Dillinja

Posted on: January 25th, 2021 by Marcus No Comments

One of the more prolific producers in jungle music — with records on over ten labels strong, two of them his own — Dillinja is one of the few drum’n’bass artists who spends more time in the production studio than in clubs. While living in Brixton in the early ’90s, he became tipped to jungle by DJ Bryan G, who lived around the corner from him. Fascinated with the sound of drum’n’bass, Dillinja began recording in 1991, releasing tracks on Cybotron, Intelligent IQ, Conqueror, Logic, Lionheart, V, Philly Blunt, and his own Deadly Vinyl label. In 1994, he recorded “The Angels Fell” for Goldie‘s Metalheadz label and became one of the hottest names in jungle. With his friend Lemon D. (who has also recorded for Metalheadz), Dillinja formed Valve Records, a label that expanded the drum’n’bass aesthetic to include elements of ancient analogue sequences. Though he signed to the major label London for a long-term contract, a planned LP was dropped and he continued producing multiple singles for the Test label during 1998-99. ~ John Bush, Rovi
