"It was about larging it. It was about pulling out a wad of 20s when you were buying your champagne at the bar. It was about buying your cocaine in an eight ball. It was about wearing designer clothes. At that top tier of that club scene, it was about giving it loads."

With a foreword by music journalist, Miranda Sawyer, Superstar DJs Here We Go! is the full, unexpurgated s

Книга об интересных фактах из биографии некоторых знаменитых людей c британской клубной сцены 90-х, треки которых до сих пор звучат из ваших стереосистем и персональных проигрывателей. Ещё одно доказательство того, что в 90-е клубная культура докатывалась до России с опозданием минимум на три года. Доказательство того, что многие клубные вещи в результате восприятия потребителем воспринимаются не так, как изначально задумывалось автором. Да и чёрт с этим.

Не покупайте русский вариант (ISBN 978-5-

Read this down on the beach over a couple if days on my honeymoon. Dom pieces together a well written and entertaining (his)story tracing the highs and then the lows of dance music, its stars and its culture. A great read for anyone who was a part of it in some way, either on the dance floor or in the DJ booth.

I bought this project for an assignment on female DJs. I am giving it one star as it did mention female DJs, which was a step up from other books which seem to brush off the fact that women do DJ and very successfully. However, women only appear in a chapter entitled Random Birds, Meterosexuals and Trannies and then the references are to girls dancing round handbags, a beautiful black girl in dreads saying @I've got the hots for you,' ;fluffy bra tops, heels and hotpants; women dressing in sexua ...more

Entertaining skim over the successes and excesses of superstar DJs and clubland culture of the 90s. Light and nostalgic read for anybody that experienced this era. However, the perspective comes across as rather England-centric and the book could have done with more fact checking and editing. For example, suggesting the Glasgow club night Colours was an ‘Edinburgh club night’ or that the ‘Trainspotting’ film name was inspired solely by the act of watching trains. Would also have been interesting ...more

Good book but I wish I had read it a few years ago (bit out of date now and could have done with an update to the current state of dance music)

A reminder of the heady days of clubbing and DJing in the post acid house days of the 1990s.
Really interesting to read about the rise and fall of the superstar DJs and superclubs.
