In:Formed - about us
We are In:Depth Events UK, A selection of some of the finest multi genre Dj's the south west has to offer.
The collective was born in 2019 following the strong connections made by the founding members when sharing the line-up together at a summer festival.
The group quickly established that they all felt the same desire burning from within to bring something fresh to Bristol's nightclub scene.
Forming initially as NLoT ( No Licks on Tick ) and after hosting a few events under this brand identity, post-event discussions led to a shift in direction and In:Depth Events UK was born. After a successful debut at Bristol's Basement 45, the In:Depth objective had been sealed by the team who were now ready to put their stack of plans into action.

Next up we have the man,the myth, the legend that is In:Depth Events UK founding member....
In 2014 he started doing a live online radio show from his bedroom on Pure Beats Radio. Injected with encouragement after receiving a huge amount of positive feedback, he then took on a second show on Vibe Radio UK's rotation playing Drum & Bass out to thousands of online listeners around the world.
Today Dirty Gent takes to the stage and the stream sporting a custom made, black anonymous mask with white features. The Gent, whether delivering a house, techno or DnB journey, has gone from strength to strength and conducts himself boldly and powerfully on stage with a magically glowing presence that needs to be seen and felt to be believed.
Dirty Gent is also part of the newly formed Dirty Bast***s alongside fellow In:Depth founder Lee Baston. This duo are craftsmen and masters of their art, from whom you can expect throttling techno selections, coupled with sublime mixing skills and crazy effects.
The Gent, with his busy guest mix, club gig and festival booking diary, shows no sign of slowing down his momentum as he continues on his path to share his musical passion and life with party people far and wide.
Genres ; ALL ( This man could mix you a cake and make it sound good ) !!
Involved in the scene since the early 90's, Bast's influences stem from Acid house through to techno with a bit of everything else inbetween. His sets are littered with breakbeat and old school samples, which are generally accompanied by heavy kick drums across his playlist.
Frequenting the free party scene in his younger years, the elder statesman of the In:Depth crew has returned to working back where he belongs; behind the decks. Over the last 5 years he has been reinstating his reputation and has shared line ups with the likes of North Base, Shaun Dean and FooR whilst also forging strong ties with Bristols underground community. In particular, his alliance with DJ DirtyGent, with whom he can be found alongside bringing banging techno vibes to the dancefloors as the explosive Dirty Bast***s.
Regardless of the genre you find him playing, Bast will take you on an unforgettable journey, building towards that beautiful moment where he'll drop enough euphoria to make your soul shiver.
