Hope Works



Badger (Alex Goodger-Marsh) is an underground Dance Music producer, multi-instrumentalist, and DJ from the UK. While his DJ sets and productions revolve around UK Garage, Bass House, and Jungle, it is his unique and innovative take on what’s expected on the genres that makes his sound so special. Badger pushes the boundaries of music wherever he can; always keeping audiences on their toes. His music and shows are an adventure through sound. On stage, he acts as the ultimate tour guide of dance music. Revealing only the best bangers from the old, the new, the undiscovered and the completely unexpected. Alex’s graduation from Bimm Bristol in 2019 marked the birth of Badger as an artist.

The progression since then has been nothing short of spectacular. A playlist of unreleased productions sent round to Bristol based promoters instantly landed him DJ sets at clubs such as Motion, Lakota, Loco Club and Highrise. In the last 2 years Badger was discovered by AC Slater (owner of LA based label Night Bass) who fell in love with his weird and wacky sound. He has since become a frequent releaser on the label. His productions have also received airtime on multiple occasions on BBC Radio 1, 1Xtra, Kiss FM and Reprezent. Godfather of Garage DJ EZ has also provided Badger consistent track support on his platform Nuvolve Radio.

Badger is a frequent performer around the UK. Last summer he played at Boomtown, El Dorado, Nass, Secret Garden Party, and Allsorts in his first festival season. A new batch of unreleased productions have since been doing the rounds among the sets of world-renowned DJs such as Skream, Interplanetary Criminal, Main Phase, VTSS, Jyoty, Miley Serious and more. Badger’s choppy grime bootleg of We Like to Party by VengaBoys seems to be a particular favourite - a lot of heat and momentum has built around the dub. Most recently, Badger’s must has been picked up and frequently supported by the likes of Interplanetary Criminal, VTSS, Main Phase, Jyoty, Miley Serious and several other critically acclaimed international DJs. He also just played the support slot of the Welsh leg of IPCs tour, as well as shows in Canada and Australia. Badger’s sound is constantly evolving and diversifying.

His prolific work rate means that you can expect each performance to have a multitude of bangers that have never been heard before. Ranging through deep dark 2 step and breaks, 4X4 swing filled growlers, fun and clever Jungle and Drum and Bass blends, complex emotional melodic masterpieces and everything in between.
