Blowpop DJ’s

Since the early beginnings back in 1996 the BlowPop crew has consistently put on top nights with the cream of DJing talent from home and abroad.

Flying in the face of the house-based music policies of many of Bristol’s big venues, BlowPop put on breakbeat, hip hop and reggae attracting Mr. Scruff, Mark Rae, Jon Carter, the Wiseguyz, Propellerheads, Nightmares on Wax, Renegade Soundwave, and the Freestylers to the early parties.

Two years later when Julian Smith and Charles Newman, (behind Bristol’s Head2Head) joined founder John Stapleton and BlowPop moved into the big league.

As the night’s reputation grew, lots more artists were attracted to perform – from old hands like Afrika Bambaataa to new stars like Krafty Kuts and the Plump DJ’s.
