Bass Traffic

The people behind Bass Traffic have been running underground events in Newcastle since 1994.
Most memorable were the nights at Legends, The Telegraph and more notably the Cooperage where they dared to use the 2 rooms to add a Hardcore room to the Drum&Bass one they were known for.
Things are run by Dj id who has also been building his own monster sound system to use at the events.
Id has a 18 year history in the harder scene but fell in love with Drum&Bass in 1996.

The Headliner!

Dj Sappo

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 dj sets across the country. With early releases on some of the UK's 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 & Bass including Dopeman, Ding Dong Bass and Wheel Up.
Sappo was one of the first producers to use mc's in jungle tracks to huge success and the first to use mc's Trigga, Bassman And Spyda on vinyl!! In 1998 Sappo set up Advisory Records, Over recent years as an artist Sappo has sold over 250000 records, both through his own labels Advisory and Prohibition and 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 the USA, Germany, France, Austria, Sweden and Estonia.
Sappo also hosted his own weekly dnb show with BBC radio 1xtra for 4 years which was known as the only 4hr National dnb show to which he gathered a huge loyal following here in the UK and abroad!!
