Prognosis / Substance Sounds


When you read the already tried and tested ramble of a DJ’s “passion for music” or how “Music is their life” it takes away from people like J-Slyde, who well and truly represent all that is his tastes, styles, and skills when he steps up to the turntables. An eclectic ear and an appreciation for the anti-establishment has seen his style awash with hip-hop, drum and bass, breaks, progressive house, techno, downtempo, and his occasional hussy in the night, electro.

Co-running the nationally respected brands Substance Sounds and Prognosis, J-Slyde has had the pleasure of being a regular guest at parties such as Darkbeat, Instinct, Doesn’t Matter & Mahala whilst also playing at festivals such as Rainbow Serpent, Burning Man and Summadayze. Through these events, he has had the chance to support artists such as Sasha, Nick Warren, Hybrid, Henry Saiz, Hernan Cattaneo, John Digweed, Guy J, Apparat, Rennie Pilgrim, Krafty Kuts, Stanton Warriors and Lee Coombs to name but a few.

Meanwhile, as a promoter, he has hosted acts such as Shiloh, Pig & Dan, Rich Curtis, Jamie Stevens, Luke Chable, Steve Ward, Soulfire, Luke Porter and Danny Bonnici.
