Inspired by the past, Embracing the future.
I started getting into dance music in 1991 at 13 years old when a lot of the rave music being made was hitting the charts, this exposed it to me and from then i started finding out about the true underground rave culture and the even better tunes that weren't hitting the charts. I went out to my first raves at 15 years old, raves like dreamscape, helter skelter, diehard in leicester, world dance at lydd airport hangers, pandemonium, dance paradise, fusion, pleasuredome & united dance to name a few.
Progressing from these parties I found the Exodus collective parties in luton. Free parties in warehouses, barns and quarries, and also spent time dancing round my car boot in 1998 with the norfolk crew to my 1k sub till long after the sun came up. This all progressed into something else but thats another story.........
So obviously my heart is well and truly in the old skool but you can't keep stuck in the past and I think its important for rave to keep re-inventing itself to prevent stagnation, so what i'm trying to achieve when I make my tracks is retaining the soul of the original house and hardcore, but keeping it fresh, current and with the impact modern production techniques have given - well.....thats the aim anyway.
