Please tell our readers who you are and what you do?


Hi my name is Terry Wall, aka Channel 82. I first became interested in music at a very early age and my first encounter was during my years in Secondary School when i used to watch my music teacher on decks which i was blown away by and fascinated how he was able to put two separate tracks of music together. A few years later at the age of 16 my mother brought me my first decks which were a pair of Numark Belt Drives. I spent many hours in my bedroom just experimenting with my mothers LPs, i then started to learn BPM and mixing, because i became so interested in DJ and music in general i spent the next 10 years just engrossed in my mixing. I did not believe in myself at this point that i was any good, due to a lack of self confidence. I then had it in me to put a 40 minute vinyl dubstep mix on my Soundcloud, at this point i really thought nothing would develop from this. One of the tracks i used on the mix was 'Rainbow Tear Drops' by Orien and to my amazement he mailed me on Instagram saying how good the mix was. He then asked if i was doing anything regarding DJ'ing which i replied by telling him 'no', he then told me about Sub FM which is an International radio station. I had a message from Whistla who is also on Sub FM asking me to send in a demo mix which he found good. I now have a regular slot on the show which i adore doing and being a part of. Now that people hear me on the radio i have gained confidence in myself and have spoken to numerous DJ's and listeners from all over the world. It feels like being a member of one big family with everyone sharing the same taste and interest in their music.


How would you describe your influences and how have they changed over the years?


My first influence was Jungle Packs of 95 and my mom's old dance tapes, Rhythm is a Dancer being one of my favourite tracks. I then heard more Drum and Bass and stayed with this beat of music for many more years. Then i started hearing Garage and bits of 2 step, but what interested me the most was the underground feel to the music, this was totally alien to me at the time. I wanted to know more about this sound coming out of London. A small record shop in Birmingham called Hard To Find Records sold me my first ever Dubstep vinyl and from that point i was hooked. Then it was just finding out about producers on the scene and wanting to know where it all originated. Burial has got to be one of my favourite producer of all time, his music can move you and take you on a musical journey. It has so much power.


What´s new right now?


I am looking forward to Sub FM TV which is going to be a new adventure for me and also looking forward to meeting and doing a special show with Orien sometime in the year. I have my own music to bring out and broadcast on my show and i will be bringing 3 new vinyl mixes to my Soundcloud. Also i am hoping to get on the Cardiff Dubstep scene and get to know the people who have the same interest in this music as me.
