Daz Pearson is one of the founding partners of Decoded Magazine and has been running the globally successful radio show with host Ian Dillon since August 2014. Originally starting out syndicated to one station Decoded Radio is now aired across the Americas, Canada, UK and Europe, India and Australia. The show now focuses on record labels and branded event features showcasing some of the leading underground dance music labels in the industry. Alongside Decoded Radio Daz also runs Decoded Residents which gives each and every contributor from management to writers a platform to showcase their individual sounds and talents whether they be DJ or production. Once a month a slot is dedicated to our Decoded Magazine Mix of the Month Competition Winner.
During his involvement in the scene he has gone from regular residencies which has seen him play events from Sankeys Manchester to Bora Bora Ibiza, event promotion including co-promotion at Gatecrasher Birmingham, Ministry of Sound London and Pacha London, not to mention co-hosting and DJ’ing at Global Underground and Saved Records New Years Eve event at Birmingham’s Q-Club.
His Rooted Deeply mix series focused his passion for unearthing great music from across many genres of underground dance music, after a short break due to focusing on Decoded Magazine he has now relaunched the series as Rooted Deeper in keeping with the same musical ethos. To keep updated see here.
