The next DJ to announce is the fantastic Ronnie Grafter. Without the tireless hard work from this lovely lady this event would not be anywhere near as fantastic as it is. Absolute honour and joy to work with 🙂
Ronnie Grafter, the Plastic Housewife, the reluctant DJ, the selective selector….so many pseudonyms but guaranteed to be loaded with a collection of eclectic vinyl spanning 29 years of repetitive beats; from Acid House, Electro, Techno and oddities often outside of her comfort zone and limitations. Preferring not to follow what’s populist, playing mostly Techno and what many don’t; she’ll always pay respect to the old and respected tunes in her collection.
Gently bullied to play by her closest of friends, family members and husband much of her adult life; she was forced to make a start approximately 2 years ago. The journey has been both terrifying and amazing but this undeniable Grafter by name and nature loves it.
Her brief journey up until now has had her play with and for DJ’s she’s admired and respected. Taking her out of the UK, meeting fabulous people and seeing places she never would have if not for the invitation. Many nights played have been the icing on the cake; in particular playing twice at her favoured and frequented London night of choice Don’t, and for The Warsaw Torture Boyz at Out of Sync in Poznań at Project Lab.
Paul Elemental deserves a mention for having the foresight and taking the risk of booking the reclusive Grafter for his Elemental parties twice; it paid off and ultimately secured her subsequent bookings at Don’t and beyond.
Stints on radio have also featured, playing for the likes of Report2Dancefloor and RIOT Radio, however due to poor health with which MS has been an inconvenience it’s not always been possible to accommodate requests outstanding but, their time will come.
She’s certainly come a little way and out of her shell somewhat since the daily rinsing of Dr Teeth and the Electrical Mayhem’s Jam, featuring Animal from her treasured the Muppet’s Musical Album circa 1979, and yes, she’s that young!

Todays DJ Introduction is the fantastic JTek who will be B2B with Spliffy B
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
