Biography


Johnny B

Heavyweight Soundz Saturdays 4-6pm bi weekly

First introduced to underground dance music at the age of 6 by his late brother Richie B. He spent his early school years listening to tapes and tape packs from Centreforce, Don Fm and Fantazia.

A self taught turntablist he was mixing jungle , hip hop / rap , and house by 14 years old.

1996 he started playing small club nights and parties in Brixton and Camberwell which led onto squat parties until around  2001. After a couple of long breaks from the scene in the naughties he returned in 2013 with a target…mainstream Drum and Bass .

After a year of playing and guesting on numerous pirate stations he landed a residency with old skool rave legends Epidemik which opened the door for him to play at many of the gigs and venues he’d raved at as a teenager.

Late 2016 he guested on Flex FM before taking a bi weekly show. He now had the platform to display his hard earned knowledge and skills and was soon rewarded with a residency with the mighty Jungle Splash. Quickly becoming a crowd favourite he earned his place in the family and played in the DnB room for both Jungle splash and Garage splash nights.

2018 saw Flex fm win a legal broadcasting license after 25 years as one of the UK’s leading pirates. He was offered a contract and held down  his weekly ‘GO HARD’ show for 2 years.

Although hosting didn’t come natural he grew  into the role of presenter/host/dj and his shows included guest DJ’s, MC’s and interviews which  led him to new residencies with Format music DnB, Strategy and Unusual.

2020 and it’s time for something fresh! He’s teamed up with friend and fellow DnB DJ/Producer Critical D to form Heavyweight Soundz. Catch the show on UK Raw  bi weekly Saturday 4-6pm
