Paul Arnold (Chew The Fat, Certificate 18, 6 Foot Stereo)
Throughout its eight-year and fifty record history, Certificate 18 remained one of the broadest churches in dance music. Label manager Paul Arnold's visionary approach to drum and bass A&R - signing Photek (as Studio Pressure), Source Direct (as Sound Of Life) and Klute before Metalheadz - was countered by maintaining an impressive electronic and downbeat profile
featuring Hi Ryse, Panoptica and Pilote. His own nights at the Bug Bar London lead the breakbeat field, and were also reflected in print through his writing for Ministry magazine. Chew The Fat went stratospheric shortly after this set, though we don't think we were entirely responsible.
