Bassi began DJ’ing in 2006 after building up an extensive vinyl collection of classic drum and bass records. In a time when it was standard procedure to learn the craft on belt-drive turntables Bassi learnt his craft the hard way and gained experience DJing at house parties and club nights in and around London. It was in 2008 whilst at University Bassi became a promoter and started ‘Flexout’ at Lincolns Studen Union: Engine Shed. He bought the likes of Andy C, Roni Size, Shy FX, High Contrast, Spectrasoul & Breakage to the City and in 2011 turned the popular club night into a record label (Flexout Audio) releasing early music from friends Ed:it, Philth, Kasra, Spyda, dRamatic & dBaudio.
With a vision to form a core group of exciting new artists pushing drum and bass from the deep end Bassi continuously improved the output and brand of his record label which is now a household name to junglists over the globe.
As a DJ he is a journey man, harmonically blending tones and textures from the most cutting-edge (often unreleased) drum and bass of the moment mixed with gems from the past that are in line with ‘the Flexout sound’ he has created through his label over the past 7 years. In 2018, with the record label hosting rooms at the world-famous Fabric nightclub as well as numerous other events around the world the future looks bright for the drum and bass visionary, DJ and label boss from London.
