Name, where are you from?
DJ Rogue - Bristol, UK.

Describe your style in three words?
Hip Hop, designer, casual.

What’s the best gig you’ve ever been to?
When I DJ’d for Dead Prez in 1999 at The Fleece in Bristol, when they first dropped 'Hip Hop' I was doing the sound check scratching to the instrumental of the biggest tune of the time with Dead Prez dancing around and bigging up my scratches - surreal.

If you could be on the line up with any two bands in history?
Jimi Hendrix and Ol' Dirty Bastard on stage at the same time, just because it would be insane and the after party would be one to tell the grandkids LOL.

Which subcultures have influenced you?
Hip hop, Ragga, Dubstep / Grime - I don’t think 'Mr Mention' by Buju Banton left my Walkman the whole time I was 12 haha.

If you could spend an hour with anyone from history?
Kanye West, so he can drop them jewels on me.

Of all the venues you’ve played, which is your favourite?
Bournemouth Opera House - a crazy huge building.

Your greatest unsung hero or heroine in music?
Stepchild - MC, singer, DJ, breaker, producer.
