Sid Nar (Owner of Odyssey Recordings) has been an avid listener of all forms of dance music from a young age. This progressed into a Love of Drum&Bass (dating from back to the early 90’s through to this day). Throughout the years I purchased vinyl as a hobby and have grown a vast collection since, this then led me into mixing, Spinning the Wheels of Steel as they say.
Drum & Bass has been a key music genre in my life from jungle to intelligent Drum&Bass. I was a big part of the rave scene and attended all the classic raves back in the 90’s e.g. Quest/Dreamscape/World Dance/Progression Sessions to name but a few. Having listened to and after watching the DJs play their sets, it inspired me to further my mixing skills. I chose to mainly mix intelligent drum and bass a style of music which I feel was catered for a certain ear back then. I then started my own mix tapes ‘Odyssey’ from which I started my own underground parties for close family and friends.
In 1997 I delved into sound engineering to understand the fundamentals of sound which progressed to starting my own promotions ‘ODYSSEY‘allowing me to organise events in Wolverhampton City Centre. This allowed me to work a long side Nu Directions in 2000.
My intension throughout the years was to perhaps one day, start my own record label and after gaining a certain level of knowledge, In 2008 I began to work on music production. Therefore as a result I produced many tracks (influenced by the music I grew up around i.e. Traditional Indian Music/Dance/Drum&Bass) this has & will be showcased throughout my record label ODYSSEY RECORDINGS. In addition, I plan to showcase a variety of talented producers both from the UK and Abroad. I also run an internet radio station with mixes running on rotation and go live every Saturday.
