Justin Robertson's tastes have always been catholic though in 2011 you would be hard pushed to find a musician working successfully in areas as diverse as dancehall, house and art pop. Justin is a true modernist: he excels as a DJ of international repute; is a creator of bespoke acid house; a remixer for the likes of Steve Mason, The Mystery Jets, Radio 4, Bjork,The Whip ,Cherry Ghost and Felix Da Housecat and, has co-written an album with studio boffin Gez Dewar under the name Thee Earls,and most recently is enjoying great success and a new generation of admirers with his latest moniker The Deadstock 33s .
As a DJ Justin plays a mix of techno and electronic house. He also plays more eclectic sets featuring his love of reggae, northern soul and pop at nights like Sunday Best.
Justin will continue to wear several hats, metaphorical as well as some stylish real ones!

"He clearly knows the formula to make ecstatic synth jams that effortlessly weave old school house and modern techno... perfect dancefloor material," said Dummy. D/R/U/G/S has toured with Squarepusher, Digitalism, did RBMA's amazing showcase on the London Eye, and his latest release on stonking Moshi Moshi imprint Tender Age has had raves from NME to Mixmag to the Pigeon Post, which described the EP as "travelling through early house sounds and ending up at a who-gives-a-fuck party. Sublime." Very happy about having D/R/U/G/S at the venue - yes, boom, tish - but actually, we've wanted him to play for a long, long time...
" I am beginning to feel this nocturnal extistence tell on me.
It is destroying my nerve. I start at my own shadow, and am full of all sorts me horrible imaginings..."
