Biography

DJ Hix is one of the UK’s most exciting new DJ talents. Born in London and based in Belfast, Hix is generally regarded as one of the finest RnB DJs to ever come out of the island of Ireland. His sound stretches across RnB, HipHop, and Soul music, but what makes him stand out from the rest is his ability to create a unique, party vibe whenever he plays, and he is renowned for making even the quietest crowds go crazy, cutting and scratching his way through anything that’s funky!

Hix has worked with some of the finest DJs and artists in the business, including DJ Cash Money, DJ Premier, Clinton Sparks, Rhymefest, Ryan Leslie, Fatman Scoop, Shortee Blitz, Steve Sutherland & Trevor Nelson to name just a few, as well as warming up for Jurassic 5 during their UK tour.

Hix is unquestionably the number one urban DJ in Northern Ireland, and is the top man in the urban club scene there. He is highly regarded by artists, DJs, agents, and record labels from all parts of the globe, and his infectious sound and distinctive DJ skills can be heard regularly filling the dancefloors of the hottest clubs in the land.

He is also responsible for creating some of Belfast’s biggest and most respected clubnights, and bringing some extremely high-profile guests to them, some of which were never-before-seen in this part of the world.

Hix is also rapidly developing his career as a radio DJ. He is the first and only urban club DJ from Ireland to have a show on national UK radio, broadcasting on the mighty BBC 1Xtra.

His music selection of RnB, funky Hip Hop and Neo-Soul, along with his heavy mixing, has caused a big stir on the airwaves. The strong bond with 1Xtra continues, and he can be seen spinning at some of their hot live events, most recently at the 1Xtra Comic Relief party at a secret location in the heart of London.

Hix is also a music journalist, and writes for Blues & Soul Magazine, which is the longest running black music publication in the world with 40 years in the game, published fortnightly in the UK. The iconic magazine recently re-invented its entire brand, and Hix was asked to produce a podcast in honour of Blues & Soul’’s 40th anniversary. The podcast turned out to be one of the sites most popular downloads, and is still available on the Blues and Soul website.

The pace at which DJ Hix’s career continues to rise is increasing by the day, and 2007 is sure to see him reach even more new heights. There’s no doubt that DJ Hix is on a fast-track to becoming one of the top RnB club and radio DJs in the UK and through his signing to Rap Ireland he should prove unstoppable.
