Shout Outs

I don’t think I have ever come across a piece or style of music purely by chance. It is through friends, family and acquaintances that I have been introduced to different styles of music, and this page is here to give each of those people a quick thank you. You all have no idea how much of an effect you have had on my life. *hugZ*

Milo – You really opened my eyes to all the amazing aspects of electronic music in general. Without you I don’t think I would have ever developed such a passion for electronic music. I think that night we went and saw Hybrid was one of the turning points in my life.

Nick – You helped me progress from breaks, to jungle and drum’n’bass. You were my raver buddy and I have a bazillion awesome musical memories of you, in your groove-mobile, your house and at events. It was with you that I discovered ragga, the various forms of drum’n’bass, oldskool, jungle, jump-up and other breakbeat offshoots. You were also the one who helped me get over my anti-MC issues.

Tom – I don’t know whether I should thank you or curse you for this, but you introduced me to the Bonkers range and everything else happy hardcore. I also had tonnes of awesome rave experiences with you.

Fe – You were my clubbing partner in the early days and I can only remember fun (and sambuca). Dancing with you (well, you dancing and me looking like a right twat) was always such a buzz – no inhibitions, just laughter and the occasional pick-up line.

Mum and Dad – Because of you I have been lucky enough to experience music throughout my entire life. I think your incredibly versatile tastes are what led to me exploring so many areas of music. I am so so lucky to have lived in such a wonderfully fun and musical environment.

Scott – You introduced me to some of the new forms of trance and tech. I’ll never forget sitting in the Uni ref, getting goosebumps as I listened to your latest fave.

There are so many more people I haven’t mentioned here. But thanks to you all for sharing your fantastic musical experiences with me.

Kate
