VALVE RECORDINGS / SOUND SYSTEM - DILLINJA & LEMON D
Lemon D also known as Kevin King is a Jungle and drum and bass DJ and producer from Brixton in South London. He set up Valve Recordings in partnership with long-term collaborator Dillinja, with whom he also designed and built the Valve Sound System, purported to be the most bass-heavy system in the world. It is the only sound system purpose-built for drum and bass.
The spelling of Dillinja has changed since he started releasing vinyl (found on some older vinyl as Dillinger). The origin of his name is unknown but it is likely that it came from one of reggae's earliest MCs, who called himself Dillinger (real name Lester Bullocks) after the famous American gangster John Dillinger. One of Dillinja's other aliases, Capone, is also linked to one of Bullocks' contemporaries, Dennis 'Alcapone' (born Dennis Smith), who produced reggae and ran a sound system in Jamaica. (with over 500 releases produced since 1991)
