Deekline

DJ Deekline makes up one half of the dancefloor-destroying duo that is Deekline and Wizard ( aka Nick Annand and Greg Fleming). Deekline started collecting records as a youngster, inspired by funk and electro, before becoming interested in hardcore and jungle; which led to him being at the forefront of breakbeat culture from the beginning. He has become an iconic name within the breakbeat, Miami bass and dance scene, creating his own unique sound of breakbeat, with a more funky and electro twist, and more recently incorporating a Miami bass style. Deekline has made a name for himself as a highly skilled DJ and producer being responsible for tunes like "Don't Smoke The Reefer", an official remix of Old Dirty Bastards' "Got Your Money" and "Every Posse & Crew" (with FreQ Nasty) rocketing into the dance charts in the UK and earning Nick maximum kudos in the breaks, garage and 2-step scenes and not to mention his Rat Records label which is gaining momentum in the breakbeat scene for its attention to high quality breakbeat releases. ...show more
