DJ Aggers

Drum and Bass Sheffield DJ Aggers Feedback

Aggers got into DJing after listening to pirate broadcasts in Sheffield from the age of 16. Soon he was buying vinyl at the Warp Records shop on Division Street and mixing hip hop in his bedroom for his own entertainment. Then drum ‘n’ bass came along and he didn’t look back. At the age of 17, inspired in part by Fabio & Grooverider’s One In The Jungle show on Radio 1, the young aspiring DJ won a competition put on by Muzik Magazine and had part of his winning mix played on the station. Two years later he also came first in a Drum and Bass Arena competition, eventually leading to a residency at Republic (which later become Gatecrasher nightclub).

Having also bagged sets at Mint, Definition and the legendary NY Sushi, Aggers moved to London to work for Drum and Bass Arena, conducting interviews with big names in the scene, promoting nights and doing a weekly Thursday night slot on pirate station Rude FM. He came back to Sheffield in the early 2000s, just in time to take up a residency at the fledgling Feedback, which since then has grown in size and reputation by putting on big names like Raiden, Tech Itch, Black Sun Empire and Randall.
