DJ Q is one of the UK’s leading garage DJs and producers – who currently presents a monthly show on Ministry of Sound Radio. DJ Q is perhaps best known for his time on BBC 1Xtra where he held down a weekly show until 2012. During this time he was embraced by Radio 1 with several guest slots and mixes for Annie Mac, Pete Tong, Mistajam and Trevor Nelson.
After teaching himself to mix, Q started to get bookings at local parties at the age of 15. At the age of 16 he attended college and gained a BTEC National Diploma in Music Technology – it was here where he learned how to produce music.
Q’s break came was when he was invited onto radio as a guest to showcase some songs he produced. While at the station he dropped off a mix CD and was later asked to host a show – he officially joined BBC 1Xtra in 2004 and his career hasn’t looked back since.
As a producer, DJ Q has had notable success including having his underground smash ‘You Wot’ picked up by Ministry Of Sound. His remix credits include Amy Winehouse, Dizzy Rascal, Keri Hilsonand Katy B amongst others. Q has also remixed and worked with the likes of Rusko, Toddla T & Shola Ama, and Boy Better Know. As a club DJ, Q has also played music in various countries over the years such as Ibiza, Malia, Ayia Napa, Kos, Corfu, Switzerland, France, Russia & America.
