Uncle Dugs


DJ, broadcaster, author, promoter, a multiple award-winning man dedicated to this scene since its earliest roots: No one does it like Uncle Dugs. 

The man behind Rinse FM’s most popular show, the Sony Award-nominated #RCFF, Simon Duggins is a veritable rave professor. Educated in the original rave trenches, graduated on the pirates brandishing a doctorate made of pure vinyl, he’s been neck-deep in rave, jungle and drum & bass culture since 1991, collecting, supporting and hardcore grafting with game-changing, scene-defining platforms such as Rinse and Kool FM.


He’s been a name on the London airwaves since the beginning but now he’s known worldwide. It’s been this way since the early 2010s when he became the first and only newcomer old school DJ.
