Renegade Riddims: Lens


Bursting onto the scene during 2018, Lens has joined the ever-growing crew of women taking Drum & Bass by storm. She is now rapidly becoming one to watch.

Ellen Lewin aka Lens has caught the eye of many, including us, through her distinctive Jungle and Drum & Bass selections and energy. She easily and effortlessly spans across different eras and sub-genres. You never know what to expect as she digs deep and throws in some absolute gems that have been long forgotten or not heard in ages. Surprises a plenty at every spin!


Having started out with a Brighton residency where she regularly opened for some of the scenes biggest headliners Lens has gone on to become a resident DJ for Hospital Records’ legendary ‘Hospitality’ events. She is also the touring DJ for MC Degs’ live showcase.

As well as appearing on top Drum & Bass lineups across Europe and the UK, Lens has also taken command of the Hospital Records long-running Rinse FM show, which airs monthly.

In the past year, Lens has had her eyes fixed firmly on production and is committing her time to crafting her sound in the studio. Watch this space!

We first met Lens when she performed at our local venue, Unit Nine MK last December when she supported Kings Of The Rollers. I remember being surprised at this young woman who absolutely killed it with her selections. Part of me thought “how does someone this young know all these old tracks” she blew my mind! I had to meet her so went back stage and had a really nice chat. We spoke about the possibility of doing a Renegade Riddims mix and she was keen from the off.

Fast forward to this summer, we had a date set and due to her increased popularity with live streams during the pandemic we had to move it to today. Trust me, you’re in for an absolute treat! So without further ado, check out Lens’ mix below and download it from here
