DJ Sappo has been mixing since the tender age of 15. Self taught, he was driven by a passion for beats and developed a unique style that would become his trademark. In 1993, he began producing tracks that would be incorporated into sets across the country. With early releases on some of the UKs most respected labels such as Flex and Intalex, influences ranging from Hip Hop to Detroit Techno and streetsoul were revealed. This, together with a deep understanding of technical engineering allowed Sappo to put together some of the most memorable tracks to emerge in the formative years of UK drum n bass including Dopeman, Ding Dong Bass and Wheel Up. Sappo was one of the first producers to use MCs in jungle tracks to huge success and the first to work with MCs TRIGGA, BASSMAN AND SPYDA. IN 1998, Sappo set up Advisory Records, Over recent years Sappo has sold over 250,000 records, both through his own labels Advisory and Prohibition, as well as on majors such as World Dance, Frontline, Intalex Formation, Flex, Rinse Out, Reformed, Global Thang, Emotif, V Recordings and many others. He has played at venues all over the world including in the USA, Germany, France,Austria, Sweden, Estonia at World Dance and Global Gathering. Sappo also hosted his own weekly Drum 'n' Bass show with BBC Radio 1Xtra for four years which was known as the only 4-hour national Drum N Bass show, to which he gathered a huge loyal following around the world.
