Five Of The Best: DJ Q

dj q banner purple

On Friday 9th March we welcome back one of the stalwarts of UK Garage, House, Grime & Bassline, and one-third of supergroup TQD (alongside previous Stealth headliners Flava D & Royal T) to Stealth: DJ Q!  


And to get you in the mood we asked our resident D'lex from Yeah Yeah & What DJs to select 5 of DJ Q's best productions:

 - - - 

Pick #1: DJ Q - 'Rocky':

"My first pick is unquestionably one of the biggest Bassline tracks of all time. This bootleg samples 'Gonna Fly Now' by Bill Conti, which is most known for being the theme to Slyester Stallone's 70's Boxing film 'Rocky'. After featuring in his sets for close to a decade as an unreleased dubplate, DJ Q's bootleg was  finally released on 12" vinyl by Local Action back in 2015."

- - - 

Pick #2: DJ Q - 'You Wot (featuring MC Bonez)':

"One of DJ Q's instrumental bangers ('Hustling') was pressed up to a self released white label 12" in 2007, backed with a vocal version by MC Bonez. After building up a strong underground following, the track was signed to Ministry Of Sound/Data for a full release. 'You Wot' became one of the first Bassline tracks to hit charts & daytime radio upon it's release back in 2008, and helped spawn the likes of 'The Sound Of Bassline' CD compilations. A decade later the track is still one of the genre's biggest classics." 

 - - - 

Pick #3: DJ Q - '99':

"This is another quality DJ Q bootleg, which dropped a couple of years back as a free download via Fact Magazine & DJ Haus' Unknown To The Unknown. It contains samples from a number of my favourite records - most notibly Dead Dred's Jungle classic 'Dread Bass' and the anthemic UK Garage track 'RIP Groove' by Double 99 - all rolled into one Speed Garage/Bassline club smasher."

- - - 

Pick #4: T Q D - 'Vibesing Ting':

"For me this was the standout track from the debut T Q D (Royal T, DJ Q & Flava D) album 'ukg' - which dropped back in March 2017, and helped soldify the trio's position as one of the most exciting acts in the Bassline/UKG scene."

 - - - 

Pick #5:

S.I.A - 'Little Man' (DJ Q Bootleg):

"S.I.A's 2000 track 'Little Man' was remixed at the time of release by Wookie under his 'Exemen' moniker; which went on to become one of the classics of the UK Garage scene. A decade or so later DJ Q re-worked Wookie's remix, bringing it up to date and it was soon featuring in the sets of the likes of DJ EZ. Check out this link to DJ Q's facebook page for a link to the free download."

DJ Q returns to Stealth on Friday 9th March, alongside Yeah Yeah & What DJs & lots more.
