Newport, United Kingdom
Fell in love with acid house and electronic sounds in the late 80's.
Still obsessed with deep, weird, twisty house and techno.
Bought my first acid records at the tender age of 13 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 just a few.
Bought my first mixer from a mate at school (he got the best side of the deal) which I rigged up with 2 of my dad's old belt drive decks which led to endless hours of lost schooling and misspent childhood.
Eventually managed to hustle and scrape enough cash together to buy a set of SL1200's.
Universe, Fantazia, Raindance, Lakota, Renaissance, Brunel Rooms, Astoria, Golddiggers, Rudi's.
Watched the likes of Sasha, Carl Cox, Grooverider, Easygroove, Ratpack , Top Buzz etc make history at Raves, clubs and parties - incredible memories.
Held my first of many raves in 1990 in Wales in an old village hall.
