All OUTREACH DANCE DJ’s and presenters are people from or with a strong affinity to electronic and dance music.
They’ve all very kindly given up their time, and volunteered to produce and present wonderful regular programmes on OUTREACH DANCE. Some of them had previous radio experience, other’s didn’t, but they were all willing to join in and give it a try, as way to share something positive, entertaining and and fun.
|Osman Sen-Chadun aka Oz or DJ Oz|
I'm the founder and Managing Director of Outreach Radio and Outreach Dance.. I've been involved in radio, TV and online broadcasting for nearly 35 years, mostly on the business & technical side, but also as a radio presenter on pirate radio (in a past life!) & on community radio.
I'm passionate about all types of music, particularly Reggae & World Music, and personally specialise in 'tropical music genres'; Reggae, Sega, Soca, Zouk, Reggaeton, etc - my parents are from Mauritius, so I guess its in my blood! I listen to everything, from Reggae to Classical & Opera, Jungle/Drum n Bass & Hardcore/Techno to French, Italian or Latino, Electro & Hip-Hop to Balkan, Folk Music or Country Pop, and lots more.
I started Lockdown FM as a way to support our local area during the difficult time of the Coronavirus pandemic. The amazing success of this service, and awesome team of people who came forward to volunteer, led me to form Outreach Radio, then Outreach Dance. We are a standalone local operated company, and not part of any media group.

You can catch Oz for the Island Vibrations show every Saturday from 11am-1pm.
Hi, I’m Matt.
DJ / Producer / Travel Enthusiast
After Many years working at sea on cruise ships I have now come back to root myself to land life. In doing that I am keen to get back in to the radio scene.
Club DJ since I was 18 for nightclubs under the Deltic Group, and from then music just become my life. I produce music, achieved my degree at Solent Uni, was an Entertainments Manager within Royal Caribbean, released my music on Spotify, and was lucky enough to present for various radio stations in the past, and even involved in the launch of local radio station now known as Enham Radio under Enham Trust in Andover.
I love to travel hence my previous career, learning to fly, chat too much, love people, and can normally be found outdoors.

Matt is Programming Director for Outreach Dance, and presents Weekday breakfast from 6-9am, and Classic Dance Anthems from midnight every Saturday night.
Adrian has been around the Dj biz since he was an awkward teenager in high school. His first gig was at the age of 16 where he wasn’t even old enough to be in the venue! Since that time, Adrian has become ‘that’ Dj in and around Melbourne. Having a passion for parties, Adrian started the event business called ‘Spice of Life Entertainment’ because (to him,) variety is the spice of life and diversity brings us together! Exploring that diversity is what made Adrian known as ‘That’ Dj because he’d play the music no other Dj’s would dare play and if it was too difficult to mix, he’d find a way to mix it and make it sound amazing!
In 2013, the event business sparked the first online label. Focussing on Techno, Trance and DnB with a little bit of House music thrown in for good measure. A second label was sparked to cater to the more commercial, EDM side of things. This was the All-Access EDM label which actually came about from a very successful Sound Cloud group that existed at that time (before the portal removed groups.) Most recently Adrian has founded the ‘House Music Melbourne’ online label which focuses on the ‘other’ house sound of Melbourne.
There are too many good songs, good sounds, good parties and good people in the world of dance music to focus on one thing is to miss out on so much of that goodness and so the best parties have always been the ones that can go in any direction! That’s how Adrian handles his sets and his events. Don’t come with an expectation, be open to what it can be!
A veteran of the Melbourne Shuffle, a horrified onlooker of Melbourne Bounce, Adrian brings it all together in a peace treaty of Melbourne, music- factional warfare!
Unblock your ears and cheers to another 23 years!

You can catch Adrian every weekday from 9am-midday, and every Friday night from 10pm-midnight for Spice Of Life.
Hi my name is Kingshott. I am a DJ and multidisciplinary artist, (visual arts to sound art & everything in between).
Originally from Selsey in West Sussex, I relocated to Wexford over a decade ago. I'm Interested in all styles of music. Growing up, my first experience with music was hearing Rock 'n' Roll and Soul being played at home, then around 1987, l was given The Buzzcocks, Singles Going Steady, album from 1979.
By this time l was starting to be influenced by Hip-Hop music coming out of the U.S.A which lead me to an interest in Funk and Soul. l wanted to know where the Hip-Hop crews were getting their samples from.
This second Summer of Love was also in 1988, with the Acid House scene and hearing the Detroit techno from the mid '80s - and lets not forget Chicago House music.
At this time music was a hot mixing pot of styles, and then a mate who was a an "Indie kid" lead me to the indie scene and Manchester scene attending gig's, warehouse parties etc. Acid House was interesting to me because the DJ's were not playing only one sort of music. It was a journey into music and a style of DJ'ing that l myself like anything goes, which is what l try to do.
Along side the music, the art around each subculture interested me - the Punk art, the B-Boy scene with its graffiti, and breaking dancing, the art and graphics coming out of the Manchester scene with its unique style and aesthetic.
Music has the power to make us smile and bring us to all types of tears. It can carry us back in time and inspire us to dance in the moment. For all our happiest days, there is music. The thing l love is how it is all connected and it unites people, bringing us all together.
