In December 2015 Bugzy embarked on his first ‘sold out’ UK headline tour, then performed alongside Ratboy, Drench and Bloc Party on the 2016 N.M.E Tour.

Nearly 25 years in the game and his selection is as impeccable as ever, still mixing as faultlessly on two turntables as he ever did,.
It’s as a DJ that he is best known. Aside from his live performances Randall has been commissioned by Mixmag, Drum & Bass Arena, Dreamscape, Ministry of Sound/AWOL and many others for studio mixes.

GQ has always been a DJ's MC, seeing his role as a middle man between the DJ and the crowd
rather than constantly demanding centre stage. GQ’s lyrical style and delivery has influenced many of
