DJ Phantasy's brand-new book is now available to pre order.
Dream, Hustle, Win, Repeat: Three Generations Deep is the story of a man who’s been dedicated to UK dance music culture from his very first acid house rave in 1988 to his current role in the major headlining drum & bass supergroup SaSaSaS.
A personal account as told by Phantasy himself, he takes you through his life so far; his pre-music years growing up on a west London estate and running with the Chelsea Headhunters, his first wave of success as one of the UK’s most prominent rave DJs during the early 90s and his decades in the bass trenches making his way back up again, doing everything he possibly can to remain part of the scene that’s driven him every day for the last 30 years.
Electrifying highs, emotional lows, big dreams, a constant hustle and refusal to quit; remaining relevant, active and respected in one of the most competitive scenes in electronic music was never going to be easy. But Phantasy wouldn’t change a moment of it.
A must read for any true drum & bass head, junglist or dance music lover, Three Generations Deep was written with music journalist Dave Jenkins, editor of UKF and Drum&BassArena and regular contributor to Mixmag, DJ Mag, Red Bull, Resident Advisor and many more. Over the last 18 months he’s helped bring the stories of the past three generations of rave together through the eyes of Stephen Hannon… And create a book that will drop exactly 30 years after the night he became DJ Phantasy.
Featuring stories and salutes from peers and pioneers such as Grooverider, Nicky Blackmarket, DJ Hype, Top Buzz, Mikee B, Martin Ikin and the SaSaSaS family, this is a unique tale of the development of UK bass music and how Phantasy has played a role in it more than many would ever realise…
