Join Dre, Ratpack, Wideboys, General Levy and friends from 7pm this coming Monday night.

Expect the unexpected!


D-Zone was started in an Essex bedroom in early 1990. It was a way of releasing harder dance material from founder Dré’s original label, Dance Zone. The label started the careers of many artists including including Micheal Gray, Jon Pearn (Bodyrox), Tim Laws (Gabrielle & Lighthouse Family), Kevin Beber & others and they also worked with Suburban Base, Reinforced, Strictly Underground and other labels exporting their tracks around the world.

More Info:



The Ratpack; Evenson Allen (MC) and Lipmaster Mark (DJ) have been instrumental in the development of dance music since the mid eighties. From London, UK (although Evenson was born in Montserrat), they were the first DJ and MC duo – which has now become a dance music institution in its own right – and were pioneers of the “OldSkool” concept and “NuSkool” breaks.
