Wittyboy

Real Name:
Duwaine Whitfield
Profile:
Hailing from the city of Leeds, Wittyboy was influenced by a mix of Speed Garage, Hip Hop, House and Dancehall, which helped shape the sound he has today. Originally an up North ambassador of the Grime movement he gained respect as an MC, featuring on BBC 1Xtra and receiving air play from Mary Anne Hobbs amongst other radio DJ's.

With the 4x4, House and Garage resurgence in 2002-2007 he began producing more uptempo beats with melodic bass patterns, which later took on the industry name of "Bassline".

Wittyboy quickly began receiving support from key figures in the scene such as DJ EZ, DJ Q, Jamie Duggan, Shaun Banger Scott, FB & Zibba and more. It wasn't long before Wittyboy became one of the key players in the Bassline scene, with regular appearances at the infamous Niche nightclub in Sheffield and featured on the infamous Ministry of Sound CD: The Sound of Bassline along with Pure Garage, Fabric Live & Pure Bassline.

With a string of EP releases, official remix work began to arise from the likes of Roll Deep, Estelle, Sugar Babes, E-17, Craig David, Toddla T, Leon Jean Marie, Nitin Sahney, Ear Dis and loads more.

Today Wittyboy's sound is a mix of UK Garage, House and Bass while maintaining his Bassline roots.
