irk is a British DJ renowned for his word-twisting, culture-jamming scratch skits and mixtapes. He is a guest-mix-contributor on game-changing London record label Ninja Tune’s legendary Solid Steel Radio show. In achieving this position he has joined an astonishing list of guest mix contributors, including artists such as DJ Shadow, Cut Chemist, Steinski, Coldcut, Caspa, Kid Koala, Company Flow, Kraddy, Freestylers and many more. His mixes are amongst the most listened-to; no mean feat on a show which boasts a twenty-year history of ‘Broadcasting the Broadest Beats’, and whose name Ninja Tune proudly shares with its official mix releases from label treasures Amon Tobin, DJ Kentaro, Mr Scruff and Bonobo, among others. irk won the much-coveted Solid Steel Guest Mix Of The Year title in 2010. His live performances always impress and often astound; and although you can never be sure precisely which virtual Serato crates he’ll be digging through, the one thing you’re guaranteed is a raucous, massively entertaining, scratched-up rampage through the best the world of music has to offer. Expect the finest breaks, hiphop, drum and bass, electro, glitch and dubstep – the good, the badass and the downright dirty tamed and brought together under one roof, moulded in to an original jaw-dropping slew of sonic revelry and served up on two Technics platters.
