In 1998, Joni Heikkilä aka Dj Destroy began his journey & love affair with drum & bass music listening to the beats and sounds that emanated from the UK underground scene around that time. Citing his addiction to the music as the classic Virus Ed Rush & Optical tech monster “Wormhole”, the early dark twisted sounds Virus & Renegade Hardware provided the soundtrack to his submersion into dnb music and culture.
Whilst being a knowledgeable connoisseur of drum and bass, with an appreciation of tunes from across the wider spectrum of the music, Destroy draws his dj set inspirations from his favorite artists which include the likes of Dieselboy, Dj Hype, Ed Rush & Optical, The Upbeats. His record bag on an average evening is filled with the latest, and some timeless classics from labels such as Virus, Ram, Vision, Bad Taste, Lifted Music, Neosignal, Blackout ..
His dj style leans towards the more upfront and techy/dancefloor selection of the dnb genre, with dynamic fast mixing, utilizing his 19 years of technical experience behind the turntables with double drops.
