Isle of Wight DJ brings world class talent to the Island


A NINETEEN year old DJ is bringing world class talent to the Island as part of a new string of dance nights.

Unhappy with the Island music scene, Eden Pardey from Shanklin — aka Just Eden — decided to organise his own club nights, named Bassline Sessions.

After the success of the inaugural event in January, which was headlined by garage artist FLAVA D and sold 300 tickets, Eden is now preparing for the next evening on April 8 at Ventnor Winter Gardens.

Eden said: “It’s giving all young people from ages 18 upwards something to do on the weekend, other than the IW Festival, this is the biggest event that happens on the Island.”

The house DJ, who is ‘absolutely buzzing’ for the next night, has already sold over 250 tickets.

This time, the line up boasts signed artists Holy Goof and Darkzy — and Eden will also be playing.

He said: “I’m absolutely buzzing for the next event, I never thought I would be booking and playing with huge named artists.”

Eden released his first record on Matrix Music Records last year, but he started DJing on vinyl when he was 13, before moving to CDs at 16.

Bassline Sessions is also giving opportunity for Island DJs to take to the decks, as Alfie Hancock and Eddie C will also be joining the line up.

Alfie Hancock, 18, said: “It was a super event and night out last time and it gives a chance for DJs such as myself to play with big performers.
