He trained as an Electrician but not sure if that is what he still does.

I searched it up and found an interview from 93 where he mentions that!

Also got turned down for a mobile!!

I don't think Vibes has a job. I think he just scrapes a living DJing (hence him getting National Express coachs to gigs).

I think DJ Force & Bizzy B both run T-shirt printing places?

Tim Simenon (from Bomb The Bass) owns and works in (serving customers, taking orders, cooking) his own meatball takeaway in Prague.

Ramos is an electrician, Dougal owns the Borjia nightclub in Northampton,

He actually passed his pharmacy exams in 1986 prior to embarking on his rave career.

DJ Supreme used to run a limousine business, I got a ride to HTID with him and Marley once in a stretched Merc, my most (or should I say only) glamorous DJing experience :) No idea if he still does it though as he vanished after the whole Fusion thing.

Not a DJ exactly but my old mate Olly who used to run the Destiny events & Stormtrooper/Underdog/Burning Bush etc record labels now runs a t-shirt printing business, as above seems a popular choice!

What was the whole "Fusion thing" Jedi? AS it involves Supreme I guess it involves people being ripped off in some way or another.

The main thing was the name - Supreme owned the Fusion Records brand, he did not own the Fusion events brand, Chris Grayston still did. The first events he put on were branded as Fusion Records, but he then dropped Records and just started calling it Fusion. This obviously caused all kinds of arguments and although I don't know the final outcome I imagine that is why Fusion is now run by Alex Energy with Chris's blessing (and no doubt licensing fee!)

mad p is a pastry chef in a stately home

i think slipmatt and jason kaye are full time djs.

sy went into property development quite recently. He said most of the money he earny as a dj came from production and the record labels - but now thats dried up he had to get a job.

robbie dee always on the dole.

lol - does Vibes really get national express to events?

how much do old skool djs charge now adays - £500 a set? if they get 2 sets a week then that aint too bad money.
