Hostile is one of the Drum and Bass scene’s lyrical hosts. He has a unique lyrical style that portrays not only his size and stature but also his knowledge of the music. As a person Hostile offers quick witted intellect and sharp humour, which he successfully carries onto stage, enhancing every DJ he has ever supported.
Back in 2005 Hostile began MCing over weekly radio broadcasts on DnBNoize radio which eventually landed him his first ever gig at Kombination Funk, one of Nottingham’s longest running darkside club nights. But Hostile was never new to the game when he begun hosting in 2005. He had already accumulated a decade of musical experience, with a keen ear for music production in DnB, Hip Hop and experimental dance music. He also DJ’d at many events since 1999 and represented many independent record labels under his infamous DYAZIDE alias. These years of experience have enabled hostile to build a great respect and discipline for the music he loves, opting for clarity and content over speed, status, and quantity.
After many years of hard work Hostile has finally found success with collaborations on a number of tracks with artists including DJE, Smyla, The Sect, Lethal, Eiton, Treo, Phil Source, Dean Rodell, Qo, The Clamps, Kano, Displaced Paranormals, KLR, plus many more, and holds various residencies at main underground Drum and Bass events and record labels such as MUTE:8 Recordings, Trust In Music, Intent2Supply, Therapy Sessions, Vampire Records, Cyber Crunk Records, Basstardz, etc.
A chance meeting with The Sect at Therapy Sessions led to a brand new working relationship, Hostile’s ‘less is more’ approach on the mic merging perfectly with The Sect’s relentless, militant DJ style. This has left dancefloors accross the globe battered and bruised, a string of studio collaborations and mutual respect for each other’s craft has further cemented the union.
All this, combined with an unlimited work ethic, sharp lyrical content and a delivery that rivals most established MCs on the scene, has secured Hostile his place as the official host/MC of The Sect Music.
The rest has yet to be written…
