wizbit is back in label management mode and his fortchoming label Lucky Breaks Digital will be releasing loads of new tunes in the breakbeat hardcore genre.
