DJ and Producer based in the UK. Dj-ing since 1988 and producing since 1992. Started producing rave/jungle 12″s in 1992 and released a series of white labels called ‘Junk 001’, 002, 003 and so on up to volume 12. Also distributed a series of rave mix tapes starting in 1991 known as ‘Junk Hardcore’.
In 1994 produced a series of house/hard house 12″s under the artist name of ‘Blister Sisters’ and ran the house label called ‘Completely Suitable’, this ran from 1994 to 1997 and had 14 releases, some of these were white labels.
In the early 90’s produced a series of tapes called ‘Breakbeat Mix’ , these were mixes of hip hop breakbeats and other samples, produced on a sampler rather than turntables they were like very long tracks rather than DJ mixes.
In 1996 the best parts of the ‘Breakbeat Mixes’ were compiled on a vinyl album called ‘Breaker Breaks Volume One’. This album also had sections of film samples and hip hop noises for scratch DJ’s. The label this was released on was known as ‘Second To None’ which was the B-Boy crew of which DJ Junk was a member and so used that name for the new label. The ‘Breaker Breaks’ albums were followed with other volumes to reach volume 6.
The ‘Second To None’ label which was run by DJ Junk also had other releases – ‘B-Boy Anthems Vol 1-6’, ‘Weapons Of Mass Deckstruction Vol 1-4’, ‘Prone Breaks’, ‘Ultimate B-Boy Funk’, ‘Trouble With Funk’ plus several other LP’s and 12″s.
