Renegade Riddims: LIZ-E
Elizabeth Welch aka LIZ-E is a self-made producer who first discovered her love for drum & bass after attending raves at the legendary Sanctuary in Milton Keynes around 2003. Following on from these early encounters she developed a huge passion for the music and decided she wanted to take up DJing.
After doing early guest slots on UK bass Radio, and taking various opportunities playing in clubs she landed a long term and very well supported weekly radio show on Intobeats. This is where she continued to spread her unique sound and style and also started to incorporate the (at the time) newly emerging dubstep sound.
2010 was the year she started to seriously pursue another passion in writing and producing her own tracks. Enhancing her skills she was signed to the drum and bass label Smokin Riddims and has also released Dubstep tracks on the record label Punch.
In 2012 she really started to make an impression in and around the drum and bass scene following the releases of ‘The Witches’ ‘Time & Space’ and ‘Fred’ on Smokin Riddims. After starting to write an EP for Smokin Riddims which she wanted to be as diverse as possible to show all the styles she enjoys, a couple of the completed tracks were sent to BBC Radio 1’s Dj Friction.
Friction immediately started to play her track ‘The Last Time’ on his Radio 1 Show and it created a hive of positive activity which led to him signing LIZ-E to SGN Ltd. She was the first female artist to be signed to the Shogun Audio Camp. LIZ-E started receiving support from prime time Radio One DJs such as Annie Mac and also UKF.
In 2014 LIZ-E was awarded Best Female Artist at The National Drum & Bass Awards by public vote. Following this she dropped her next single on SGN:LTD ‘Need you’ and ‘On my mind’ which were heavily supported by big names such as Toddlah T, Mistajam and DJ Hazard.
With this ongoing success and a string of releases LIZ-E was spotted by Futurebound which lead to a deal with Viper Recordings. Further support in the drum and bass scene led to her touring Europe reaching a wider audience and featuring on multiple compilations.
Becoming more established LIZ-E started experimenting in different sub-genres of drum and bass which led to her touring with well-known brand Shadow Demon Coalition.
Kicking off 2019 LIZ-E released a single on Biological Beats and was heavily supported by artists such as; Noisia, Rene Le Vice, Macky Gee and Nicky Blackmarket. Dominating her ongoing success, LIZ-E was approached by Rampage Belgium as one of the first female producers to showcase, where she performed a B2B2B with Harriet Jaxxon and Tekitoka. She continues to fly the flag for female producers with upcoming performances such as at fabric London.
