"“I have suffered so much debilitating anxiety before shows in the past, I don’t even know where to begin... there’s a famous show of mine in Romford in 2003. It’s still online to this day. Watch it and you can see my fear. I was terrified! But I took comfort from the company of good friends like DJ EZ and Matt Jam Lamont so it was okay. Other shows saw me completely paralysed by my own mental health." - Todd Edwards

Technical issues, travel delays and mis-matched line-ups are par for the course when you’ve been playing out long enough — not to mention the self-doubt many struggle with, even at the peak of their career. But these difficult sets, brutal as they are, can also bring about moments of breakthrough — and more often than not, they’re plain hilarious. Dave Jenkins catches up with ten DJs to hear the story of their worst moment behind the decks.
