The duo first came to light in 1991 with Seance (featuring the rave anthem Atheama on the b-side) which was released on Reinforced Records. The following year saw a steady flow of breakbeat rave tracks, such as Flatliners, C.O.D. Rider, Peace Maker, X-Plore H-Core and two remixes of their debut Seance / Atheama release.

From early beginnings playing rare groove and funk to his first forays into acid house during his residency at London’s The Brain Club, to regular slots at seminal London clubs such as Final Frontier, Open All Hours, The Drum Club and Strutt, to having played pretty much every Festival and club worth mentioning ever since, Billy continues to DJ the world over whilst also maintaining a residency with esteemed electronic pioneers BLOC.

Dubbed the “Godfather of Rave” these days, he was one of the key figures in the development of the early UK Rave sound as well as helping create Jungle and Happy Hardcore. He co-owned Awesome Records, owned the SMD and Universal labels, was signed to XL Recordings alongside The Prodigy, and has worked very closely with Ministry Of Sound over the years. These days Matt runs his own successful brand / label called “World Of Rave”.

From outdoor raves to basement dives, Ellis Dee has been doing the business for well over 25 years now, yet he’s still searching out fresh music and is just as committed to injecting passion and energy into the dancefloor. It was back in the early days of warehouse parties that he really made his name, co-promoting the Rave at the Cave with Chalk.E White. Also used to host a show on Sunrise FM. Ellis Dee became a headliner at events like Perception World Dance and Fantazia.

“Give a little love” is one of the first underground rave anthems, which came out on absolute 2 records then re-released on Reinforced Records in 1993. “The sound of music”, another early rave anthem from “The return of Nookie EP”, also issued by Reinforced records was to catapult him into the limelight, “Snow”/”Jazzmin” on Moving Shadow, one of the first tunes to use a real jazz double bass. He was also running his own label in the early nineties (Daddy Armshouse Records) with his long-time friend Pedro, and had a number of releases to his credit.

Warlock has been DJing since 1989, constantly seeking out new music from emerging genres since starting out on London pirate radio (Pulse FM) back in the days of Acid House and Hardcore
