Never heard his sets before - well not until recently - but what a dj!

Only heard a few oldskool and early jungle mixes (92-93ish), both studio and raves - and their all brilliant and creative. Multiple copies played, sampling etc...
Sadly he passed away years ago.

Anyone else rate him?
Did you ever catch him play at a rave you attended bitd?

He was the 4-deck mixer wasn't he?

Yes, he was.


I found some info of GE and his setup on this old Fantazia interview:

www.fantazia.org.uk/DJs/gereal.htm

“Four deck mixing is not simultaneously mixing four different records at one time. This is possible but very hard. If you imagine sometimes two mixed tracks clash, piano, vocals or strings sections. So if you had four it would be hard keeping all the tempo’s spot on and the result would be in danger of sounding a total musical jumble. My concept like that of DJ Sparrow, is quick mixing, which even through I say so myself, is that I am one of the quickest in the UK.”


Hardcore man...

He used to do record reviews in Eternity magazine, but I seem to recall he got sacked for making sexist comments one issue. Can anyone remember this? All my Eternity mags are in storage at the moment so can't check.

I only ever heard a couple of his mixes but remember liking them.

Didn't know he tried his hand at (co-)production side of things as well.

Also, the Eternity studio mixes he did a few, just heard one the other day ('94ish) - and it was brilliant. @ Mixcloud
