NICK LOMAX (LOADSTAR)
It was 2003 and I had my first DJ gig, a freezing cold night in Manchester. I already had a few records out under the name Holdtight — and received quite a good booking through Metropolis, who run the biggest drum & bass nights up in the North.
So I played after Bailey, and it was a late slot, 3-4am. I remember turning up at the club and it was going off seriously hard!
Beats producer Kouncilhouse, generally known for dancefloor bangers, has produced a chill-out album. ’10 Years Too Late’, his fourth long-player, is full of exquisite analogue downbeat material much of which has been sat on his hard-drive for the past decade or so.
“I’m probably about 10 years too late putting these tracks out — hence the album’s title — but I thought better out than in,” he tells DJ Mag.
