His DJ career has touched a long list of UK venues and has spanned a variety of genres including d&b, dubstep, breakbeat, hip-hop, hard dance, hardcore, freeform and techno. He plays dark & jump-up d&b and dubstep but expect surprises. Diversity is his middle name and he knows what an audience wants better than they know themselves. His darker drum & bass productions with producer Defazed are released through Sub-Tek records but expect solo d&b and dubstep releases on other labels. Esion met Frequency in Bristol in 2007 and they instantly hit it off with a mutual love of jump-up d&b. Their collaborative club night, Malfunction, has gone from strength to strength since conception in 2008, with acts including Adam F, DJ Noize, Deranged, Model101, Afghan Headspin, Angel Farringdon, Deficit and TrackSuit Mafia. Expect a fast & furious blend of a variety of styles, always up-beat and jumping but with Frequency adding a fresh injection of liquid funk and dark-side twists from Esion. www.myspace.com/defazedesion http://soundcloud.com/djesion http://soundcloud.com/frequency13 http://www.myspace.com/subtekrecords Didn't work?

The pair met a few years back and started clubbing together regularly, sharing a mutual love of dark, hard, techy dnb and dubstep. Automate currently runs a weekly radio show, sponsored by Intense Records, which aims to showcase both up & coming and established dnb, dubstep and breakbeat dj's. Recent guests include MistaNoize, Katanga, Displaced, Esion, Bigga & Drum Monkeys. A bi-monthly London club night is planned for early 2011 with possible record label to follow.
