We hope you like our new website. We’ll be keeping it updated with news, blogs posts, sneak peaks of some of the book and highlights from all of the interviews. We’ll be interviewing the key movers and shapers who have shaped the UK dance music scene over the last ten years, including the DJs, producers, promoters and the clubbers themselves. We’re pretty sure you’ll find the interviews as fascinating as we are doing. Also be sure to check out the top tens section and let us know your thoughts. These are what we think are the top ten tunes and producers of dance music by genre, but everyone has their opinion so let us know yours!
