It's Friday night party time, come join in



Growing up in the streets of South London (Wandsworth to be exact), and having a much older Brother and older Cousins, it was always apparent that ADB (Adrian Burrowes to his family) would be into music.

It was also inevitable that this interest in music would lead to him being a DJ. It all began around 1977 when a young ADB bought his very first decent record, influenced by seeing the aforementioned dancing a Family party to it, Roy Ayers Running Away, would set him on a path of no return.

ADB started doing local house parties, as well as playing the Alto Saxophone at school, and music was well set in the blood.

Around this time he also started attended clubs, Leaving early from school on a Friday (don’t tell his Mum though) to attend the legendary session at Crackers, as well as attending Saturday sessions at the 100Club, on Oxford Street, and a more local club Cheeky Pete’s in Richmond.

ADB first foray into Radio, came in 1986, when hearing a Station called Starpoint. That first Show following on from JIGS, now of Choice fame, was to become his show for many years to come. The BAD BOOGIE SHOW was broadcast on a Thursday through to Sunday Nights, to a loyal following over the next 3 years.

These exposures lead to playing out at some venues, notably The Pub Continental, Wansdworth Road, Ziggys in Streatham, and Crazy Larry’s of Kings Road alongside Colourful’s Chris Philips, and 1Xtra’s Wilber Wilberforce.

After leaving Starpoint, in 1990 ADB did a weekend show on Fame FM, for about a year. Since then AD has been active in music still doing a few Production things, and in 2000 started up his own production company Bad Boogie Productions.

ADB brings his eclectic mix of Boogie, Rare Groove, Two Step, Soulful Garage and all good grooves to Colourful with his Stoned Soul Picnic, a show named after a 1968 Roy Ayers album. Not only a tribute to his favourite artists, but a description of the mixture of goodies he selects from his musical basket.
