Spotlight Mix: ODCEE
Wayne Harvey aka ODCEE has been affiliated with music and surrounded by creative people within the music scene for a considerably long period of time. On his first pair of decks in 2000, he was introduced to mixing and playing Garage, which was then, currently, the pioneering musical movement.
On discovering his unique mixing skills alongside his relentless passion and love for Drum N Bass, he knew from then, that this was his desired career path. After building a weekly collection of vinyl over a dated period of time, he made a name for himself showcasing his skills successfully at local house parties and youth clubs. His hand in Drum N Bass production began whilst attending the DJ Academy, Luton, three times a week. With the aid of Cubase SX, he learned the basics in order to self teach and create the music he loved, whilst helping out with the local record store Street Sounds. In growth, personally and professionally under the name of DJ Odyssey, he began to take his aspirations seriously as a breakthrough Drum N Bass producer, and even invested in a personal studio. While playing on local radio shows, he soon connected with the legendary MC Shabba D, and local artist MC Fire, and collaborated in the birth of the notorious club night ‘Carnage’ in 2007 with the rest of the Blackleaf Recordings team.
DJ Odyssey then made the decision to take some time away from his studio and place his premise on important business ventures to develop himself. This was during the paradigm of the Dubstep era; complimented by Electro House being at the forefront of the music scene. Just as this grew to be more mainstream, it wasn’t long until he returned with a fresh perspective on his contribution to the music sector and a drive to creating ground-breaking music once again.
However, DJ Odyssey wanted to innovate his artist name, to gain a fresh presence moving forward, he devised O.D.Cee, which was a turning point for him as he was keen on the name and decided to rebrand himself. Towards the end of 2014, O.D.Cee made a new 4-deck house mix that inspired him to embrace his music career once again.
