Headlining this week’s Glitched event, with DJ Argue, is the one and only Marcus Nasty. We sat him down for a quick chat.

You’ve had a long and impressive career so far, what have been some of your standout moments over the years?

My whole career till this point is one big moment. I live music 24/7, it’s all I do and all I want to do. Everything I do involves it or came from it and I plan to do it till I’m pushing up daisies.

When did you first realise that you wanted to be a DJ?

When my balls dropped!

You have been a massive influence in the underground music scene. What genres excite you right now?

Right now, it’s all about UK Funky, Grime, Bass, UKG and Jump Up!

In recent years, UK artists have made a huge wave in the global music pool. Who have been some of the frontrunners flying the flag?

Honestly, everyone. It’s been such a huge movement for the UK right now and everyone involved has played their part.

Who should be on everyone’s radar right now?

Redhot, you may already know, is on fire. There’s ScarDuggy, DJ TinoBethBethBeth, Georgia, DJ Stolen, Tailor Jae, CoxonMic Man Frost, Dizzle Kid and Slowie!

You’re headlining Glitched at Boxpark Shoreditch this week, what can the fans expect from you?

A bloody good set. It’s gonna be a lot of fun.

What does the rest of 2018 have in store for you?

More progression in UK music. It’s all about moving forward and evolving. 

What was the last song you listened to?

It was ‘Step 20‘ by Wiley & Albzzy. It’s also the last tune on this ScarDuggy mix.
