DJ Troopa starting DJing at the tender age of 13, where he was DJing drum and bass
on a local pirate station called Bass FM 107.5. His first ever gig was age 14 and
he played at "AL's Bar" in Barry. He soon started to get bookings and his next gig
was in the Owain Glyndwr Cardiff, which was organised by DJ Raheem (KISS 101). Raheem
saw potential in the young artist and put Troopa on to a guy called Julian black.
Julian ran drum and bass nights in a nightclub called Forum. Troopa was a resident
for a year at Forum and then he began to start DJing UK garage music.
Troopa found the strain of getting a regular DJ spot in Cardiff, so he began to start
running his own events. He ran "Jamming", "Pluto's promotion", Sexy Sunday and he
then teamed up with DJ Fabion (Tremorfire Dubz) to create "Essential" Which was a
good success. Troopa then became a Lacosanosttra, suncity, garage nation pure essence
resident playing alongside the likes of DJ EZ, Heartless Crew, Roll Deep Crew, Cameo,
Nasty crew, MC Viper, an then getting personal booking’s for b/day bash’s for big
names dj’s such as martin liberty larner an mc dappa!
Since teaming up with the foundation crew and dj partner cluedo they have formed
a strong friendship and started to work as a team in the music scene! By becoming
good radio dj’s and presenter’s on www.urbancircle.co.uk they heard of Radio Cardiff
coming about and decided to approach them to see if they could get an opportunity
to have a show on there! And that's how the pair got a very good show every Monday
If you listen to UK Garage music and you live in Wales then you will be familiar
with these guys. Between them they have over 25 years DJ’ing experience and are the
two DJ’s from Wales’ premier Garage sound `The Foundation Family’.
They pride themselves
on promoting the Welsh Garage scene to the UK and the global community. So on their
show they play out plenty of home-grown music. As well as the home-grown aspect
of their show, you will hear all the latest and biggest tunes from all Garage genres,
Niche/Bassline, 4x4, 2step, Grime & Dubstep, also the hugely popular `Old School’
When broadcasting the guys like to enjoy themselves in the studio! which
instantly stands out to you as a listener. Combine this with a heavy selection (mixed
live every week!) and Cluedo’s upbeat presentation style and you are ready for two
hours of 100% UK Garage music.
