Drum & bass is a tough old game, and sometimes we all need a little bit of support. Solving all your bass related woes we welcome D&B Deirdre...

Dear D&B Deirdre,

I used to make bangers, but as i've got older i've come to terms with my sexuality and moved into 80's synth pop and man love. My peers have shunned me but the gay crowd have welcomed me. I want back in but don't know how to go about it?

John, Maidenhead.

Dear John,

Sounds like you have reached a cross roads in your life. Your two options being bangers or poppers. I have to say if I was in your shoes the choice would be easy. I fucking love bangers. In fact my own are so good they were given a full page spread in the Shadhampton Gazette. But I digress. The only way I think you can gain the respect of your peers is by doing something selfless and daring. Perhaps wearing outrageous make up and impersonating Pat Butcher? You never know it may even catch on...

Hope this helps

Dear D&B Deirdre,

I've always been an awkward person around crowds of people and never really been that comfortable in my own skin. As time goes on I keep finding myself behaving in stranger and more antisocial ways. I used to work at the NHS, but they fired me as I was a PR nightmare and I have become the laughing stock of the internet... I feel like I should make a big statement but am worried i'm going to make a tit of myself again. What should I do?

Mr B. Ishi, London.

Dear Mr Ishi.

Well you have had it rough haven't you! Sounds to me like you need to rediscover yourself and really learn to love your body. Why not take a few pics in front of the mirror and share them with someone special, just make sure you share with the right person or they could end up online which would be just awful. As for the big statement just go for it! Be yourself. Be that tit. Here's a sneaky tip for you. I once had to make a big statement on a local hospital radio show and instead of getting all stressed out and worried I just played a tape recording I made ages ago. Deirdre 1 NHS 0.

Dear D&B Deirdre,

Me and my mate Kev have worked really hard over the years and have received alot of love. But recently i've been feeling kind of down about things. People say i've changed, that i'm not who I used to be. But maybe its them? I want to keep everyone happy, but I still don't want to be pushed into a corner. I see a lot of b*tchin' about me online, people with really nasty ways, grimey views about me. It plays on my mind alot and I feel like i'm at my threshold now... How can I confront the issue?

Karl, London.

Dear Karl,

Come on Karl don't feel down! Everyone has a wobble now and again. It's how you come back from these wobbles that's important. I think the last thing you want to do is please everyone. I tried to please everyone once and it involved a room full of strangers and a bowl full of car keys. But we're not talking about my failed marriages. This is about you! My advice would be listen to the bitching and change back. For the love of god change back. It's not them it's you. It really is you.
