Already an incredibly successful jazz vocalist in his own right, Cleveland Watkiss burst onto the Drum & Bass scene in 1995 as resident MC for the near-mythical Metalheadz Blue Note Sunday Sessions. From Fabio & Grooverider to Kemistry & Storm to Goldie, hosting the finest artists at this apex moment cemented Cleveland in the hearts and ears of a generation of D&B ravers. Showing no signs of letting up, Cleveland continues to host events and create music with new waves of creators including Calibre, Break, Om Unit, Halogenix, Makoto and many more.

Outside Drum & Bass his amazing vocal skills have seen him perform with artists from around the world such as the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Bob Dylan, Keith Richards, the James Taylor Quartet, Art Blakey, Sly & Robbie, Abdullah Ibrahim, Stevie Wonder, Nigel Kennedy, Robbie Williams, Joe Cocker, The Who, Branford Marsalis, George Martin, Julian Joseph, Lisa Stansfield, Courtney Pine, Maxi Priest, Soul II Soul, the London Chamber Orchestra, Talvin Singh, Bjork, Pete Townshend to name just a few.
