Deekline's nominations for 'Outstanding Contribution' and 'Best DJ' in this year's Bass Music Awards comes as no surprise. His impact on the genre has been colossal, over the course of his career he's released iconic tracks and developed stand out record labels.

In 1998 Nicholas Annand aka Deekline was the owner of London's biggest pirate radio station Flex FM and the following year he set up Rat Records to release 'I Don't Smoke', which is considered a seminal record in the world of bass. That same label now pushes out music from the likes of Stanton Warriors, Wiley and DJ Fresh.

He continues to champion the best in garage, beakbeat, bass and everything inbetween, introducing fans of the genre old and new to some of the hottest tracks on the circuit. We caught up with him ahead of the BMAs.
