ODJ has been mixing tunes for the last nine years or so, and founded Dirtbox Radio, one the longest-running jungletrain.net shows, back in April of 2002. His selection varies from old school rarities to drumfunk to jump up to deep melodic tunes to amen smashers, and pretty much everything in between - but generally favoring the warm and organic.
This mix sways pretty heavily towards bassline-centric tracks, and a good number of them are from 2009, which as been a pretty amazing year for Drum & Bass and its ever-surprising evolution. True to form, however, there are some classic choons inside as well.
Listen to Dirtbox Radio LIVE on jungletrain.net: weekly, Sundays, 23:00 - 03:00 (CET). ODJ is joined by co-hosts Encryption, Resonance, and DaveJ in showcasing the plethora of DJs and producers from in and around the Washington DC area of the USA.
