QED aka P. LOW now based in Dalston, has been DJing since 1984 and
even before that it had somehow always seemed like there would be a
reason for the all the vinyl digging. Starting on two £30 decks from
Richer Sounds and the basic mixer from Tandy he set about teaching himself skills and honing techniques.
Whilst at school he took
his decks, mixer and records on the bus to school, to play at
lunchtimes, then progressed to organising and playing out at private parties, schools, Leeds' West Indian
Centre, Trades Club, Equinox Club and Woodhouse's Methodist Hall, W.M.C.
and even a Waltzer at Hyde Park fairground.
Not long after starting
to DJ, QED collected together some equipment by fair means or foul and
tried producing. After that QED turned to
encouraging, helping and passing on what he had learned to budding DJs and Producers
around his home-town.
QED has long been a regular at Braintax studio sessions where he has advised, listened to and guided the group through the recording process. QED having studied a degree in Music Technology, provides Low Life Records with invaluable technical knowledge. Having always been into the creative side of music, QED has produced instrumental Hip Hop tracks to a very high standard.
Chances are if you have been reading about UK Hip Hop on the web QED has had a
hand in there somewhere, whether it be on this website, the Low Life Records
website or the massive UKHH.com where QED was a founding member and to this day
does much of the behind the scenes technical work as well as endlessly
formatting, editing and uploading.
