Station Creator - Ian 'Knocka' Dore

On the wheels of steel

Ian’s down to earth personality and ability to connect with both funky movers and uplifting anthem lovers, have made him a favourite with clubbers and promoters alike. Guaranteeing repeat bookings and a die-hard following. He learnt the ropes from DJing buddy Adey Bealing and quickly began blagging spots spinning in Cyprus, Italy, Ireland, America, Greece, Belgium, Holland, Turkey and of course the UK. His unique, high-octane brand of DJing leaves an indelible impression, be it on a pumping, funky tip, or harder, trancier vibe. “Mucking farvellous” as a clubber once put it.
