DJ Focus : JTek

DJing started for Jason Pollard (JTEK) Back in 1995 when he got given a pair of beltdrive decks. Born in 82 he had a very musical upbringing with his dad
being a drummer and he learnt at a young age how to play them. With musical influences up till then being Punk,Heavy Metal,right through to Reggae and
early HipHop and early Acid House/Rave. With these decks started doing regular ‘discos’ hah,in the local pubs, with the help of his Dads car messing
about and earning a few quid. Late 95 it all changed when he discovered ‘free parties’ in London..that was it!! He became a regular at many parties
and realised his love for Techno, and the underground as a whole. Started spending every penny he had on records, out every week in the record shops
around London. Still using his beltdrives most of the time he would spin tunes with mates and enjoy the music, as you do. After a few years of partying
and making alot of new friends, and watching the great DJs Chris Liberator, Dave the drummer, Lawrie Immersion, Gizelle, to name just a few,he began
playing on the Twisted sound system (thanks to Ripley for that), taking records to parties every week playing along side DJs like Parker, Kris k,
Chris Redmond, Gordie, Aston Martin, to name just a few again on Underground Sound, Twisted, Freebass, Manik, and many more since. Fast forward many
parties and festivals later, still growing his record collection, he began a weekly Techno show in 2010 on Scream London radio
(where the nickname jtek come from) thanks to Coldharbour Ray for that, while also putting parties on most weekends with mates ‘as you do’.
Febuary 2015 he founded mixhitradio.co.uk with Suzanne o neill and is still growing the station with djs from all over the world, January 2016 he became
a Fnoob radio resident with his ‘Tea ‘n’ Techno Therapy’ show and was a guest on the ‘Butterfly effect’ show.
His recent gigs have been Fusion at roadmender, the Fnoob Futurist party, 2 Elemental partys, and a few free parties along the way, with other gigs lined
up for the near future.
So now, still DJing at parties, and a regular on radio playing anything from all off the above genres, and more, his love has never been stronger…
Peace Love Unity Respect..
Long live the Underground.. Thanks for reading 😉 JTeK

0010×0010

Early years

In his early years, being inspired by underground techno, he released a series of vinyl records under various pseudonyms (only one using his real name). He performed live acid techno sets at underground parties such as Acid Rain at Amsterdam Graansilo. During the recording sessions for one of the tracks he produced for ex Soul II Soul and The Shamen singer Victoria Wilson James’s album on Sony Music, it was suggested that he audition for the “De Bende van Venlo” a theatre piece based on a true crime story. He was cast in one of the lead roles and performed over thirty European shows.

Los Angeles

After the theatre experience, Universal / Island Records won the label-bidding and signed him as an artist and producer. He released one single and one video before he left the label due to creative differences and moved from London to Los Angeles to work on his art, film, photography and editing career. He took a break from that to release the track LA Mellow (as D’ray), a collaboration with Dutch Dj, producer Gregor Salto. Ultimate Miami 2, the album with LA Mellow and music by artists like Wiwek, Chocolate Puma and Sidney Samson reached #6 at Beatport’s House top 100.[10] In late 2015, he finished working as the visual supervisor of a documentary about Russian director Andrei Tarkovsky based on his diaries Time within Time, starring Tonino Guerra. In 2016, he released two EPs (as 0010×0010 and T3TSUO 303) on his Generation Acid label which both landed in the Beatport Techno Top 100 charts.

DJ Focus: Sted Hellvis

Sted Hellvis

Sted Hellvis

Sted Hellvis – cut his teeth playing old school hip hop when it was still new school, then the rave scene swallowed him up and spat him out in the underground, where he discovered just how dirty techno could get. Throw in a heavy dose of 303 along the way and he’s stomped and spun in warehouses, forests, squats and free parties, and selected clubs when he’s on his best behaviour!

Known for causing havoc as part of Momentum, Project Zero & Filth Factory, now a major player in the Welsh Connektion crew and regularly causing chaos on the wAliens free party rig!

Vinyl’s his vice, with the third deck often spinning. Keeping it hard, his sound is the harder edged squat and acid techno.
