Tommy Gold

ßONE SODA ノノ’s very own Tommy Gold supplies us with a classic showing. The resident of Phonox (with Mantra every Saturday) has a knack for grooving and unwinding in one smooth mix. Check his whynow take here.

Tibi Dabo

Barcelona-born, Berlin-dwelling Tibi Dabo (aka Max Guardans) has a pronounced artistry. Like the Catalonian mountains his Tibi Dabo project is named after, Guardans stands confident and collected in his abilities. Already respected by the likes of Damian Lazarus, this 22-year old is bound for beauty and glory. Listen to his mix to see and hear why.

Joshua James (Phantasy Sound)

Joshua James will keep you moving, with his perfect blend of intensity and delicacy. The XOYO resident’s second release (Journeys in Love) came out on Erol Alkan’s Phantasy – a sure-fire reason, should you need one, to check out his whynow mix now. His latest track Marlene is out on the 28th February with a pair of remixes from Deetron.


AOB takes inspiration from his Middle Eastern roots, which, along with his expanding music knowledge, feeds his divine sound. Listen to his mix for whynow, which, with some unreleased material thrown in, is as intricate as it is pulsating.

Lauren Ralph

DJ, producer and all-round don Lauren Ralph came through for a mix. The man from Brum brought his typically spirited sound to our studio, with tracks by Jorja Smith, Akon, his own, and more.

Hardt Antoine

Reculture chief Hardt Antoine blends tech house, deep house, minimal and more into a mix that’ll make you move. From the whynow studio, the French-Jamaican Londoner has been at it again, finding time amongst his schedule of planning some of London’s best nights.

Jada La Reign

Hailing from Brooklyn, New York JADALAREIGN is making waves. Her high-energy, floor-filling sets have led her to play her first Boiler Room set and be part of more through the grassroots radio platform, Halfmoon BK. In London for the first time, whynow captured her sound.

Nick Castle

Nick Castle is the founder of Labyrinth, which grew from nights at Notting Hill Arts Club to curating events at some of London’s most prestigious venues. With a penchant for house music, we welcome him with open arms to the whynow studio.


Argentinian-born DJ and producer Blixa brings his forceful sound and seamless mixing to the whynow studio. Mainly handling electronic and techno, Blixa is unafraid to occasionally let his Hispanic heritage through. He is a London-based resident, 1020radio regular, and co-founder of POLAR, a platform for local, up-and-coming DJs.

Joshua Murfitt

Already a regular of Phonox and XOYO, Josh Murfitt is going places. With a versatile track selection and a fearlessness to experiment, Murfitt has already played alongside Motor City Drum Ensemble, Jacques Greene and Kyle Hall.
