Dj, Producer, Label Owner, Broadcaster and Original Jungle Pioneer, Dazee brings her wealth of experience plus a big charge of energy to the dancefloor. Her style is a bouncy mix of jungle rollers and steppers with a peppering of jump up and classic vibes : the sound that is synonymous with her label, Ruffneck Ting records.
Dazee began her “Jungle Crusade” in 1992 and co- founded Ruffneck Ting alongside Markee Substance (Kosheen) in 1993. Regular appearances at celebrated 90’s raves Universe, Dreamscape, Helter Skelter, Hysteria and World Dance, helped build her name, with her sets captured forever in many of the tape packs from that era. Since then, her pioneering sound has taken her around the globe and she has featured on BBC Radio 1, Ministry Of Sound, BBC 1Xtra, VH1 HTV and ITV.
Dazee’s productions and co-labs have seen successful releases over two decades on independent dnb labels Breakbeat Culture, Colourstone, Siren Records, Hocus Pocus and of course Ruffneck Ting. From “Damn Right” released in ’96, to 2020’s co-lab with Euphonique, “Feel So she continues to champion her distinctive sample-led and bass heavy sound.
She stepped up to manage Ruffneck Ting Records after the relaunch in 2013 and since then the label has since gone from strength to strength with a succession of EPs topping independent dnb download charts. In 2016, with the help of label regulars, Jinx, K Jah, Vytol and artist, Steve Wright, Dazee released “The Xtraordinary League Of Junglists”,a sci-fi inspired concept album with accompanying vinyl and comic. She released the second Xtraodinary League Of Junglist’s album Level 1 and Level 2 in 2018, continuing the theme and showcasing the huge roster of artists now producing for the label.
No stranger to broadcasting throughout her career, Dazee began in the mid 90’s with shows on Bristols pirates, Ragga and Passion FM, alongside her then partner in crime, MC Jakes (Hench). This was soon followed by a weekly dnb chart mix on Galaxy 101 and several performances on BBC Radio 1’s One In The Jungle. In 1996 Dazee featured in “The Sounds Of The West” documentary alongside Roni Size and Krust and in 2001, HTV’s “The Session” that featured her dnb music project, Eden. In the mid 2000’s, Dazee’s involvement with all-female collective Dutty Girl led to a performance of their track “Dark Places” on ITVs “Fixers” and mixing Genna G’s winning mixtape for 1xtra’s “Homegrown Challenge” . Dazee continues to broadcast the Ruffneck Ting sound on the airwaves and having hosted Takeovers on Ujima 98 FM, London’s legendary Kool fm and Rough Tempo, she is preparing for a fortnightly show on Bristol’s much anticipated SWUfm
Dazee’s long time passion for her music is evident and she continues into the future as resident for Ruffneck Ting and Run world wide. Events such as Love Saves The Day, Jungle Jam, Shambala, Glastonbury, Hospitality and Hotcakes Live Streams have continued to take the Dj Dazee/Ruffneck Ting sound to an ever-wider audience. With a heavy schedule of Ruffneck Ting releases set for 2020/2021, production and label management keeps her busy when she’s not behind the decks. On top of this, Dazee enjoys passing on her musical experience in her Lead Lecturer role at Bimm University, as well as Ruffneck Ting Academy mentoring projects, helping aspiring artists progress in the scene.
“I’ll always do my best to bring colourful sounds and positive vibes to the scene and help other people with their creative journeys whenever I can”
