DJ Harmony Dubplate Special radio show rescheduled for 3 July

Earlier this year a planned dubplates radio special of Adventures In Sound And Music (The Wire's slot on Resonance FM) had to be postponed. Now, we're happy to announce the show will go ahead next week, on 3 July, hosted by Derek Walmsley with special guest Lee Bogush.

In the early 1990s you'd find Bogush's name on 12"s from the Moving Shadow label, released under the name DJ Harmony. Since these earliest days in the jungle scene, he's been collecting dubplates of many of the most exclusive (and often unreleased) drum ’n’ bass tracks around – an obsession that's continued right up to the present day. Over two decades of trading, purchasing and blagging through his extensive contacts in the business, he's forged a collection of hundreds of dubplates that traces an alternative and untold history of jungle.

Bogush will be in the studio on 3 July, to talk through the collection and how it came together. He'll be digging deep into his bag of plates to play some of the most sought after tracks from back in the day, many of which coined the language of drum ’n’ bass but were forgotten or written out of official histories of the scene, talking through his life in drum 'n' bass from behind the record shop counter and on the roster of one of the great labels.
