Fell in love with acid house and electronic sounds in '88. Obsessed with deep, trippy, twisty house and techno. Bought my first acid records in 1988 from City Sounds in London, came back with some absolute gems; Moody Boys - Acid Rappin, This Aint Chicago - Ride the Rhythm, Kraze - The Party, to mention but a few.
Bought my first mixer from a mate at school (he got the best side of the deal) which I rigged up to 2 old belt drive decks which pissed my dad off no end! Eventually managed to hustle and scrape enough cash together to buy a set of SL1200's.
Used to frequently go to; Perception, Universe, Fantazia, Hacienda, Back to Basics, Up yer Ronson, Vague, Lakota, Renaissance, Brunel Rooms, Astoria, Golddiggers, Rudi's etc... Watched the likes of Sasha, Diggers, Seaman, Coxy, Grooverider, Easygroove, Top Buzz etc make history at free parties, raves and clubs - incredible memories. Held my first of many raves in 1990 in Wales in an old village hall!
