Majistrate started out as a dj in the early 90’s, and like many played on his local pirate radio station trying to get recognised. It was this station that started his career in the scene as a dj/producer, and now today Majistrate is known as a relentless producer and 3-deck dj and is one of the most current names in the game.
Majistrate’s dj profile grew and excelled more recently for many reasons, but mainly after a string of massive releases, such as ‘Step up’, & ‘Rise’ and joining the infamous ‘New Breed Crew’ put him back in the spotlight. It wasn’t long before Majistrate was performing at some of the world’s biggest drum and bass parties such as One Nation, Sunbeatz, Breakin Science, Innovation in the Sun and Dam, Raveology, Warning, Random Concept and also travelling all across the World for dj performances in countries such as Spain, Portugal, Bulgaria, Austria, Holland, Germany, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, America and Italy.
Majistrate’s production history in drum & bass goes way back to 1994 where he had his first release with Splash Recordings, that was the start of a long line of releases spanning up to today on labels such as Juice Records, Valve Recordings, Low Down Deep, East Side, Playaz, Ganja Records, Frontline, Bingo, Urban Takeover and of course NAM Musik, which Majistrate was co-owner of.
Today, Majistrate has his own label imprint entitled ‘Sweet Tooth Recordings’ which showcases established and new breakthrough dancefloor producers & continues to release his own material on Low Down Deep Recordings.
2012 has been a prolific year for Majistrate, starting with the release of his debut album entitled ‘Stronger’ on Low Down Deep Recordings, which received huge reviews and was supported by the d&b world, and gained personal appearance coverage on BBC Radio 1 & 1 Xtra.
Following this Majistrate won Best Breakthrough dj at the National Drum & Bass Awards, and was recognised as 3rd best producer, 3rd best track with ‘Inside’ & also 2nd best breakthrough producer. As well as that, Majistrate played a guest mix DJ Hype’s Kiss Radio show, signed a release on the mighty ‘Playaz’ and also performed at places & events such as, Playaz @ Fabric, Westfest, Zoo Project Ibiza, Proud 2, Low Down Deep, Eden, & Summer Gathering to name just a few…2013 is set to be an even bigger year!
