On A Mission has been running “south coast warehouse parties” at The Mo’club in Southampton for several years, and they’re kicking off 2014 with this monster of a line up packing the venue with some serious drum and bass names. Here goes: DJ Hazard & Harry Shotta, Serial killers & MC Fearless, Ripraw & IC3, Klip & Outlaw MC Hazza, Blackley, MC Shakez & Maximas, Whitey & Skydro, Hannibal B2B Blakey with Hazza Kendal, Drop Ya Jaw & Mc Dazzler.


Scott Molloy (DJ Hazard) is one of those people for whom drum & bass was the soundtrack to a youth well spent. Born in Birmingham and raised in nearby Aston, Molloy was caught by the bug that was seemingly passed down through the ages, through plasterboard walls and shared experience. Funding his growing habit for collecting records by working day jobs in factories, restaurants and delivering pizzas Molloy made a name for himself as DJ Hazard by playing the clubs of his native Birmingham throughout the ‘90s. Building on his bookings and general success he took to Kool FM Midlands alongside MCs Biggie and Acapello to broadcast his sets, broadening his reach out past his immediate surroundings. Following a slew of self funded releases and 12”s on Formation Records and his own imprint, Radius, Molloy was getting play from the big name d&b DJs of the time including one DJ Hype, who would release several of his singles on his Ganja Records and go on to make him the first non Ganja Kru member to be signed exclusively to his True Playaz camp. The recognition Molloy received from the team behind Playaz has proved to be one of his most pivotal moments with the platform the label gave him serving to be an ample jumping off point. It gave tracks such as ‘Use Your Brain’, ‘Get The Fuck Up’ and ‘Mr Happy’ the machine they needed to become the jump up anthems they are today across a scene that spans the globe.
