“ Garage/2 Step „
Now lets see. DJ EZ. Winner of "Best Club DJ" at the UK Garage awards 3 times in a row. Voted best Underground DJ at the Ibiza DJ awards this year. Has 5 Multi Million selling UK Garage Compelations under his belt. Now excuse me if i'm wrong, but I think that is quite a feat. There really ain't that many DJ's that can say that. He has a extremely popular Garage radio show on London's Kiss 100FM which gets thousands of listeners from the whole of the south coast tuned in. DJ EZ is probably one of the most recognised names on the whole British music scene and he deserves this. DJ EZ has been DJing for 11 years. He started off as a DJ on two UK Garage pirate stations in London. He was a resident DJ on Freek FM and Dance FM. Since then he has just got bigger and bigger. Many people will say that he is overrated, but many more people will say that he is the best UK Garage DJ around at the moment. Voted 97th best DJ in the worl might not sound much, but when you consider that the only previous Garage DJ in the Top 100 was Tuff Jam, it's something to be very proud of. EZ plays mainly to the London home crowd at nights such as Twice as Nice, Pure Silk and Bliss alongside acts like Radio 1's Dreem Teem and the hit making Artuful Dodger. Every club promoter wants EZ at events, people are willing to pay a lot of money to have one of the most recognised names at their show. DJ EZ is a man who rarely steps into the spotlight, but will always make the dancefloor sweat buckets.
I was looking at the list of the DJ’s on this site and I must say that I was shocked that there was not many garage DJ’s but then I saw EZ. Well EZ is doing great at the moment, he has his pure garage mix CD’s out and this is now his forth CD currently out. He also has a set on Kiss FM on Saturdays. He is fully booked to DJ at clubs for the next two years. He is on about £300 per hour, and he makes triple that at Xmas and New Years Eve. ( I know as my partner is a garage DJ also) I am lucky enough to hear EZ live every six weeks, when he plays at a club night called “sweet harmony” at Eros nightclub in London and this event is always ram packed with EZ fans. The best thing I like about EZ is that he can mix a tune; nowadays you can’t really find a good DJ that will play a good set and mix the tunes. DJ EZ knows how to “hype” the crowd, and 2 weeks ago when I heard him he was doing the best mixing I have ever heard, he can mix in a tune every ten seconds which is a skill Anyway if you want to go out and hear some top garage tunes and many previews tunes he is the best DJ to hear!
I was looking through all the opinions on DJ's and noticed EZ didn't have one written on him. Now this come as a shock to me as EZ is one of the best DJ's around at the moment. He has had three successful albums namingly "Pure Garage" 1, 2 and 3. Also I was watching an award show last night (can't remember which one) and he picked up two awards. Personally I prefer the first of his three albums because of the mixes he chose on it, for example "Movin too fast"- Artful Dodger and "Your Love" - Ray Hurley. To be honest I haven't actually had the pleasure of hearing him mix live but I am hoping that it won't be too long before I will. And then I will be able to tell you exactly how good he is. Well I would love to hear what other Dooyooers have to say about EZ but there just isn't any other opinion so I will have to wait to see if anyone will pay tribute to him now. Keep up the Albums EZ!!! *UPDATE* I found out the other day that DJ EZ will be coming to "The Park" in Peterborough on Saturday 3rd March and I might be going to see him. If I do I will let you know what he is like.
