Welcome to the virtual headquarters of DJ Variant, America's 7,450,403rd most loved dub selecta! With an open mind and frisky 'net connection you can bear witness to my plodding crawl up the turntablist's learning curve.

I submit monthly mixes under two artificial imprints. LO/CONCEPT Recordings signifies drum'n'bass and Sonar Signals denotes psy trance/breaks/ambient. Respect goes out to all the artists, for it's the music, not the mix, that matters most.
