Eddy Funkster aka U-Ome
U-Ome started on his musical path back in 1989, when he got his first hip-hop tape ever, which led him to become an avid music fan for life. It wasn’t until 1995 that he heard a Drum and Bass song that he instantly got chills up his spine and knew what he was going to do. Jungle music back then was so fresh and new that he had to find out more about it. So, he decided to buy a sampler and drum machine in late 1997 and try and figure out how to make those crazy sounds.
The Dubstep Bug…
Albert never thought much of DJing, just the production side of things, but he was an avid record collector and decided to start DJing out in 1999. The Dubstep bug didn’t bite until late 2005 when he heard some dark tunes with a Drum and Bass twist. He was hooked instantly. Starting the Dubstep label, Steps In Time Recordings, U-Ome started putting out releases that were coming from the US. Teaming up with 6Blocc (aka R.A.W./BBoy-3000), who was also getting attracted to Dubstep at the same time, they started to harness their love of DnB, Hip-Hop, Dub/Reggae, Funk, Electro and ALL types of music into their version of Dubstep. Under the moniker HOODZ, they still continue to produce tunes with a unique twist.
