DJ Oneman



From early on DJ Oneman has just been doing his thing.  A staple in the pirate radio and Dubstep scene of London early on, he has managed to get the attention of well-respected names in the electronic scene and has experienced a healthy amount of success without ever having producing a single record.  “ I never really wanted to produce.” He said “I always saw myself as a DJ and that was my niche, playing tracks and going back in time and relaying it with the present.” Oneman has released a slew of mixes for FACT Mag, LuckyMe, Boiler Room and Fabric LIVE and the well-received Solitaire series.  “I’ve always had good people around me and support from the right places. It’s fortunate as a lot of people didn’t make it through as far as some of us and to be there at the right time and the right place. I can really only thank London for that opportunity.”


I caught up with him in between his US and Australian tour catching up on his show with internationally recognized radio station Rinse FM. Oneman has been involved with Rinse since 2006 when it was London’s biggest pirate station broadcast from the basement of an old Library in East London.  “It was a really relaxed atmosphere and when it moved people were really wary at the start, but as they built it into a professional radio station everyone was really impressed, including myself, so I’m really, really happy to still be with Rinse and doing a weekly show. They have a full setup like you’d find at most nightclubs and that’s what it’s about bringing the nightclub sound to everyone else’s radio.” Rinse isn’t the only station Oneman has been involved with, previously doing another show on React FM and being the second DJ to appear on Mary Anne Hobbes BBC Radio 1 installment Dub Wars at the legendary Maida Vale Studios.



Oneman brings something for everyone in his sets.  His style has changed and evolved over the years and has influences from newer guys like Jack Master and Skream to old Dj’s like DJ EZ and Ben UFO “You know these pure DJ’s that don’t really think about what they play and just think about the crowds and the structure of a DJ set because that is really important. DJ EZ is classic and I’ve learnt everything I know from him.” But Oneman has changes from his early Dubstep days Djing straight vinyl at DMZ and FWD and progressing into using Serato and playing a lot more unreleased tracks.  He says now he’s a completely different DJ from 2006 but still keeps the same tools a tricks from his vinyl days and applying it to digital.  He says, “You just kind of naturally progress into something you want to be.  I never want to sell out or play tracks I don’t like.  I would never do that.”


This isn’t the first time Oneman has been to our shores.  He was here in 2012 for the Laneway shows brought out by Young Turks and then a few before that on self supported shows.  This year Astral People have brought him out for Subsonic and sideshows all around Australia and New Zealand, including a rooftop party in Perth and a boat party in Brisbane.  But one of the things he is really looking forward to when he gets to Sydney is chowing down on a bit of ‘Roo, so if you see him, make sure he get’s a Damn Skippy from Goodgod.

Oneman will be performing in Sydney for Concept at 11pm on Saturday December 7th at Goodgod Small Club and at Subsonic on Sunday December 8th at 3:30pm.

What Preset

The title of this episode is taken from the second track of A Made Up Sound’s new 12″. As electronic producers are inundated with countless new plugins and synth presets on a constant basis, it seems important to try and distance ourselves from these sounds if we are to innovate. A Made Up Sound, or 2652 as he is also known, certainly wears this track title on his sleeve for this release.

Other new favourite showcased included Shed (pictured) who will be arriving on our shores shortly, performing alongside Andy Stott courtesy of Astral People. We have new tracks from Four Tet’s new Album, along with Machinedrum, Darkside, Autechre and The Field.

Don’t Feed Me Banana’s, Potatoes, and Yams At the Same Time

So much of the world music has originated from Africa. Using traditional musical elements from syncopated drum beats to melodic call and answer vocals. This episode was not just strictly music from Africa but a collection of artists some from various parts of the continent and others who have been inspired by the sound that originated from there. The mix started off with the opening track having little more air horn than we wold normally like but then transitioned into early 80′s electronic to Kuduro and South African Deep House.
