Eric Moore (AKA) Dj Laz-E is an Irish Broadcaster and former Turntablist with VooDoo Scratch Attack, turntable group. A life-long lover of music, Eric attributes his passion for music to his parents. Trips to the local Roller Disco with his Mother during the late 70’s, and Rock n Roll anecdotes from his Father, Thomas Moore (who would share the stage with music royalty such as Roy Orbison, The Searchers, and The Rolling Stones), would eventually ignite his passion for music, resulting in a career spanning over thirty five years.
In 1982 (age 10), Eric ditched his roller skates for a roll of lino, and became part of the first wave of Break Dancers to occupy the (at the time, Mod & Punk Rocker ruled) streets of Dublin. By 1985 (now a collector of records), Eric and Dj partner “Cut Master Jay” began to experiment musically, re-editing songs via the shoddy equipment available at the time.
In 1987, after discovering his favourite radio programme (L.L.C.R. Rock box) had been cancelled, Eric decided to take matters into his own hands, and began to approach the pirate radio stations under his new Dj handle (Dj Laz-e). With a one-off broadcast on Dublin’s Diamond 106 (where he left the mic fader up for an entire three hour show) and eventually landing a slot on Ballyfermot’s Smile FM, Eric began a career in radio that would see him (one day) host Irelands most popular and longest running Hip Hop radio show (The Plastic Attack).
Eric simultaneously set up & ran his own high school’s radio station after convincing the student council “it was the future”.
Hosted by Eric Moore (AKA) Dj Laz-e, the Plastic Attack was Ireland’s longest running Hip Hop radio programme, which aired for eighteen years (1998-2016). From it’s humble beginnings on Dublin pirate, Power fm, the Plastic Attack eventually worked it’s way on to Ireland’s National Broadcaster (RTÉ Radio) in 2011, and featured interviews with some of Hip Hop’s greatest artists (see gallery). After a four year hiatus, the Plastic Attack finally returns to the airwaves at it’s original broadcast time. Friday night’s at 9pm, GMT. www.theplasticattack.com
