A little bit about


DJ ILLSon is the brainchild behind ‘The Beat Goes On’ at Dead Wax Social Brighton every month and also founder and head honcho of Sound Surgery Records founded in 1999.

ILLSon started his DJ career back in 1988 playing Hip-Hop and Electro beats, then progressing to electronic beats as music evolved. ILLSon has also released various tracks, and signed for Pias records, quality control recordings, pranged records and more before starting his own label Sound Surgery records releasing records under pseudonyms Dr’s of funk (Dr Prozak), The Avanjelist, Skinny Asthmatics & D-Committee. Now ILLSon DJs in Brighton (Berlin-Brighton, TBGO, Guest mixes on Juice FM & Code South, Artista studios) but best of all his monthly show on Radio4a ‘The Beat Goes On Radio show’.

Tune in on Sundays for an eclectic journey through his vinyl archives, past, present and new, but just playing great tunes from all genres…think Giles Peterson meets Wu Tang meets James Brown, Jeff Mills and Pink Floyd in the same room!
