“My only outlet for playing electronic music was restricted to friends' parties and my own bedroom,” admits the Phantasy Sound boss, who back then was instead playing at alternative clubs most nights. “I'd always look to sneak in electronic records amongst the indie songs and would see it as a success if I could keep the floor in some of the clubs, which didn't have a broadminded audience.” Needless to say, before the end of his set in Room 3 he'd been asked to become Bugged Out! resident, and started a relationship with Fabric that now stretches to a decade-and-a-half.
