..UK Garage No1

Dj EZ. The story........In 1989, at the age of 15, EZ (known at the time as Easy O) started his radio career on a pirate radio station called Dance 93FM playingHouse music, where he remained for 4 years. In early 1994, EZ set up his own pirate radio station based in Tottenham called Dimension FM, playing mostly Hardcore dance music, Rave music and House music. Dimension FM didn't last long due to being closed down by the authorities. EZ then landed himself a 4 hour Saturday and Sunday morning show from 8.00 am to 12.00 pm on another pirate station - Freek 101.8 FM (it was at this time that he changed his name from Easy O to EZ). As EZ started getting more well known he was given extra show time and was also made a member of the station's management team. EZ then started his own weekly club night called Club Z at the Gas Club in central London. DJ bookings for EZ started to soar and he was playing an average of 4 clubs a night every weekend.

EZ's first time on commercial radio was as a guest on high profile Kiss 100 DJ Steve Jackson's breakfast show (Morning Glory) and house DJs Bobby & Steve's show. The guest appearances became more and more frequent and EZ was offered the chance to stand in for Tuff Jam on a few occasions when they were not able to attend to perform their 2 hour show.

In November 1999, Kiss 100 offered EZ a permanent show on Tuesday mornings from 2.00 am to 4.00 am. Due to its success the show was moved to a Friday night (Saturday morning) slot from midnight to 2.00 am, directly after Bobby & Steve's show.

In 2000, after coming ninth place in a Kiss 100 top DJ of the year poll, DJ EZ was given a primetime show on Saturday nights from 7.00 pm to 9.00 pm, called 'Saturday Satisfaction', and another show on Friday nights from 10.00 pm to 11.00 pm, called 'The Hour of Power'.

In 2002, his Saturday show changed to the earlier time of 5.00 pm to 7.00 pm.

DJ EZ currently hosts a popular UK Garage radio show called 'Destination Weekend' on London's Kiss 100 (also available nationwide onDAB, Freeview, Sky, Virgin Media and online) every Friday night from 10pm. He does a 2 hour show packed with old skool classics and the latest tunes from the UK garage world and featuring occasional special guests. With him always is his sidekick Winston.

As of Friday 4 September 2009 the Destination Weekend show was expanded to air across the entire Kiss network. This includes South Wales and South West England, covered by Kiss 101 and the East of England, covered by Kiss 105.

From 8 March 2008 until November 1, 2008, DJ EZ hosted a second Kiss radio show titled 'The Bassline Mix'. This was broadcast on Saturday nights from 10.00 pm to 11.00 pm across the Kiss Network (Kiss 100, Kiss 101 and Kiss 105-108). The show featured UK Garage music and Bassline anthems mixed non-stop by EZ.
