Born in Hemel Hempstead, England, in 1962. Beedle began DJing during the acid house period of the late '80s. After hearing Norman Jay play obscure tracks on the pirate station KISS FM, his interest moved towards disco.

Ashley Beedle (aka The Crazy Gods, Daddy Ash & Urban Bushmen - born 25 Nov 1962, in Hemel Hempstead, UK), is a DJ & producer. He made the leap from music lover to DJ, in the early 1980s, when British disc jockeys started playing disco & house music records over, Jamaican, sound-systems. London's melting-pot of cultures provided the young Beedle with a wide interest, in reggae, soul music, techno & jazz. Beedle's first big musical project, Black Science Orchestra, reworked old disco songs, into house tracks, which were readily accepted by US DJs, such as Frankie Knuckles & Masters At Work. Other musical projects include The Ballistic Brothers, X-Press 2 & Black Jazz Chronicles. In the late 1990s, Beedle was a demanded remixer, for mainstream acts, due to his eclectic output. Currently, Beedle remains an active DJ and, in production, focuses on X-Press 2 & solo works. Read more on Last.fm. last.fm
