OnemanTuesday, February 7, 2012 / Nanci
Oneman plays a lot of old tunes, an exception in a scene obsessed with the perpetual “moving forward never backwards” motion of dubplate culture. Again, as such a DJ, he should be confined to the ranks of the many DJs out there. But in 2007 and into 2008, Oneman most definitely moved ahead of the pack. In 2007, getting booked for London’s two flagship clubs, Forward (in the warm up slot) and DMZ (in the closing slot), he’d already built a considerable following with his show and sets at illegal raves.
‘I just wanna make people dance and people dance to good beats,’ says Oneman.
