“There are not many DJs I can trust to keep the Extra Dirty dance floor jumping, but Baby Bear is one of them. I know that whatever the time-slot the Bear will taylor a set to suit. He always delivers and that’s why he is an Extra Dirty resident. He’s also extremely professional, enthusiastic and fun to be around.” – Mel Fitzpatrick, Extra Dirty
